If examination is required, candidates must hold ICorr Painting Inspector certification. No certification needed if course is used for information only. A 2 day course route to certification is available without holding a Painting Inspector approval.
Mechanically fixed methods are not covered. It has been agreed by PDTC (ICorr) to add an experience assessment to all ICorr certifications for personnel engaged in painting and coating inspection. Full details of the changes are to be provided on request.
This course is designed to prepare individuals for the ICorr Fire Proofing Inspector Level 2 examination. This course assumes all candidates hold ICorr Painting Inspector approval (any level) and therefore have knowledge of inspection philosophy, surface preparation, anti-corrosion coatings and how to use common inspection instruments. The course will cover the inspection of common types of Passive Fire Protection as found on hydrocarbon installations for both on and offshore facilities. This will include structural members, decks and bulkheads and storage or process tanks and associated pipework. Mechanically fixed methods are not covered.
