A comprehensive e-learning course (with free online exam & Certification) on Safety Instrumented Systems Covering more than any other course available today at a price that is less than any other!
You are here, reading this page, because you are well aware of the role of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), in protection of assets and people. In recent years, there have been extensive studies on the best ways of making our process plants safer and the conclusion is, that by just doing one thing right, which is -increasing the reliability of the Instrumentation and Control systems in a plant, can make these plants much safer.
On the other hand, negligence (or ignorance), in respect of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) can be really disastrous, literally. Look at just a few recent cases that have been listed below (scroll down to see).
Caribbean Petroleum, Puerto Rico, 2009
A massive fire and explosion sent huge flames and smoke plumes into the air at the Caribbean Petroleum Corporation near San Juan, Puerto Rico. The resulting pressure wave damaged surrounding buildings and impacted moving vehicles. The final report into the incident was released by the US Chemical Safety Board and it was non working of the overfill protection system (part of the SIS).
Petrolia, Pennsylvania, USA, 2008
Thousands of residents of surrounding areas had to be evacuated to safer places when there was a release of large quantities of Oleum (fuming Sulfuric acid), from a chemical plant. The root cause was determined to be non implementation of a proper Safety Instrumented System.
Danvers, Massachusetts, USA, 2006
Massive explosion at an ink processing plant causes destruction of plant as well as surrounding homes, injuring many residents of surrounding areas. Cause? Lack of safety interlocks and automatic shutdown systems (in other words a Safety Instrumented System) in the plant.
Morgantown, North Carolina,USA, 2006
Explosion at a polymer manufacturing plant led to total damage of the facility, with a human fatality and several injuries. Investigations found out that a lack of process safety standards and non implementation of automatic interlock systems (in other words, Safety Instrumented Systems) as the root causes of the disaster.
Buncefield, UK, 2005
The Buncefield industrial disaster was one of the biggest disasters to strike the chemical and petrochemical industry in Europe in recent years. The blasts that occurred were so loud, they were heard as far away as France! (Buncefield is in the UK) The root cause was found out to be a probable malfunctioning level instrument (part of the SIS) on the site.
The list goes on and on.....
Of course, you agree, that these systems are essential and are operational in many plants and facilities around the globe. But mere operation and existence of such a system, does not ensure, that it will always work as designed , is it not?
You need to know it in depth, to make it work for you.
To make it work for you, you need to know these systems thoroughly ( I mean not from a programming point of view but from a users point of view). You need to get trained in all the concepts and ideas, including applicable codes and standards, including good engineering parctices of these critical Systems. Note that here, when we refer to such systems, we also include Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD), Safety Shutdown Systems, High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS) and all similar systems that are used to ensure the safe operation of plant and machinery, using highly reliable instruments, controllers, valves and other electrical and pneumatic/hydraulic elements and devices.
However, the jargon associated with these sophisticated process control systems is so tedious and even confusing, that even experienced professionals cringe at the mention of Triple Modular Redundant, 2oo3 voting, SIL 3 or IEC 61508.
Does it really have to be this way?
No! Not really.
You can simply get access to this e-learning course and learn all about these systems, in the comfort of your home or office, in a very easy to understand manner. Simple and easy to learn, with several interactive animations and simulations, this is a great learning experience.
Furthermore, you also get an opportunity to take our online exam and get certified at no additional cost!
Animations & Simulations
The course has a large number of easy to understand Animations & Simulations. A picture is worth a thousand words. An animation is worth a thousand pictures. Concepts get understood easily. Compare this to listening to a boring lecture! Below is a small sample of the numerous animations and simulations that you will learn from. Note that this is just a screen grab, the course animation will be of a much better quality!
Self Assessment Test
The course has a Self Assessment Test, that helps you gauge your own understanding of the subject. Get immediate feedback on whether you correctly answered the question or not. This also helps you prepare for the online Certification Exam, that you can take & get a Certificate for free!
Everything about SIS in one package!
All the following topics are included. No other course out there covers all of this, at this price! Everything is explained in a very easy to understand manner. Examples from real life situations in plants and facilities.
Introduction to SIS
Hazard and Risk Analysis
Failures & Reliability
Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
SIS in practice

So what are you waiting for? Get this XPRTU software now, access it either online or as a Download.
Just get this interactive, self paced training course today and for a fraction of the price that you would otherwise pay for a classroom training course, learn everything that you wanted to know about SIS (but didn't know whom to ask). Note that course is
- NOT a Powerpoint Presentation
- NOT an ebook
- NOT a video of a guy speaking
It is a comprehensive, software based learning program that combines interactive animations and simulations, real life examples & situations from plants, an explanation of all difficult to understand terms in very easy language, a self assessment test and much more. It is a unique learning experience and we daresay that it is the only such program today in the world.
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, or try to surf the internet or lurk around in LinkedIn groups hoping to know more
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 explain to somebody higher up, as to why you installed the 2oo3 Safety Logic Solver instead of the alternate 1oo2 Logic Solver , OR (God forbid)-you have to explain to a government inspector why you felt that SIL 1 was adequate for your Safety Instrumented function instead of a SIL 3 that he felt should have been required.
c) You may waste a lot of time searching for online information, sometimes put there by vested interests (some vendors, who want you to buy their expensive systems) or come across a online group that has members who are only half knowledgable about the subject and hence spread a lot of disinformation. (NOTE: Abhisam is NOT a vendor of Safety Instrumented Systems, so we do not have any vested interest in a particular technology, we have your interests foremost in mind, this course is completely unbiased and vendor neutral, unlike some of those sales pitches out there, that are disguised as "free" ebooks and training courses)
d) You forget about this course completely. Then you enroll yourself in an expensive $ 3000 classroom course, travel halfway around the globe to attend it, spend some more of your undernourished training budget on it and then forget whatever you learned when the time comes to finally apply the concepts learned in your work.
e) You decide to skip this offer and opt to buy a book (or books) on this topic. However, there are a couple of problems. 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. Thus, if you wish to source your knowledge of Safety Instrumented Systems from books, you will have to buy not one, but several. They also cost a pretty penny (are not cheap at all). The cost of just two of them will be more than the price of this course.
So, why don't you simply get this first of its kind training course on Safety Instrumented Systems and
a) Be assured that you have the best course in a unique format with easy to understand ANIMATIONS & SIMULATIONS that make learning this topic fun and easy! Remove all the complexity and confusion that is normally associated with this topic. See how easy it is once you go through the course.
b) Join the hundreds of other engineers and technical professionals all over the world, who have taken this course and benefited greatly from it.
