Internal Corrosion Technologist

internal-corr-tech

The Internal Corrosion Technologist exam is designed to assess whether a candidate has a thorough understanding of electrochemical and corrosion principles and is capable of performing the field tests required to appropriately monitor an internal corrosion control program. Internal Corrosion Technologist exam candidates should have sufficient knowledge and experience to determine corrective action for intermediate-level internal corrosion problems within a pipeline system and be able to select a mitigation method suitable for use on natural gas pipeline systems (taking into account all applicable variables related to a particular system). They should also be able to support the development and implementation of an internal corrosion integrity management program.

A candidate should have working knowledge of:

  • Corrosion Theory
  • Field Investigation
  • Internal Corrosion Mitigation
  • Internal Corrosion Integrity Management

Application Procedure

An application must be submitted prior to taking the examination only option to allow time for NACE to verify work experience requirements. If seeking certification through the parallel path option, an application may be submitted upon successful completion of the required NACE course, for verification of work experience requirements.
