HAZOP

Learn HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Study) and get Certified for free!

HAZOP study (short for Hazard and Operability Study) is a well known hazard analysis tool used for process safety management and HSE risk assessment of plants and facilities. Today it is the premier technique for evaluating risk in a wide variety of industries such as Chemical manufacturing and storage, Oil & Gas processing, Petroleum refining, Power Generation, Pharmaceutical manufacturing and many more. If you work in any kind of engineering design organization that builds and commissions facilities in the above industry sectors, then you already have heard of HAZOP. But it is not merely enough to have heard if it, you must master the technique and also have a certificate that proves it.

Do not get left behind! Get your HAZOP Certification today.

With this easy e-learning software based training course (which we call an XPRTU-since it makes you an expert) learn all that you need to know about the technique alongwith real life applications and use cases. With its numerous animations & simulations, real life videos, actual workplace examples and a case study included, this is the modern way to learn it, sitting in the comfort of your home or office, at your own pace. Once you have gone through the entire course, then you can practice questions in our Self Assessment Test, after which you can take the online exam, which on passing, gets you a Certificate of Competency, that shows the world, that you are a certified HAZOP Professional.

Why get the course from Abhisam?

There are very few training courses out there that teach the HAZOP study technique thoroughly well, in a structured manner. Plus most of them are the old "brick and mortar" classroom courses. Do you want to sit there for hours while some boring professor uses chalk and blackboard to teach? A superior way is to learn by interactive simulations and animations- that too at your own pace. This Abhisam course allows you to learn at your own pace. No need to hurry.

Can't I read a book to understand it?

Of course you can get books on this-but sadly many of them are outdated and not as relevant as they once were. Plus the diagrams and images are hard to read, as compared to the large animated examples in this software based XPRTU. What you need is a practical, "why-we-do-it and how-to-do-it" training course and this is it! Finally, even after you read a book and understand it, you will still need to get certified. Why not have this course and get certified for free? Yes that's right, we do not charge you for the exam seat and certification, as long as you do it within the given time.

This e-learning course covers everything that you need to do in detail, that will make you a pro in hazard and risk analysis and related areas of process safety management.

Animations & Simulations

This e-learning software makes extensive use of Animations & Simulations to help you learn very easily. See below for a VERY SMALL sample of the kind of content that is inside the course. Note that these are low resolution screencaptures. The actual animations in the course look much better!

 

Situational Videos

HAZOP is not only about technical aspects, but also about Management. Videos inside this XPRTU software enable you to learn about it. See such a sample video below. Note that these are low resolution screencaptures. The actual software has the complete video and looks better too!


Self Assessment Test

This e-learning software  has a Self Assessment Test that enables you to know your own understanding of the subject and also to help you prepare for the Certification Exam. Note that Enterprise users also get opportunity to take additional mock exams before they take the Certification Exam. Below is just a Screenshot image. For live examples, please view the Demo here.

Case Study

After studying many real life examples, the final module will have a Case Study. This will be a full fledged mock HAZOP of a Process Unit and includes realistic processes, P & IDs and  filled-in worksheets. After this is over, there is also an Audit of the HAZOP so conducted, to make it more realistic. Before and After P & IDs are included.

HAZOP Case Study

The above are all part of the Online and Download versions of the software. In addition, the Enterprise Version also has additional Case Studies of other commonly used Process Units such as Distillation Columns, Overground Storage Tanks, Filtration units and so on. This gives an easy way to carry out your own HAZOP Studies in your own plant or facility by looking at these template examples. Below is an example of a P & ID which is part of the Distillation Column Case Study in the Enterprise version.

Customer Testimonial

I have worked in the International Oil and Gas Industry as a technical instructor for more than thirty years. Most of my work has been with those whose first language is not necessarily English; hence "understanding" can be a problem!

I have both used and recommended the products of Abhisam. My field of work has been in the areas of instrumentation and automation.  The materials are presented in a very professional manner being clear, concise and very easy to understand.
I recommend them highly to all engineers and technicians in our industry. It is my intention to increase my library of Abhisam training materials and to use them not only to enhance my own fields of work but to hopefully increase Abhisam sales! They are excellent and I recommend them highly. No praise is too great!!
