If examination is required, candidates must hold a Painting Inspector certification (any level). No certification needed if course is used for information only. A 3 day course route to certification is available without holding a Painting Inspector approval – please enquire. Fireproofing is not covered in this course; see Fireproofing Inspector ICorr Level 2. 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 published in the ICorr REQ DOC.
This course is designed to prepare individuals for the ICorr Insulation Inspector Level 2 examination. This course assumes all candidates hold an ICorr Painting Inspector approval (any level) and therefore have some knowledge of inspection philosophy. Some corrosion and coating knowledge is also important for the insulation inspector due to the large amount of corrosion problems which have arisen under insulation. Inspection of both thermal (hot and cold) insulation and acoustic insulation is covered and is applicable to pipework, vessels and equipment used in the gas, oil and process industries.
