Level 1 Vibration Analysis

Level 1 Vibration Analysis – Online Course

 $2,900 AUD (EX GST)

Course Overview

The Levele 1 Vibration Analysis course is the ideal starting place for new vibration analysts, people collecting vibration data, and those who want a better understanding of vibration analysis and condition monitoring. If you are ready to get started in vibration analysis and condition monitoring, this course is for you. 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 vibration can be successfully measured and analyzed 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.

Why Choose Distance Learning?

Mobius makes learning about vibration analysis unique. Mobius use 3D animations, simulations, and numerous software simulators that completely demystify vibration analysis. While vibration training courses have traditionally been very theoretical, difficult to understand, you will be captivated by the Mobius 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.

You will come away from the course with a solid understanding of:
•  The benefits of performing condition monitoring and improving reliability
•  The condition monitoring technologies: acoustic emission, infrared analysis (thermography), oil
analysis, wear particle analysis, motor testing
•  How machines work – via supplementary self-study using the “Equipment Knowledge” section
•  How vibration measurements can tell you about the condition of the machine
•  How to collect good, repeatable measurements
•  What the Fmax, resolution, averaging and other analyser settings mean
•  How to analyse vibration spectra, and the basics of fault diagnosis: unbalance, misalignment, looseness, rolling element bearings faults, resonance, and other conditions
•  An introduction to setting alarm limits
