SSPC Fireproofing Inspector Course

SSPC Fireproofing Inspector Course

Over the years an increasing awareness of fireproofing requirements on onshore and offshore structures has brought to light a definitive need for proper inspection of applied materials.
Due to demands led by the passive fire protection industry Corrodere has collaborated with the globally recognised Society for Protective Coatings - The SSPC and developed an online fireproofing inspection course to meet these demands around the world.
The course is suitable for SSPC, NACE, Frosio or ICorr level 2 inspectors or Level 1 inspectors who are currently working with passive fire protection systems. The course requires that all candidates hold a recognised coating inspection certificate and have a strong understanding of surface preparation, anti-corrosion coatings and the use of a variety of inspection gauges and tools.
The course will also benefit personnel who have an interest in passive fire protection such as plant managers, asset owners, coating and fire protection suppliers etc. A certificate of completion will be issued if no formal coating inspection qualifications can be demonstrated.
The course covers both thick & thin film intumescent used to protect structures from cellulosic and hydrocarbon fires. An overview of other types of fire protection used in the construction industry is also covered.
