Soldiers, there’s a new corrosion course from TACOM. The Basic Corrosion Course for Operators is available in the Army Learning Management System (ALMS). Corrosion maintenance at all levels is critical because it minimizes material degradation, improves Soldier and equipment safety, increases equipment readiness rates, reduces maintenance costs and prolongs equipment life. It’s also part of the Command Maintenance Discipline Program (CMDP).
The new course is offered to all Army personnel, including civilians and contractors who operate and maintain Army ground equipment. It covers the basics on corrosion theory, Army corrosion publications and the essentials needed for operator-level corrosion prevention.        
Make sure to have your CAC handy to access the course on ALMS HERE.

Once you’ve logged into ALMS, enter “Basic Corrosion Course for Operators” in the Search Courses browser at the top of the page. Then find the course on the Search Results page and select Register.
For more information, visit the TACOM Corrosion Prevention and Control team’s CAC-enabled SharePoint site HERE.
