The new ICorr Passive Fire Protection (PFP) Coating Inspector (Epoxy) Level 2 course is now live. This totally rewritten course replaces the previous Fireproofing Inspector Level 2. It has been created in partnership with ICorr, PFPNet & IMechE Argyll Ruane.

The purpose of this new course is to train and examine inspectors of epoxy intumescent Passive Fire Protection (PFP) on the inspection of common types of epoxy coatings used to protect against hydrocarbon fires on installations for both on and offshore facilities.

Note: It is required that candidates must as a minimum have held ICorr Painting Inspector Level 1 or Coating Inspector Level 1 for a period of two years

We have 3 options available to book as of today.


The recertification course can be booked now and is able to be completed online from anywhere in the world at your own pace. Holders of the ICorr Fireproofing Inspector course can recertify and transition to the new course by completing the online learning and an online exam.

Candidates can also transition from the SSPC/AMPP Fireproofing Inspector course to the ICorr Passive Fire Protection (PFP) Coating Inspector (Epoxy) certification.
