Course Overview

The Vibration Analysis Level 2 course is intended for personnel who have at least 12 months vibration analysis experience, and who need to be able to take good data (and decide how the data collector should be set up); analyse a range of fault conditions; and understand balancing and alignment.

Who Should Apply

Anyone who wants to be capable of confidently diagnosing a wide range of fault conditions, correcting certain conditions, and taking accurate measurements, needs to take this course.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of six months experience performing vibration analysis and a good understanding of the fundamentals. Level 1 Vibration Analysis training is highly recommended. Note that 18 months experience is required in order to become certified.

Course Tuition

Course tuition includes: all course presentations and reference materials and an informal exam. The Certification Exam incurs an additional cost.

The training course strictly follows ISO 18436-2 and 18436-3. The optional Certification Exam is provided by Mobius Institute Board of Certification, which is ISO/IEC 17024 accredited in accordance with ISO 18436-1 and ISO 18436-2. Students who meet the experience requirements, complete the course and pass the examination will become certified according to ISO 18436-1 and ISO 18436-2, providing the highest recognised certification available anywhere.

You will come away from this course with a solid understanding of:

  • Well designed program and the reliability centered maintenance approach (with precision balancing, alignment, lubrication and resonance control) will improve the OEE and therefore the bottom line.
  • Condition Monitoring Technologies: acoustic emission, infrared thermography, oil analysis, wear debris analysis, electric motor testing.
  • How machines work – via supplementary self study using the ”Equipment Knowledge” section.
  • Select the correct measurement location and axis, and collect good, repeatable measurements.
  • What the Fmax, resolution, averaging and other analyser setting mean, and how to select the optimum settings for a wide variety of machine types.
  • Analyse vibration spectra, time waveforms, envelope and phase measurements.
  • Diagnose a range of fault conditions: unbalance, eccentricity, misalignment, bent shaft, cocked bearings, looseness, rolling element bearings faults, journal bearing faults, gearbox faults, resonance, and other conditions.
  • How to set alarm limits manually and with statistics.
  • How to balance and align a machine, and correct a resonance condition.

Course Content

Basic vibration theory is presented to give each student an understanding of vibration as it relates to machine condition, along with hands-on demonstration and class exercises designed to show proper data collection techniques. Measurement pitfalls are discussed, along with their adverse effect on machine problem diagnosis, and how they are critical to evaluating the severity of problems detected.
