This Course is ideal for individuals and technicians to work effectively in vibration diagnosis and predictive maintenance programs
This five day course, with an additional day for review and the Certification Exam, is the ideal place for people who has entered into vibration measurement of rotating equipment and has gained little experience in collecting vibration data and analysis, and those who want to grow in vibration based predictive maintenance.
This course is in accordance with ISO 18436-2 Requirements for Certification. Individuals certified to Category II are qualified personnel who are certified to perform industrial machinery vibration measurements and basic vibration analysis using single-channel measurements, with or without phase trigger signals, according to established and recognized procedures. Personnel certified to Category II require all the knowledge and skills expected of Category I, and shall also be qualified
1. Principles of vibration
2. Data acquisition
3. Signal processing
4. Condition monitoring
5. Fault analysis
6. Corrective action
7. Equipment knowledge
8. Acceptance testing
9. Equipment testing and diagnostics
10. Reference standards
11. Reporting and documentation
12. Fault severity determination
Roy is a passionate Vibration Analyst with a proven track of field experience as well as successful history as a training instructor in rotating asset reliability and maintenance focusing on Machinery Vibration Analysis & Machinery Lubrication-Oil Analysis. Roy holds both CMVA and Vibration Institute CAT III certifications as well as a B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering and other professional designations such as CMRP, MLT II & MLA II. Enjoying 35 years of work experience, Roy shares all of his valuable learnings with class attendees. This is one of the key values of his success in training courses.
The certification exam will be held on the next day of the course completion provided by Canadian Machinery Vibration Association (CMVA). The exam is based on ISO 18436-2 requirements.

There is often an assumption that components, lubricants and the machines themselves are in perfect condition when they are purchased. Sadly, this is not always the case. Bearings may not be transported or stored correctly and may suffer from false-brinelling. Lubricants may not meet cleanliness standards.Rotating machinery may suffer from resonance and other conditions when operated under normal conditions. Too often rotating machinery are not designed with energy efficiency and reliability in mind; instead they are designed with purchase cost in mind.
Acceptance testing provides a way to test that machines and components are in good condition before they are installed in the plant. Acceptance testing puts pressure on the supplier to make sure they are delivering the highest quality products. Acceptance testing guidelines can include specifications on several parameters, but from the vibration analyst’s perspective the key standard is to set vibration limits that may not be exceeded. Tests may be performed at the OEMs workshop or after being installed on-site. It is important the conditions for the test are clearly specified, including RPM, load, and mounting. Acceptance testing should not only be performed on new equipment, it should be performed when repair and overhaul work is performed. This can include motor rewinds, rotor balancing, and pump or compressor rebuilds.
Any abnormal noise, vibration, temperature, pressure and current draw are indication of a problem or defect in machine components. If left unattended, the defect can progress to a failure and costly repairs. On-site mechanical inspection and hands on examination is a significant part of any machinery diagnosis. Vibration analyst collects vibration data as well as other parameters and performs analysis for detecting defect(s) followed by corrective actions.
Unbalance, misalignment, incorrect belt tension, poor lubrication practices, incorrect machine operation, and resonance are common root causes of failures in rotating machinery, however many others exist. Whenever the vibration analyst detects a fault in the machine, he or she should always attempt to determine the root cause. Once the root cause is identified measures should be taken so that root cause is eliminated. It is clever to be able to detect a bearingdefect, but it is not very clever if the same bearing exhibits the same fault condition just months later. The vibration analyst will need to determine the most appropriate action that he or she can take at their place of work to avoid a repeat of the fault.
structure. Likewise shaft alignment reduces the stress on bearings, couplings, and the shaft itself. For smooth & safe operation of any rotating equipment, it is recommended to check vibrations and perform balancing & alignment, particularly when they are new installed machines or newly repaired or overhauled.

Resonance occurs when a machine generates vibration at a frequency close to a natural frequency of
the rotor or structure. Resonance greatly amplifies the vibration amplitude; the high vibration
amplitude reduces the life of the bearings and the machine structure. The vibration analyst can get
