Condition Monitoring Training Courses
Machinery undergoes different states and enters various conditions when functioning. Sometimes, there is an increase in temperature; yet other times, there is movement as against being static in an idle state. The process of condition monitoring is to keep an eye or inspect these different states and conditions of machinery to determine if it is working optimally or not. Hence, a condition monitoring training course will help an engineer or any other technical professional observe and understand the various conditions of machinery when it is working.
What is the purpose of condition monitoring? What does a condition monitoring training course teach? Condition monitoring is a significant part of the predictive maintenance of machinery. By predictive maintenance is meant the determination of how long a specific tool will last. Such predictions enable the professionals to take steps to maintain the machinery, so it lasts that long. A condition monitoring training course equips the learner to identify areas where the machine, tool or equipment needs servicing or repairs. Thereby, the professional can increase its lifespan.
At the Reliability Institute, we teach vibration analysis at different levels as part of condition monitoring training. We have the Vibration Analysis program in different categories – VCAT I, VCAT II and VCAT III. These correspond to Vibration Analysis Category I for Junior Analysts, Category II for Intermediate Analysts and Category III for Senior Analysts. Broadly speaking, these courses teach students to collect, validate and analyse vibration data. This analysis becomes more in-depth at higher categories. Diagnosis of the data collected is also taught at senior levels.
As part of a condition monitoring training course, our Vibration Analysis programs at various categories are prepared by the Mobius Institute and are accredited to international standards ISO 18436 and these courses are offered online.
