"Corrodere is a cost effective way of training 'staff' in the coatings and corrosion industry and it has saved me time and money by completing this as opposed to other courses. I am certified in both NACE & ICorr.
I personally found the modules very interesting. I would recommend this type of course to any professional person who is looking to enhance his or her skills and knowledge in the industry. I found that courses such as corrodere, gave more time to improve my knowledge, especially for people who are on the move."
