    • PD hours: 38
    The fee includes a printed manual, on-line invigilated exam & 5 year's certification.
    • $3,990.00 excl. GST


Learn to be an effective vibration analyst - capable of diagnosing a wide range of faults, conducting special tests, and performing precision aligning and balancing.

 In this course you will:
• Increase your knowledge on maintenance practices, condition monitoring, and the common condition monitoring technologies
• Increase your knowledge about data collection, testing
techniques, sensor types, etc.
• Learn a great deal about signal processing and the settings of your vibration analyzer
• Increase your knowledge of spectrum analysis, time waveform analysis, and phase analysis
• Understand why phase analysis and time waveform analysis are both critical tools used by the vibration analyst
• Learn about common failure modes and how to detect them, including unbalance, misalignment, looseness, resonance, pump/fan/compressor vane, and flow issues, cavitation, turbulence, gearbox failures, rolling
element bearing failure, and more
• Learn about high-frequency bearing and gear fault detection techniques: demodulation, enveloping, SPM, HD, shock pulse, PeakVue, Spike Energy, and others
• Be able to use spectra, phase readings, time waveforms, bump and impact tests, to test for looseness, resonance, and other conditions
• Learn about precision shaft alignment and soft foot correction
• Learn about single and two-plane balancing
• Learn the basics of setting alarm limits: band alarms and mask/envelope alarms.
The key is that with the VCAT-II course, you will transition from being a person who is primarily capable of collecting data to a person who can diagnose faults on critical machinery, and in some cases, prevent or
correct them.

With this video-based course, your learning occurs independently, which allows you to participate in the training at your speed and your convenience

Exam Information: Optional certification examination is available after course completion, offered via an Invigilated Exam Process.
