The Liberty Bell Corrosion Course (LBCC) provides systematic and progressive coverage in developing corrosion technology as well as “state of the art” expertise presented by recognized specialists from industry, government, and scholastic areas. The LBCC is actually several independent, concurrent courses that are presented over the scheduled conference period. Each course is a well-designed mix of fundamental and advanced information presented from a practical point of view.
Basic Corrosion Control
This program is a two day course to teach basic corrosion control. Speakers will be representatives from the corrosion control industry. Classes on basic corrosion theory, coatings, galvanic cathodic protection, impressed current cathodic protection, stray current corrosion, field testing techniques and record keeping. Attendee completion certificates indicate professional development hours of training afforded through this course.
Professional Development Hours:
Attendance at the Liberty Bell Corrosion Course will provide Professional Development Hours for technicians and engineers who need training classes to maintain their certification.
Exhibitors will be on site to show their products and services between and after classes. Students are encouraged to spend their free time before and after classes in the exhibit hall.
Advanced Underground Corrosion Control
This is an interactive course on corrosion control technology. Recognized experts from leading-edge companies will be presenting classes on a variety of topics. Instructors will emphasize basic theory, troubleshooting and testing, and advanced topics. Attendee completion certificates indicate professional development hours of training afforded through this course.
NOTE: RECTIFIER CLASSIS FULL!
The two day rectifier troubleshooting and repair course will include in-depth classroom as well as “hands-on” training covering techniques and procedures required to analyze problems and perform the necessary repairs on rectifier units. Course topics will include some basic electrical and cathodic protection theory along with an explanation of the various types of rectifiers that are used in the corrosion control industry. Will be instructed by C.M. Nelson.
|Lunch and Coffee Breaks will be provided both days of the Course.||There is plenty of free parking.|
