Course Breakdown

A102: MIC and Corrosion Management Systems 

This is an excellent introduction point for MIC and how it relates to Corrosion Management Systems. By understanding these two distinct principle, a student of MIC can develop their knowledge and skills around MIC Threat Assessment, MIC Mitigation, and MIC Monitoring.

Through the implementation of standards and guidelines to support asset integrity, this course provides clarification on how to outline and develop a CMS using data to enact better corrosion management strategy.

A103: Fundamentals of MIC Threat Assessment 

The Fundamentals of MIC Threat Assessment course introduces how to correctly assess a MIC threat, including the type of data required to hold an assessment. The capacity to identify key abiotic corrosion mechanisms and the impact on corrosion management system.

A104: Fundamentals of MIC Mitigation 

This course introduces mitigation measures into MIC management. Student learns to develop a strategy of mitigation based on the data they procured. Providing awareness for deciding how to test and make knowledgeable mitigation decisions.

A105: Fundamentals of MIC Monitoring 

This course introduces the final part of the MIC offering, complementing corrosion management systems, MIC threat assessment, and MIC mitigation. Without monitoring, it is difficult to determine whether prior measures have maintained their effectiveness. The final of the four courses ties into all MIC knowledge into comprehensive understanding of combatting MIC.
