Intro to Vibration For Operators:
Can be presented as a 4-hour overview class or extended into a full day. The class is beneficial to millwrights, mechanics, engineers, operations staff, management, or someone entering a vibration/condition monitoring role. Case studies are presented. Workbook is provided.
ISO Cat I Vibration Analysis: 4 day class with optional testing & certification:
This class is great for millwrights, mechanics, engineers and anyone who wants to take a deeper dive into vibration; optional testing & certification. This class is structured for a person who may have familiarity with machinery or is coming in from a purely academic background. It is perfect for the new vibration analyst, those who will be collecting data or those who want a better understanding of vibration analysis and its application. We introduce students to the concepts and theories of vibration and movement and progress to basic analysis and a good understanding of the fundamentals. Areas covered include single channel data acquisition, frequency, amplitude, transducers, equipment measurement point set up and vibration faults.
ISO Cat II Vibration Analysis: 5 day class with optional testing & certification:
“Intermediate” course is intended for personnel who have at least twelve months vibration analysis experience and a basic understanding of associated spectrum, time waveform and phase characteristics. Category II certification requires that you have demonstrated 18 months experience in vibration analysis, completed the Category II course and successfully pass the Category II vibration analyst examination, however Category I is not a prerequisite to become certified as a Category II vibration analysts.
ISO Cat III Vibration Analysis: 5 day class with optional testing & certification:
“Advanced” course is intended for personnel who have at least two years vibration analysis experience and a solid understanding of vibration be able to diagnose the widest range of vibration related fault conditions, perform balancing and alignment, and theory and terminology. This course is designed for the senior vibration analyst and program manager who must understand, diagnose, and correct resonance faults. Category III certification requires that you have demonstrated 36 months experience in vibration analysis, completed the Category III course and successfully pass the Category III vibration analyst examination, and are previously certified as a Category II vibration analyst.
Balancing Rotating Equipment 1or 2 day class:
Ideal for millwrights, mechanics, vibration analyst or anyone in condition monitoring. May be conducted hands-on or classroom only. Learn how to recognize unbalance and set up the balance job for a successful balance. We start with the basics, introduce vibration concepts, phase and vectors, and fully explain the balancing process. You will first learn how to perform a single plane balance with vectors. You will learn how to balance a machine using the single-plane and two-plane balance function of your analyzer. Mobius training content with videos, workbooks, and 3D animation.
Precision Shaft Alignment 1 or 2 day class:
One or two day class ideal for millwrights, mechanics, vibration analysts or anyone in condition monitoring. May be conducted hands-on or classroom only. Learn how to recognize the symptoms of misalignment and why it is so important to perform precision alignment. Dial indicator methods will be covered, soft foot detection and correction will be explained, and laser alignment systems will be taught and demonstrated. Hands-on exercises ensure that you leave the course with new skills and the confidence to use them.
Vibration Software Mastery & Analysis Best Practices 1 to 3 day class:
One to three day class for the Vibration Analyst, Emerson/CSI AMS or Pruftechnik Omnitrend Software Mastery. Whether you are a new user or a user that wants to get more efficient at using your software, this class is for you. Topics include setting up and optimizing the database, add/deleting or configuring routes, best practices on data point acquisition. Where to take and how many points of data to take. Best practices in reporting, customize reporting and basis analysis. Other topics included at request; time permitted.
Mobius Institute Asset Reliability Practitioner (ARP)
For engineers, managers or anyone working in the reliability space, we offer the new Mobius Institute Asset Reliability Practitioner (ARP) certification scheme to recognize the knowledge and basic experience of people at three levels; the Advocate who contributes to the initiative, the Reliability Engineer, and the Leader of the program. In addition, the certification scheme will separately recognize reliability engineers and leaders who have proven competence.
CATEGORY I: ADVOCATE: 4 days: This ISO accredited certification may be achieved by following one of two training paths depending on your role in the plant and if your intended outcome of the training and certification program will result in reliability engineering and program management positions.
(TRACK A) PLANT-WIDE AWARENESS: The Asset Reliability Practitioner [ARP] Category I “PLANT-WIDE AWARENESS” course is intended for everyone working within an organization who in any way influence the management, design, engineering, procurement, maintenance, or operation of an organization that involves critical rotating machinery and electrical equipment.
(TRACK B) MANAGER-ENGINEER AWARENESS: The Asset Reliability Practitioner [ARP] Category I “MANAGER- ENGINEER AWARENESS” course is intended for senior management, maintenance and operations/production management, engineers, junior reliability engineers, and condition monitoring professionals who need to understand the “big picture” of the reliability and performance improvement process.
