Training For All Industries – Vibration Analysis Certification
Whether you are an engineer or in the field, NorthPoint Training Center offers multifaceted courses to keep you at the top of the game. From Vibration Analysis Certification to Multi-plane Balancing to Electric Motor Reliability you will learn the foundation and fundamentals to ensure your success.
What does Vibration Analysis Certification entail?
Vibration Analysis Certification is broken down into three separate category courses I-III and are recognized by the Engineering Institute of Canada as continuing education units (CEU’s). Each category is completed over a 5-day span including an optional exam on the final day of the course should you choose to go for the Vibration Analysis certification.
Category I – III Vibration Analysis
Generally compliant with the ISO 18436-2 standard for personnel involved in non-destructive testing, condition monitoring and machinery diagnostics, NorthPoint Training Center offers appropriate theoretical and practical hands on knowledge of vibration measurement and analysis.
In Category I you will learn the basics and importance of vibration measurement and analysis including:
- How to operate and care for portable instrumentation
- Take readings from permanently installed instrumentation
- How to input results into a database and download routes from a computer
- Conduct testing under steady state-state operating conditions
- Learn to identify and reject bad data
- Learn to compare overall single vibration measurements against pre-established alert settings
For Category II you must require all the knowledge and skills of Category I and shall be qualified to:
- Select the appropriate vibration measurement technique
- Setup instrumentation for basic resolution or amplitude, frequency and time
- Perform basic vibration analysis of machinery and components
- Maintain a database of results and trends
- Classify, interpret and evaluate the test results
- Recommend minor corrective actions
- Understand basic single plane field balancing concepts
After completing Category III individuals will be qualified to:
- Perform and direct vibrational measurement and analysis
- Select appropriate vibration analysis technique
- Specify vibration hardware and software
- Diagnose single channel spectra, waveforms and orbits
- Establish vibration monitoring programs
- Measure and analyze basic operating deflection shapes
- Understand in the sense of being able to direct the use of alternative technologies
- Recommend field corrective actions
- Operate advanced technologies including demodulation and PeakVue
- Conduct basic single plane balancing
- Report to management program objectives, budgets, cost justification and personnel development
- Prepare reports on machine conditions and recommend corrective action
- Provide instructions and technical direction to vibration trainees
