Passive Fire Protection (PFP) Coating Inspector (Epoxy) Level 2 – Online

Special note

It has been agreed by PDTC (ICorr) to add an experience assessment to all ICorr certifications for personnel engaged in painting and coating inspection. If certification is required, candidates must as a minimum have held ICorr Painting Inspector Level 1 or Coating Inspector Level 1 for a period of two years. It is possible to transition across from other certification schemes here. If a suitable qualification is not held, then dispensation to gain certification may be given if an individual has 5 years’ experience relating to painting or coating inspection.

The online course has been developed so candidates can complete the training material at their own pace and in their own time. The examination is also completed remotely on two dates each month.

Online Learning brings the following key benefits:

  • Stress-free learning environment
  • Learn in your own time and at your own pace
  • Course content can be viewed as many times as you like prior to examination
  • Ability to continually study for your examination
  • Less time out of work
  • Save on accommodation costs
  • Save on transport costs

This course assumes all candidates hold ICorr Painting or Coating Inspector approval (any level) and therefore have a knowledge of inspection philosophy, surface preparation, anti-corrosion coatings and how to use common inspection instruments. The course will cover the inspection of modern 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.
