Underground Corrosion Training Offered at AUCSC 2020

The 65th annual Appalachian Underground Corrosion Short Course (AUCSC 2020) will take place May 12-14, 2020, in Morgantown, West Virginia. Detailed information and online registration is available atwww.aucsc.com.

AUCSC is a nonprofit educational association focusing on underground corrosion, primarily pipelines and storage tanks. AUCSC offers over 100 hours of basic, intermediate, and advanced training, and provides attendees with technical information about the causes and prevention of corrosion on underground structures.

Additional courses in coatings, internal corrosion, modern, technology, water and wastewater corrosion prevention, hands-on outdoor clinics, and a corrosion fundamentals course will also be offered. 

Licensed professional engineers may earn professional development hours (PDHs) for attending AUCSC. In addition, a NACE Technician Exam Review Course and other various NACE International exams will be available. AUCSC course hours may be applied towards NACE recertification requirements.

The AUCSC scholarship program provides two scholarships for the West Virginia University (Morgantown, West Virginia, USA) system’s oil and gas program, as well as two scholarships for the University of Akron’s (Akron, Ohio, USA) corrosion engineering program.

In addition, for 2020, the scholarship program is funding two U.S. veterans in the NACE Foundation workforce development program. This program puts veterans through the NACE Basic Corrosion Course, then either the Cathodic Protection Level 1 course (CP 1) or the Corrosion Inspector Level 1 (CIP 1) course. From there, it assists in finding a job for the veterans upon successful completion of the courses.

The pre-registration fee for the entire AUCSC 2020 program is $150.00 before May 1, 2020, and on-site registration is $200.00. Please visit www.aucsc.com for pre-registration and additional information, or contact AUCSC at info@aucsc.com or (304) 293-4307.
