  • Marathon Petroleum Company

    Econ & Planning Forecaster

    I can see how the certification for Aspen PIMS could help to develop you professionally. When taking the exam, I learned some things that I didn’t pick up in class. I also really like the comprehensive report that identifies my strengths and areas of improvement. Overall, I am glad that AspenTech is offering a certification and I would definitely recommend to others.

  • Linde Engineering North America


    I took the Aspentech exam to be an Aspen Certified User in Aspen Capital Cost Estimator®. I am impressed how the exam was well prepared and very much inclusive to show users the software capabilities. I suggest studying and preparing for the exam. Being a Certified ACCE User will enhanced my position as an estimator in front of the management and shows the importance of self-development. I would recommend my fellow estimators in the oil/gas industry to take the exam and be an Aspen Capital Cost Estimators® Certified User.

  • Oman Refineries and Petrochemicals Company L.L.C

    Senior Plant Scheduler

    I am honored to be the first Certified User of Aspen Petroleum Scheduler(APS) and fully recommend the certification to my peers. The APS along with the PIMS certification gave me not only a sense of achievement but also helped with my career advancement giving me the opportunity to take the lead on a high profile Planning & Scheduling project for a new refinery.

  • Concord Blue

    Process engineer

    As a result of achieving Aspen Certified User status, I was selected to run a key project within my business. Aspen User Certification was a fantastic opportunity for me.

  • Koch Industries

    Process Control Engineer

    The knowledge and skills I gained while preparing for the exam solidified the material I learned in the classroom. This directly translates to my job as an APC Engineer. Nowadays, It’s easy to look up anything. However, when you have to solve a problem on the fly, there’s no time to “look up”. You have to recall the material learned and solve the problem instantaneously. The exam prepares you to show up and face the blank sheet and hit the ground running. When you take the exam, it gives you a personal satisfaction knowing you can face a blank sheet without panicking and solving interesting problems. Thanks to the exam, I can confidently tackle any APC challenge.

  • ExxonMobil

    Sr Research Engineer

    The certification covers the critical theories and practical problems to effectively exam users’ understanding of the basic concepts and the capability to apply Aspen Plus to real life challenges. I would encourage others to take this certification to demonstrate their competence in process simulation using Aspen Plus.

  • Nutrien

    Process Engineer

    This course was my first experience with E-Books – it was great! I was able to download the app on my tablet and open the training materials before class. The E-Books gave me a better learning experience in the classroom than printed training materials. The navigation is easy and I like how interactive it is. I’m looking forward to more training at AspenTech using E-Books.

    First of all, I'm very glad I passed the certification, which shows I have a good foundation in the application of HYSYS software. In terms of the certification examination, the topic design is very scientific, and it can comprehensively assess the student's learning results from the basis of software application. After taking the exam, I did find that I had areas that I lacked knowledge. The assessment I received provided me guidance on my learning goals in the future. Meantime, I have further understanding of the powerful function of Aspen HYSYS software!
