To help water utilities comply with recent and potential regulations intended to better protect communities from lead exposure in drinking water, AWWA and the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA) have launched a new corrosion control eLearning program.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The first three courses in the certificate program are now available! Courses range in length and are designed to be self-paced and completed in order. Each course provides participants with access to instructors during interactive "office hour" sessions to review course content.
With the announcement of the Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan, water utilities need targeted and credible resources to help craft the best lead reduction plan for their specific community, including strategies for corrosion control. This training guides participants through a decision process that experience has shown to be successful in developing corrosion control strategies.
EL285 - Corrosion Control Theory and Treatment Options
Course Length: 2 Hours | $180 Member/$225 Nonmember
Course #1 is aimed at demystifying corrosion control and provides a guide to the basics of internal corrosion control. The Corrosion Control Theory and Treatment Options course covers topics such as:
Prerequisite/Background: Please note that the course Corrosion Control Theory and Treatment Options (EL285) assumes a basic knowledge of water chemistry. If needed, we encourage you to pair EL285 with AWWA’s EL228 – Basic Math & Chemistry eLearning course for a water chemistry refresher.
Module 1: Basic Concepts for Understanding Corrosion in Drinking Water Systems
Module 2: Corrosion of Metals Commonly Present in Water Systems
Module 3: Predicting the Risk for Corrosion and Metal Release
Module 4: Corrosion Control Treatment Methods

EL286 - Assessing Need for A Corrosion Control Evaluation
Course Length: 4 Hours | $230 Member/$275 Nonmember
This course, the second in the AWWA-ASDWA Corrosion Control Certificate Program, will help the learner explore aspects of corrosion control theory that can be used to select and test Corrosion Control Treatment (CCT) that best minimizes the release of lead and copper from distribution system and premise plumbing materials.
Module 1: Importance of Applying Corrosion Control Treatment
Module 2: Data To Collect To Support Decisions
Module 3: How To Analyze Data To Support CCT Decisions
Module 4: When Is It Appropriate To Initiate Or Revisit CCT?
