Course overview
This one-hour, self-paced course designed for individuals with a basic understanding of cathodic protection principles.

This course offers practical examples of Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) design for buried pipelines, focusing on the selection of the most effective and cost-efficient system. Participants will explore three primary types of anode bed designs, including remote (conventional), distributed, and deep anode, and gain insights into their unique applications.

By the end of the course, attendees will be well-equipped to make informed decisions on ICCP system design to ensure the protection and integrity of buried pipelines in various installation scenarios.
