Industrial Vibration Analysis Training & Certification

Failure Prevention Associates offers vibration training and certification for Levels 1 and 2. FPA’s vibration certification is for industrial vibration analysis.

Failure Prevention Associates is pleased to announce that its vibration training and our certification complies with the ISO 18436-2 standards.

Students receive certificates for grades of 70% or greater. Major credit cards, Checks, or PO’s from clients are accepted for tuition fees.

Why Attend our Training Courses?

Vibration Analysis is an important tool in an overall predictive maintenance program. Vibration data collected by properly trained analysts can be used to diagnose many types of problems in all types of industrial machinery. Vibration analysis can be used to find both major and minor problems before they result in costly downtime or catastrophic failures.

Industrial Vibration Analysis Training

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for those who want to learn how to perform basic vibration analysis on industrial machinery. FPA’s Vibration Analysis Training will give participants the knowledge and skills to perform vibration data collection, analysis, and reporting. Vibration analysts, mechanical technicians, engineers, & machinery maintenance personnel will benefit tremendously from this course.

Industrial Vibration Analysis Training

Vibration Analyst Certification Exam (CAT 1)

To become a CAT I Vibration Analyst, one needs to take the class, pass the exam, and have at least 6-month experience as a vibration analyst. If you have not fulfilled the 6-month experience, but take the class and pass the exam, you will be given a provisional certificate. You will have one year to complete gaining 6 months of experience. Once you finish your 6 months, please submit evidence of your 6 months of experience, and then you will receive your CAT I Certificate.

Vibration Analyst Certification Exam (CAT 2)

For CAT II Vibration Analyst, one must have at least 18 months of cumulative experience. In order to take the CAT II Training Class, you must have at least 6 months of experience as a vibration analyst and have passed a CAT I Exam. If you do not yet have all the 18 months of experience, but take the class and pass the exam, you will receive a provisional certificate. Once you have finished 18 months of experience, submit your evidence and you will receive your CAT II Certificate.

Vibration Analyst Re-Certification

ISO standards require periodic recertification with either re-examination or renewal every 5 years. The renewal process involves submitting evidence of continued work and study in vibration analysis. The renewal fee is $250.

By viewing the graphs above, you too can find problems in rotating equipment months to years before failure. While it may look complicated, we make it easy to understand.

FPA’s vibration analysis training helps you identify problems like this bearing fault months before failure.
