!! Can bacteria get adapted to biocides so that every now and then it must be changed?

!!  Are non-metals (particularly, composite and plastics) immune to MIC?

!! What is the likely MIC mechanism in soil environments?

Why should I ATTEND?


influenced corrosion (MIC) is a unique type of corrosion with the microbes
being the reason for the corrosion to occur, rather than a traditional
corrosion cell.

MIC is a known issue in many strategic industries such as, but
not limited to pipelines, refineries, powerplants, and even PV solar panels.

However, MIC is still a significant source of confusion.

Hence, it is crucial
to get hands-on skills and knowledge to define and cure it more effectively
through more realistic prevention/mitigation integrity strategies based on
general corrosion technology.

What will I learn?

“Six important myths currently accepted and used by industry”

  • Electrochemistry in corrosion
  • Relevance of electrochemistry to MIC
  • Introduction and importance of MIC
  • Classification of micro-organisms, biofilm
    formation, and its electrochemical importance
  • Corrosion (prediction) models and patterns in MIC
  • Detection, chemical
    management, and treatment of MIC
  • Pre-and
    post-commissioning practices
  • General patterns and
    paradigms to recognise and deal with MIC

 What should I be?

  • VPs and
  • Division
  • Senior
  • Researchers
  • Inspectors
  • Practitioners
    of corrosion control, asset integrity, and materials selection

What industry should I be from?

  • Pipeline
  • Water
    & wastewater treatment
  • Oil and
    gas (upstream and down-stream)
  • Power
  • Marine
  • Chemical


“In-workshop exercises to apply the concepts to examples”

  • Gaining a better understanding of the importance
    of corrosion management routine as applied to MIC
  • Understanding
    corrosion (especially microbial corrosion) mitigation methods more efficiently
  • Learning the most
    sensible and trustful way of MIC treatment
  • Recognising MIC from
    other corrosion manifestations
  • Capable of giving
    more feasible advice on materials selection and biocide control
  • Differentiating
    “myths” from “realities” in MIC mitigation
  • Design/apply
    prevention/mitigation of MIC practices

My website –

When I began to conduct online courses for corrosion and coatings, I had participants who eagerly attended them. However, there were many who could not find the time due to their professional and personal commitments. On my end, I was unable to conduct sessions for more than one hour everyday due to my commitments.

    As a result, I was left with a feeling that I should do something more to share corrosion with others. This led to me to starting my website.

    After numerous difficulties, I was able to get it up and running.

    I am pleased to announce that is LIVE!

    This website is based on two main qualities -EASE and FLEXIBILITY

EASE of access and learning

FLEXIBILITY of time and requirements

Here are a few FAQS below-

What is it?

It is a website with online courses available for purchase.

When I access them?

Once you buy a course, you can access it anytime!

How do I know if it is good enough?

There is a TRIAL COURSE – absolutely FREE! Contact me to check  out the trial course!

Will there be more courses?

Absolutely YES! Going ahead, I have many more courses in the works related to coatings and cathodic protection.

What if I don’t find the course I want?

Contact me and let’s discuss! I will design and put up a course as per the information you require!

Can I get a preview of the courses?

YES! There are previews available on the website under each course. I will also be uploading the preview to my Youtube channel soon!
