ISO 18436 CAT-II

Intermediate Vibration Analyst

1 alternative location(s) available

Course Overview

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 additonal 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.
