You probably already know just how important this training is and how difficult it can be to learn everything that you need to know.

Just as the correct selection and use of gas/vapor detection equipment can save you and your workplace from disaster, the wrong selection or improper working of such equipment can actually cause a disaster!

A wrongly selected gas measurement instrument will not only fail to work properly, but it will also lull you into a false sense of security.

This is worse than not having a gas monitor at all!

This is not a hypothetical situation.

It happens plenty of times in industrial plants all over the world. As a typical example consider the recent cases below:

Case 1: Explosion in Corrugated Paper Mill in Wisconsin

Workers who were doing hot work above a storage tank that had inflammable materials inside, did not do an "explosive gas test" before they started working, leading to an explosion and fire, causing multiple fatalities.

The US Chemical Safety Board has now come out with a safety bulletin highlighting this incident. This is the latest case out of a series of cases that have happened over the past few years. Most causes can ultimately be traced to a lack of training to design personnel, safety personnel and workers about hazardous gases and the methods to detect them and prevent disasters, by using proper gas detection instruments.

Case 2: Explosion at an Ethylene Oxide facility in Ontario, California

The facility was using Ethylene Oxide, a highly explosive gas to sterilize medical devices. However it did not have proper gas monitoring, to detect presence of Ethylene Oxide, finally leading to an explosion and injuries to several workers.

Until now, you had to spend years studying books, reports and other training materials. And if you're like most people, you'd just end up more confused than you were before you started the training. However, now you can have a better way.

Here's The Fastest, Easiest and Most Inexpensive Way To Learn EVERYTHING You Need To Know About Gas Monitors

This computer based training course (we call it an XPRTU-it makes you into an expert), on Gas Monitors offers you the following unbeatable benefits.

Customer Testimonial

This is the best course I have come across in Gas detection systems. I am working in an Oil & Gas processing plant.
After completing this course, I have got lot of confidence in the system.
The information that we learn can be directly applied in our day to day operations.
The course is well written in a simple language without missing the essential information.
The information that we learn in this course cannot be learned even in a regular "fire and gas systems course" which costs multiple times than this. It is very useful for engineers who are working in design and operation & maintenance as well not to exclude sales.

Comprehensive

Covers all aspects of Gas Monitors including types of gases, what all the jargon about TWA, STEL, etc means, principles of working of different kinds of sensors, such as Catalytic Combustion, Electrochemical, Infrared, Semiconductor, PID and their selection, installation, calibration and maintenance in detail.

Cost Effective

Costs a fraction of what it would take to enroll in a classroom course or seminar ( if you can find one, that is). Also save on travel and stay. Learn in the comfort of your own home or office.

Easy To Understand

Full of rich graphics, real life plant videos and Flash based interactive animations and easy to understand real life videos- unlike those boring books. Makes learning more of fun and less of a chore.

Vendor Neutral

The course is not based upon some gas monitor manufacturer's product line, it is a completely neutral, technology oriented course. So you get a true understanding of the technology behind gas monitoring-so essential if you want to evaluate different vendors. Certainly superior to vendor training programs that may not explain all Gas Monitoring technologies (especially about technologies that they do not have any products to sell).

Just get this Gas Monitors XPRTU today and for a much lesser price that you would otherwise pay for a traditional, classroom training course, learn everything that you wanted to know about this technology. Note that this  software includes all the leading Gas Detection technologies like Catalytic Combustion, Infrared, Semiconductor, Electrochemical and Photo Ionization. No other training course anywhere else includes all of these in one package!

Of course, you could always pass this up and decide to go for that seminar or classroom training, whenever that is offered , or buy a book on this topic,

but,

remember that any of the following things can happen.....

a) this low price will not last for long

b) you will forget all about this, till the time comes for you to choose a Gas Detection technology for your plant or facility. And vendors may  give conflicting versions of which technology is best suited for your application.

c) You forget about this XPRTU program completely. Then you enroll yourself in an expensive $ 2000 classroom course, travel halfway around the globe to attend it, spend some more of your already depleted training budget on it, spend a week in a different remote city (while work piles up back in office on your desk) and then forget whatever you learned when the time comes to finally apply the concepts learned in your work.

d) You decide to skip this offer and opt to buy a book on this topic. However, there are a couple of problems with this option. The first problem is that a no single book 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. So you may have to wade through dull books, written a long time ago, to understand a new technology. Not a very appealing prospect.

So, why don't you simply get this first of its kind training software and

a) Be assured that you have the best course in an e-learning format with easy to understand  ANIMATIONS & SIMULATIONS that make learning this topic fun and easy! See above for a sample animation.

b) Get a comprehensive program that will remove all the "complexity" that is normally associated with this subject.

c) Join the hundreds of other engineers and technical professionals all over the world, who have experienced this software and benefited greatly from it.

d) Take our online exam and get Certified for FREE (on passing). Yes, there's no extra charge for this. PLUS very soon, get yourself an electronic badge too, that you can display on your LinkedIn or Facebook profile! This shows the world (including potential recruiters, potential employers and clients) that you are skilled in Gas Monitoring.

So Go ahead and BUY IT.

The investment amount is only $ 299 US at present , for the Professional Download version which will be increased shortly. Comparable classroom courses, from other providers, cost in the range on thousands of dollars.

So DOWNLOAD this XPRTU and also take our FREE online exam that results in a Certificate of Competency, on passing, that you can show to your current or prospective employers or clients.

Short on cash? Access the online version for only $99 only.
