Intermediate Applied Vibration Analysis - ISO Category II

February 5-9, 2018 • Pioneer Engineering - Fort Collins, CO

April 30-May 4, 2018 • McNeese University - Lake Charles, LA 

September 10-14, 2018 • Pioneer Engineering - Fort Collins, CO

In our Intermediate Applied Vibration Analysis course, students will learn how to specify basic FFT parameters, establish initial alarm set points, and perform fundamental signature and phase analysis. This class is intended for maintenance technicians and engineers who want an intermediate course in vibration analysis.

A minimum of a secondary education diploma or equivalent is recommended.

The course follows Category II Guidelines established by ISO 18436-2, “Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machine – Requirements for training and certification of personnel – Part 2: Vibration condition monitoring and diagnostics.”

Intermediate Vibration Analysis Course Objectives:

  • Select the appropriate machinery vibration measurement technique
  • Maintain a database of results and trends
  • Establish and implement general overall level alarms
  • Set up instruments for the basic resolution of amplitude, frequency and time
  • Perform basic vibration analysis of machinery and components, such as shafts, bearings, gears, fans, pumps and motors, using spectrum analysis
  • Classify, interpret and evaluate the test results in accordance with applicable specifications and standards
  • Understand basic single plane balancing concepts
  • Be aware of some causes and effects of bad measurement data
  • Perform basic bump tests to determine natural frequencies
  • Recommend minor corrective action

Optional Category ll- ISO Certification Exams

ISO Accredited Certification through the Vibration Institute requires 68 hours of formal training or independent study, 18 months experience and the examination. The ISO Category ll exam is an additional $300 and administered the morning after the last day of class. Please note the ISO exam application and approval from the Vibration Institute must be completed 20 days prior to the exam date.
