Please stay tune next year 2024 to apply for the certification program.
The ACA’s Certification Program for ACA Technicians recognises those with education, experience, and professional development within the corrosion industry. Using a points-based system considering attendance at formal training courses, hands-on experience, and ongoing professional development, ACA Technicians must have at least four years’ experience in the industry for accreditation.
Work experience in corrosion or corrosion-related fields is defined as practical experience in corrosion mechanisms, causes, control, and monitoring. The work must be technical in nature, and in the corrosion field. Work experience should assume technical control and responsibility. Work such as design, specification, and failure analysis are considered responsible work in charge, whilst routine testing and application in corrosion control such as the painting or installation of anodes are not.
Why application for certification?
- Recognition from industry peers that have met stringent minimum standards and have satisfied several requisite criteria.
- Provide a competitive advantage when applying for or tendering work.
- Satisfy criteria in Australian Standards such as AS2832.5.
- Formal recognition of training and educational activity within the corrosion industry.
- Ensure you stay up to date through engagement with corrosion industry news, events, and information through ACA membership.
Requirements to become an ACA Corrosion Technician:
- Ongoing ACA Membership as an individual Member or as a delegate of an ACA Corporate Member.
- Applicants must have completed a recognised basic corrosion course. The ACA provides an in-house version of this called the Corrosion Technology Course. This course provides no points toward accreditation and is considered a basic minimum.
- At least ten years working in a direct capacity with corrosion and its handling or mitigation, including in academic settings.
- Completion of a course in line with the accompanying table to a minimum of six points.
- A signed ACA affirmation which details the values and standards expected of accredited corrosion technicians by the ACA.
