Find the right course for you!
Students who successfully complete the advanced applied vibration analysis course will be able to compute statistical alarms, interpret Lissajous Orbits, and apply advanced FFT techniques (i.e. Synchronous Time Averaging, Order Tracking and Demodulation) and time domain analysis on a variety of machine assemblies. This class is intended for maintenance technicians and engineers who want an advanced course in vibration analysis.
Follows Category III Guidelines Established by ISO 18436-2, “Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machine – Requirements for training and certification of personnel – Part 2: Vibration condition monitoring and diagnostics”
Prerequisites: Two years or more training in mechanical technology or mechanical engineering at an accredited college, university or technical school is strongly recommended. Candidates should be able to manipulate simple algebraic equations, use a basic scientific calculator, and be familiar with the operation of personal computers.
Advanced Applied Vibration Analysis Course Objectives:
Optional Category lll- ISO Certification Exams
ISO Accredited Certification through the Vibration Institute requires a total of 110 hours of formal training or independent study, Category II Certification, 36 months experience, and examination. The ISO Category lll exam is an additional $450 and administered the following morning after the last day of class. Please note the ISO exam application and approval from the Vibration Institute must be completed 20 days prior to the exam date.
*Also it is strongly recommended for the student to attend a Dynamic Balancing class just prior to taking Vibration Institute ISO Category lll exam.
The training was really informative. It was great to have up-to-date training documents that have real life examples of issues discovered and resolved through vibration analysis. I have seen in the past that some of the text books on vibration analysis are pretty dated (copy right of 1999 for example). Also it was nice to see example of the things we were learning in class in action in the lab. Chad was also a great instructor, very informative and willing to help you understand the material. One thing that would be nice is to have the power point presentation follow more closely with the text book. There was a good bit of hoping around between the text and presentation.
