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-III course covers four days, with an additional day for review and the exam, is intended for people who are confident with spectrum analysis but who wish to push on and learn more about signal processing, time waveform and phase analysis, cross-channel testing, machine dynamics, and fault correction. If you wish to truly advance in vibration analysis and be able to run a successful condition monitoring team, then you are ready for this course. The course exceeds the ISO 18436-2 Category III standard and meets the ASNT Level III Recommended Practice.
You will learn to diagnose all of the common faults conditions with rolling element and sleeve bearing machines, by utilizing time waveforms, phase readings and other techniques to diagnose faults. You will also learn machine dynamics (natural frequencies, resonance, etc.) and how to perform resonance testing and correct resonance problems. The course also covers single and cross-channel measurement capabilities of your analyzer. And after completing the CAT-III course, you will be able to set and run a successful vibration program, and mentor the junior analysts.
Mobius vibration analysis training is 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 leave the course with a solid understanding of:
