An Aspen Plus Certified User will allow you to have the in-depth understanding and practical skills required to build models and interpret results using Aspen Plus. The certified user is also capable of applying simulation skills to solve real world problems and achieve their sustainability goals.
Passing this exam will demonstrate that you have the skills in building process simulations including defining the properties environment, creating flowsheets with unit operations, and utilizing available tools for analysis and reporting. You will be able to demonstrate fluency with some more advanced topics such as convergence, troubleshooting, and detailed distillation modeling.
As sustainability is a cross-disciplinary field of study, measuring the challenges of sustainability requires knowledge and building solutions into the technical insights of software programs/systems (engineering, planning, and management).
