ABYC MARINE CORROSION CERTIFICATION OFFERED IN MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO

Corrosion Certification

Our four day Corrosion Certification course hosted by Port Credit Yacht Club, with instructor Kevin Ritz is designed and intended for those with a minimum of 3-5 years practical experience in the marine field. It is highly recommended that certification candidates already have ABYC electrical certification before attempting the corrosion certification program. It is presumed by the course content that candidates have a reasonable understanding of basic concepts such as electrical grounding, electrical current flow, galvanic isolation and basic marine electrical terminology.

The successful certification candidate should be familiar with all of the ABYC electrical standards, although applicable standards will be reviewed as part of the course. Course content is broken out into 16 topic areas that will be presented over a three and ½ day period. The three-hour certification exam will be administered during the fourth day of the program from late morning into early afternoon. The exact time for the exam will depend upon varying class sizes and review time needed.An Example of the 16 topic areas that the candidates should have some pre-requisite background in are basic molecular theory Chemical reaction fundamentals Basic electrical theory Corrosion processes The galvanic series Corrosion types Induced (electrolytic) Corrosion rules and electron movement Corrosion control/material properties Relevant ABYC Standards review Cathodic protection systems Corrosion mitigation Protective coatings Aluminum outdrive issues and solutions Conducting a corrosion survey Protection calculations and troubleshooting.

Potential certification candidates will be sent the ABYC Marine Corrosion Certification study guide and a copy of Everett Collier’s book The Boatowner’s Guide to Corrosion, which will be referenced throughout the course. 

Candidates should expect that references to relevant ABYC standards such as ABYC E-2, A-28, A-31, E-10, E-11, T-1, TA-27 and TE-30 will occur during the program. Students are responsible for supplying their own standards materials. Be advised that the course instructor WILL NOT have standards available for distribution during the class. Access to the standards is the responsibility of each certification candidate. Companies sending multiple employees to the program are advised that they may need to make copies of the above mentioned standards and distribute those to each of the attendees from their company. ABYC is not responsible for supplying standards in any format to certification candidates during a class session.

Candidates may reference all study materials including the supplied study guide, class notes and additional ABYC standards in either printed or computer-based form during the certification exam. The exam is timed at 3 hours and is comprised of approximately 200 multiple-choice questions. Candidates must present a photo ID on exam day. Calculators are allowed during the exam.
