Course created according to the FROSIO curriculum defined by the FROSIO Council. This training with both theoretical and practical exams is a natural career progression for anyone with a successfully completed apprenticeship or for anyone with appropriate experience in anti-corrosion work.
The examination includes a theoretical and practical part each four hours long. To meet the requirement for certification, the candidate must pass both parts of the examination, which will normally be conducted in conjunction with the training course. If the candidate does not pass one of the two parts, this part may be retaken and passed within 5 years.
A candidate that does not pass the examination has two further attempts to pass. Thereafter, the candidate must attend a new training course.
The examination is not considered approved until the candidate has passed both the theoretical and the practical exam.
A passed examination has a validity of 5 years. The certificate may be issued at any time within that period. If the certificate is not issued within the five year period required a new examination (both the theoretical and practical) to obtain certification.
