Safety and Chemical Engineering Education (SAChE) Certificate Program
Process safety is an important but often overlooked aspect of a chemical engineer’s early and continuing education. When working in chemical engineering, it’s simply not possible to learn by trial and error when the error can have catastrophic or dangerous implications.
That's why we’ve completely updated and redesigned the SAChE Certificate Program with new interactive learning modules and a dynamic curriculum that makes incorporating process safety education easy, engaging and free.
Free for students, professors and schools. Great for careers, the profession and the planet!
A note to professors/educators: There are many permutations to integrate these modules into your Engineering curriculums. The report below is one recommended layout that you may find useful:
SAChE Courses Recommendations for Chemical Engineering Curriculum
Level One (Basic) Curriculum
The first series of courses in the program should be taken when students have reached their sophomore year and before they go into internships. These courses are meant to provide students with a foundational knowledge of process safety that will serve as a basis for the rest of the curricula.
Level Two (Intermediate) Curriculum
Level two elaborates on the concepts learned in level one, provides more technical background, and examines how the concepts are applied to real-world situations. These courses are designed to be taken at the senior level, when students are enrolled in upper-level chemical engineering courses and are preparing to graduate.
Level Three (Advanced) Curriculum & Additional Classes
Intended for senior-level students, level three courses are the most advanced. These courses explore process safety topics in more depth and detail than the level two courses do, and cover issues of concern in specific industries and areas of specialization. Students’ career paths will influence which courses are applicable. Educators may choose to require students to take some or all of the level 3 courses.

Earning a Certificate
SAChE certificates are valued by industry; therefore they can and should be added to students’ resumes. After completing each of the SAChE courses, you will be able to access your safety certificate online.
SAChE Certificate courses are recommended for all undergraduate students in chemical, mechanical and industrial engineering, as well as in chemistry. This material is also beneficial to early career professionals in industrial settings.
