The course provides guidance and competency development to take the Machinery Lubrication Engineer – MLE Exam offered through the International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML). The course takes approximately 40 hours to complete and is designed to prepare you to take the certification exam. This is an engineering-level certification targeting reliability and asset management professionals with a strong emphasis in lubrication and lubricant analysis. The certification is ideal for those with daily activities associated with development, implementation, and management of lubrication programs. It is intentionally structured for those with responsibility to guide and facilitate organizations in tactical step towards ISO 55001 certification.
These individuals must demonstrate development, implementation and management skills associated with providing general engineering support to a user lubrication program at a typical industrial plant. This certification emphasizes the individual’s understanding of lubricant selection, lubrication and sampling hardware selection and implementation, overall lubrication program design / machinery design / inspection design, procedure development, key supplier relations, optimizing lubricant PMs, lubricant analysis and troubleshooting, lubrication program metrics, lubrication team management, training, and communications. The individual is likely to be directly involved in the machine lubrication process and reliability such as:
- Manufacturing and industrial engineers
- Maintenance managers
- Predictive maintenance technicians
- Reliability engineers
- Senior level Craftsmen & Millwrights
All who seek to improve reliability programs.
