Vibration Analysis

Accredited ISO 18436 Category I- IV

Mobius courses are unique in the world of vibration analysis training. To make theory easier to understand we use 3D animations and software simulations. The animations take you inside the machine and show you why failures occur and how the vibration changes as the condition worsens. Mobius Institute software simulators provide another level of understanding; they give you the ability to adjust the type and severity of a machine fault and visually see the relationship of the fault and the corresponding vibration signal. In addition, we have interactive case histories with actual vibration data that can be fed into your instruments and software so you can hone your diagnostic skills. Our courses blend the important theoretical concepts with practical techniques to ensure that the trained analysts can put their knowledge to work with confidence. 

 

BASIC: ISO Category I Vibration Analyst

The ISO Category I Vibration Analyst "Basic" course is intended for personnel who are new to vibration monitoring and analysis, or those who wish to get an introduction to vibration analysis, condition monitoring and maintenance practices. The course focuses on periodic, single channel data collection and analysis for condition-based maintenance programs. Category I certification requires that you have demonstrated 6 months experience in vibration analysis, completed the course and successfully pass the Category I vibration analyst examination.

 

INTERMEDIATE: ISO Category II Vibration Analyst

The ISO Category II Vibration Analyst "Intermediate" course is intended for personnel who have at least twelve months vibration analysis experience and a basic understanding of vibration theory and terminology. The course provides an in-depth study of machinery faults and their 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.

 

ADVANCED: ISO Category III Vibration Analyst

The ISO Category III Vibration Analyst "Advanced" course is intended for personnel who have at least two years vibration analysis experience and a solid understanding of vibration theory and terminology This course is designed for the senior vibration analyst and program manager who must be able to diagnose the widest range of vibration related fault conditions, perform balancing and alignment, and 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.

 

Vibration ISO CAT IV Hybrid

You are qualified to lead condition monitoring teams and will have a deep understanding of machine dynamics and failure modes. With your knowledge and qualifications, you are able to design tests to solve difficult problems and identify underlying issues to prevent reoccurrence. There are no rotating machines problems too difficult to solve. You will carry the highest regard in the field of machine condition monitoring. But be warned; everyone will be seeking your assessment of their machine problems!
