Course


Entry Level - Cat I Level I

Course ID: Cat I Level 1

This three day course, with an additional 1/2 day for review and the exam, is the ideal starting place for new vibration analysts, people collecting vibration data, and those who want a better understanding of vibration analysis and condition monitoring.

The course exceeds the ISO 18436-2 Category I standard and meets the ASNT Level I Recommended Practice.

The certification exam can be taken after the course.

We also offer a Category I Hands-On Course that lasts 4 full days and includes hands-on practice with data collectors – we will provide the data collector, but you are free to bring your own!

You will come away with a solid understanding of why we monitor the condition of rotating machinery (and other critical assets), the importance of improved reliability, and how the vibration can be successfully measured and analyzed to provide an early warning of a wide range of fault conditions. You won’t come away as an expert; that’s what our more advanced courses are for. But you will know enough to make a valuable contribution to an existing program; be in a position to start a new program; determine if you should implement a program at your site; or better understand the program that exists in your plant.

Duration: 3 DaysInstructor: Tn Hj Hamidon Bin Ali


Intermediate Level - Cat II Level II

Course ID: Cat II Level 2

This four day course, with an additional day for review and the exam, is intended for people who have mastered the basics, but who need to be able to take good data (and decide how the data collector should be set up); analyze a range of fault conditions; and understand balancing and alignment.

The course exceeds the ISO 18436-2 Category II standard and meets the ASNT Level II Recommended Practice.

The certification exam can be taken after the course.

Do you already have an understanding of vibration fundamentals and want to become more confident and accurate in your diagnoses? Then you will enjoy this course!

As a Category II analyst you are expected to know how to test machines correctly, how to diagnose faults accurately (and perform additional tests to verify your diagnosis), how to set vibration alarm limits, and how to correct certain types of faults. Now it is time to understand what those analyzer settings mean so that you can take the best measurements. Now it is time to understand why the vibration patterns change the way they do – and how to use time waveform analysis and phase analysis to verify the fault condition.

We are offering you the opportunity to not only learn these topics, but to truly understand the analyzer and machine so that you feel confident in the decisions you make.

Duration: 4 DaysInstructor: Tn Hj Hamidon Bin Ali



Advance Level - Cat III Level III

Course ID: Cat III Level 3

This four day course, with an additional day for review and the exam, is intended for people who are confident with spectrum analysis but who wish to push on and learn more about signal processing; time waveform and phase analysis; cross-channel testing; machine dynamics; fault correction; and more.

If you wish to truly master vibration analysis and be able to run a successful condition monitoring team, then you are ready for this course.

The course exceeds the ISO 18436-2 Category III standard and meets the ASNT Level III Recommended Practice (for vibration analysis).

The certification exam can be taken after the course. (Note: The ASNT Level III exam can only be administered by the ASNT.)

As a Category III vibration analyst you are expected to be able to diagnose all of the common faults conditions with rolling element bearing machines; have a good understanding of fault conditions associated with sleeve bearing machines; utilize time waveforms, phase readings and enveloping/PeakVuew etc. readings to diagnose faults; and understand all condition monitoring technologies, how and when to apply them, and how to combine technologies to get the best results.

You must also understand machine dynamics (natural frequencies, resonance, etc.); how to perform resonance testing; and how to correct resonance problems. You must also understand balancing, alignment, and isolation. You are also, therefore, required to understand all of the single and cross-channel measurement capabilities of your analyzer.

And finally, you are also expected to be able to set up the program, run a successful program, and mentor the junior analysts.
