What will I learn?

In addition to the knowledge of a Level 2 Engineer, this course will cover problem areas and troubleshooting of CP systems, investigation of testposts or stations, and insulating flanges and monoblocks. You will also learn about cased crossings, low potential readings, interference effects and mitigation. The course will also teach you about AC interference, DC interference, earthing structures, coatings and CP electro osmosis, and holiday detection.

What will I leave with?

This course builds upon the information given in the cathodic protection level 1 and level 2 courses to provide a higher level of understanding, including areas such as troubleshooting, interference, mitigation and more.



What else should I know?

Candidates should be qualified to Level 2 and subsequently have a minimum of two years of experience in cathodic protection or have a practical background in electricity, corrosion technology or engineering with a minimum of three years of experience in cathodic protection.

Candidates from either route must have successfully completed an approved course of training in cathodic protection at the appropriate level.

A mature candidate route offering exemption from formal training is available for Level 2 and Level 3 candidates who are able to demonstrate at least three and five years respectively of recent continuous experience in cathodic protection.
