About the course:

This course will advance the lubrication knowledge of Maintenance & Reliability Technicians
Based on the International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML) Body of Knowledge, This hands-on course is designed to give you not just the theory but practical tools you can use to help transform your lubrication program.
The course is instructed by a knowledgeable and highly experienced Lubrication specialist who knows plants lubrication problems. After the course completion, trainees will be able to optimize lubrication PMs, select proper lubricants (oil and grease), implement good lubrication practice, improve maintenance costs and increase uptime (MTBF). Attendees learn how to:
  • identify, prevent, and remediate lubricant contamination.
  • manage, and utilize a world-class lubricant storage, handling, and dispensing system.
  • take oil sample properly and interpret oil analysis results.
  • modify equipment for lubrication, inspection, oil analysis, and contamination control.
  • identify gaps in lubrication program and create a game plan for success.
