Are you ready to get started in vibration analysis and condition monitoring?  Then you will enjoy this course

You will come away with a solid understanding of why we monitor the condition of rotating machinery (and other critical assets), the importance of improved reliability, and how the vibration can be successfully measured and analysed to provide an early warning of a wide range of fault conditions.  You won’t come away as an expert; that’s what our more advanced courses are for.  But you will know enough to make a valuable contribution to an existing program; be in a position to start a new program; determine if you should implement a program at your site; or better understand the program that exists in your plant.


You will come away from the course with a solid understanding of:

The benefits of performing condition monitoring and improving reliability

  1. The condition monitoring technologies: acoustic emission, infra-red analysis (thermography), oil analysis, wear particle analysis, motor testing.

  2. How machines work – via supplementary self-study via the “Equipment Knowledge” section

  3. Why vibration measurements can tell you about the condition of the machine

  4. How to collect good, repeatable measurements

  5. What the Fmax, resolution, averaging and other analyser settings mean

  6. How to Analyse vibration spectra, and the basics of fault diagnosis: unbalance, misalignment, looseness, rolling element bearings faults, resonance, and other conditions

  7. An introduction to setting alarm limits

Who should attend?

If you have been performing vibration analysis for less than one year, or if you have been collecting vibration readings and leaving the analysis to another person, then this course is for you.  This course is also designed for reliability engineers, PdM program managers, and other maintenance staff who would like to understand condition monitoring with a focus on vibration analysis, and take the ISO or ASNT exam.

What is unique about this course?

RMS / Mobius make it 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 RMS 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.  When senior vibration analysts attend our classes they often say “if only I could have learned this way when I got started” – well, now you can!
