Hazardous Area Instrumentation Training: A Lack Of

Knowledge Can Cost You Your Job, Your Money, Your
Business... Even Your Life...

Luckily, You Can Learn Everything You Need To Know In Less

Than A Few Hours... Here's How...

You probably already know just how important Hazardous Area

Instrumentation Training is and how difficult it can be to learn everything
that you need to know. Until now, you had to spend years studying books,
reports and other training materials. You had to spend thousands of dollars
on expensive training classes...
And if you're like most people, you'd just end up more confused than you
were before you started the training.

Here’s THE Fastest, Easiest and Most Inexpensive Way To Learn

EVERYTHING You Need To Know About Hazardous Area

This training course on Hazardous Area Instrumentation offers you

the following unbeatable benefits

covers all aspects of Hazardous Area Instrumentation including all
methods of protection like Explosionproof and Intrinsic Safety

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)

Easy to understand
Full of rich graphics and animations, unlike those boring books.
Makes learning more of fun and less of a chore

Stays on your computer

No need to get refresher training. The course resides on your
computer –refer to it for as long as you like, whenever you want

This course explains the basic concepts of hazardous areas, area classification,
material & temperature classification, North American (NEC) and European (IEC)
standards, design and selection of suitable methods of protection (like
explosionproof, intrinsically safe, increased safety, pressurization, etc) for the
instrumentation & electrical equipment to be used in these areas, certification,
labeling and maintenance of the system integrity, over the entire life cycle of a
facility that has hazardous areas.

Extensive animations, graphics and actual photos, charts, graphs and diagrams
make this a wonderful learning experience.
