Vibration Analysis III

As per ISO18436-2, Category 3 

The curriculum is intended to provide sufficient theoretical knowledge to extend the knowledge of someone who has already reached Category 2. 

In addition to the standard vibration tasks outlined above, the theory will support the design of Condition Monitoring programmes including alarm and frequency band configuration. 

The training includes guidance on fault finding and root cause analysis, as well as the application of alternative techniques to complement or confirm results from Vibration Analysis. There will be practical content to support this learning and to help to apply it to real-world situations. Examples and Case Studies will be taken from various machine types relevant to this level.

This course supports certification as a category 3 Vibration Analyst through the BINDT PCN scheme.

Target Group 

  • Technicians and Engineers working in Condition Monitoring, who are involved with project definition and vibration investigations, as well as day to day monitoring and diagnostics

Prerequisites

  • Category 2 and minimum 36 months experience
