Public Courses and Online Training
Learn vibration analysis from the world’s leading provider of training & certification. At Mobius Institute, we offer the most understandable and interesting training available. Our Crystal Clear™ training methodology is unique; using hundreds of 3D animations and software simulations that make complex concepts easier to understand. We offer ISO 18436 Category I to IV training via public venue courses as well as online through the Mobius Institute website.
Mobius Institute is ISO/IEC 17024 and ISO 18436-1 accredited, meaning that you are assured that your certification meets the highest global standards, and our training teaches you everything you need to know according to the ISO 18436 standard for vibration analyst training. There is no more highly regarded training & certification available.
The Category-II course spans four days with an additional half day for review and the exam. It is intended for people who have mastered the basics but who need to be able to take good data (and decide how the data collector should be set up), analyze a range of fault conditions, and understand balancing and alignment.
We teach you to test machines correctly, how to diagnose faults accurately, perform additional diagnostic tests for verification, how to set vibration alarm limits, and how to correct certain types of faults. You will learn what your analyzer settings mean so that you can take the best measurements. And you will learn why the vibration signatures change the way they do and how to use time waveform analysis and phase analysis to verify the fault condition.
Mobius makes learning about vibration analysis unique. We use 3D animations, Flash simulations, and numerous software simulators that completely demystify vibration analysis. While vibration training courses have traditionally been very theoretical, difficult to understand, (and boring), you will be captivated by the Mobius training methods, and you will enjoy our practical approach. You will take away skills that you can immediately apply to your job, and you will truly understand what you are doing.
You will come away from the course with a solid understanding of:
