To being a corrosion ‘nerd’

I am someone who loves to study. This may sound ‘nerdy’. In fact, someone called me that once. I was almost 22 and even then I was OFFENDED. Hah!
This is something so many of us have struggled with. In fact, just to not be a ‘nerd’, there are people who have simply stopped studying as much as they used to. After all ‘OMG, you study so much!’ is not really ‘cool’ after a certain age.
Not anymore! I have learned that everyone is ‘nerdy’ in their own way, even those who pride themselves of being ‘laid back’ and proceed to call others ‘nerds’. 
So, here’s to you, the sports lover. YES, I am looking at you. If you can mouth off the statistics for your favourite team, you are a nerd, only a sports one.
In fact when I get hold of a magazine for corrosion, I have to take a deep breath and choose which article to read. Obviously, I want to read all the articles at once! There is so much to learn, especially in terms of science.
Well, guess what! This pandemic has turned each of us into nerds! Everyone is up and about completing certifications in a variety of topics. I have not been exposed to half of them.
I have wanted to signup for so many online courses, but two things always held me back –
1. Money 
Some of the exemplary courses are expensive. As a fellow course creator, I can totally understand this. However, as a student, I am unable to make myself go for it.
2. Time
As a WFH person, it is difficult to get sufficient time to concentrate AND complete the course in time.
Hence, when I designed the courses for my website CORROSPECTIVE , I decided to make them short and detailed.
Thus, there are three categories – Major, Mini, and Micro. The name itself defines the scope of the course.
Keeping in mind the critical issue of time, I have uploaded courses of only Mini and Micro levels. The Mini courses include sections related to electrochemistry, types of corrosion, testing methods, and corrosion prevention methods for Oil and Gas, and Marine industries. They are a comprehensive explanation of the most salient points. 

You have to put in a total of just 3 hours, AT YOUR OWN PACE!

Do you not have 3 hours? No problem! Do you have 30 minutes?
Then the Micro courses are for you! I have had students who said they want to know only about the types of corrosion. Some of them wanted to brush up only electrochemistry. If you are one of them, this category is PERFECT for you!
Do you want to try a course before deciding? No problem!

So, let’s take pride in being nerdy! Let’s become #corrospective!

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?

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!
