Key Benefits of the Course

Are you an employer? (Manufacturing or Engineering Consulting company or Industrial Automation supplier or a Contracting Company)

You know that it’s YOUR responsibility to train your employees… So what are your options?

Intrinsic Safety and designing and maintaining Intrinsically safe loops is not a subject that is taught in engineering schools.

Many Instrument & Control Engineers have to learn this from reading complex documentation like IEC standards.

So if you are an employer who has to train engineers in Intrinsic Safety, you have two options.

Option 1: You could pay thousands of dollars to send employees to live training workshops, or several hundreds of dollars on study guides, books and courses…

Option 2: You can buy this interactive training course that has proven to be the fastest and easiest way for employees to learn… And RETAIN… Information about this important subject.  

We make the learning process fun and easy. Our e-learning course is full of graphics and animations/ simulations that are entertaining to watch, incredibly simple to understand, and provide the fastest and easiest way to learn everything you need to know about this complex subject..when you go through the program, Intrinsic Safety will no longer appear complex.

We’ll Teach You Everything You Need To Know regarding this… And We’ll Make It More Fun To Learn, Easier To Understand, And More Cost Effective Than Any Other Training Solution… Guaranteed!  

Special Enterprise Pricing for companies! Scroll below to see options.

Just for your information, here are some of the accidents in the news…reported and investigated by the Chemical Safety Board. Directly related to lack of knowledge about hazardous areas.

In addition to the Self Assessment questions in some of the above modules, you can also take this test at the end to know how well you have understood the subject. It has some more questions. This can help you practice before you take the certification exam.

Just get this Intrinsic Safety online training course today for a much lesser price than any other course out there!

No other course (Classroom or e-learning or software or online or video or any other) includes all of these modules in one course!

Can I not get this information free from elsewhere?

There is a myth  “Just Google it”

Unfortunately it is not true. If you Google for it you are likely to get a large number of Hazardous Area Instrumentation related articles, videos, ebooks and other material.  Many of these will focus on protection techniques such as Explosionproof or Increased Safety.

Hardly anything will be available about Intrinsic Safety.

You may also get a lot of Hazardous Area Wallcharts from different vendors.

They will have very little information on Intrinsic Safety.

You can refer to some manufacturer catalogs.

However, none of these will teach you

How does an Intrinsically Safe Barrier actually work? (Find out in our animations)

How does it tolerate faults in the safe area and prevents them from appearing in the hazardous area?

How do Intrinsically safe circuits actually prevent explosion?

When should you use a Zener barrier and when should you use an Isolator?

What is the Entity concept?

How do you match the parameters of the zener barrier or isolator to the instrument?

What is the importance of cables?

You will find all your questions answered here and many with animations so that you can easily grasp complex concepts.

Also, Earn a Certificate of Completion, when you pass the associated exam and also get an electronic badge that can be displayed online on places such as LinkedIn. Get Noticed by employers and customers!

Can I not simply buy a book? That will be much cheaper!

Of course, you could always pass this up and decide to go for  buy a book on this topic,


remember that there are some disadvantages with this approach

a)  The first is that not a single book is available on the market, that covers all the topics that you need to know. On the other hand, there are a lot of things in every book, that you can safely skip, without missing anything.

b) Some of these books may be outdated and obsolete as the standards keep on getting updated whereas the book remains as it is.

c) Watching an animated simulation makes you grasp a concept much faster than merely reading about it.

and Finally,

d) Nobody gives you a certificate if you simply read a book.
