Corrosion Training Course – May 2023

May 23, 2023 @ 8:00 am - May 25, 2023 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Location: STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES World Headquarters – 10150 Old Columbia Road, Columbia, MD 21046
Dates: May 23 – May 25
Session times: 8:00AM – 5:00PM daily

STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ subject matter experts (SMEs) deliver educational training courses that address solutions that repair, protect, and enhance civil and structural infrastructure.


This training course provides information about corrosion in concrete, including how it develops, systems applied for protection from it, and techniques used to assess the condition of a corroding concrete structure. This course also engages participants in a series of practical lab exercises to reinforce course topics and introduced concepts.

This is a 3-day, 30-hour course approved for 30 CEUs.


  • Develop a basic understanding of electricity and chemistry as it relates to corrosion theory and corrosion in concrete.
  • Understand cathodic protection principles, review galvanic and impressed current protection systems, and determine when and why to use each system.
  • Complete hands-on training that includes operating and testing various galvanic and impressed current cathodic protection systems.
  • Discuss corrosion condition assessment investigations and address testing techniques used for this purpose.
  • Apply understanding of topics/concepts learned in a series of lab exercises.


Our team of corrosion experts is led by Eyad Alhariri, Vice President of Last Longer Solutions for STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES. A NACE-certified cathodic protection specialist, Eyad has experience in the design, installation, testing, and commissioning of both conventional cathodic protection systems as well as cathodic protection for steel in reinforced concrete structures. He is a member of IEEE, SCS, and NACE, and recently became a NACE instructor for Cathodic Protection Certifications.
