The Australasian Corrosion Association holds a number of training courses and technical events throughout the year to inform organisations and individuals about the latest advances in corrosion mitigation.

The first event of the year, the Concrete Structures and Buildings technical event, will be held on Thursday, 21st February at the Oaks on Market in Melbourne, and will cover all aspects of concrete assets ‘from cradle to grave’ and all the challenges facing the industry. It will feature presentations and case studies from some of Australia’s major road authorities, construction companies and suppliers, sharing the latest industry knowledge, with a focus on designing and constructing durable assets within timeframes and budgets, and extending the life of assets.

April’s event on Protective Coatings and Applications will take place on Thursday, 4th April at the Royal Society of Victoria in Melbourne, and will look at the real-world challenges that face the protective coating industry, as well as its triumphs. Protective coatings are used across a multitude of industries including construction, infrastructure, oil and gas, and mining. There will be a small trade show component, with trade table bookings available on the event registration page.

Maximising Durability in the Water Industry will take centre stage on Monday, 6th May, also at the Royal Society of Victoria, with an event focusing on investigating ways to reduce the impact and cost of maintaining aging assets in the water and wastewater treatment industries. Valuable water is being lost due to corrosion, with the total cost of corrosion in the Australian urban water industry estimated at $982 million (ACA Corrosion Challenges Report 2010). With presentations and case studies from water authorities and major asset owners, this event will explore both failures and successes in the industry.

Each of these technical events will be followed by networking drinks, and sponsorship opportunities are available.
