CCPSF: CCPS Process Safety Fundamentals Certificate Program | AIChE

The CCPS Process Safety Fundamentals Certificate Program (CCPSf) is designed for students, early career professionals, and anyone who intends to build their process safety competency. It is ideal for the mid-career professional who is adding process safety responsibilities to their job. If your goal is increasing your process safety knowledge, then CCPSf is right for you.

CCPSf Courses

The CCPS Fundamental (CCPSf) recognizes those individuals who focus on process safety either in their education or employment, who have taken the 24 (SAChE) courses listed in the CCPSf program, and who intend to continue increasing their process safety knowledge.

Finishing the certificate program is based on the completion of 24 Safety and Chemical Engineering Education (SAChE) courses, grouped into five sections of 3–6 courses each:

  • Process Safety Basics
  • Introduction to Hazards
  • Understanding Risk
  • Practical Applications for Managing Risk
  • Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) Pillars

Credit is given for any courses already completed. If you have already completed any of the courses within this program, please contact ccps-certified@aiche.org before enrolling in the CCPSf Certificate Program to receive a discount off of the bundle price for the remaining courses. You must request the discount prior to enrolling. Refunds will not be given after purchase of the CCPSF bundle for courses already completed. Students will be required to pay a small administration fee, but the actual courses are free for students. The prorated discount does not apply to the student fee, as it is already greatly discounted.

Why Apply?

The self-paced courses are aligned with the CCPS RBPS Elements and will start the student or Early Career Professional on the path to the CCPS Process Safety Professional Certification (CCPSC).

Completion of the CCPSf rewards a certificate acknowledging the achievement.

Are You Ready for More?
