Course Summary

Lubricant Analysis Category 2 aims to equip candidates with the skills and knowledge required to establish, implement and manage a lubrication programme, by having a good understanding of lubrication best practices and the specialised testing required for specific lubricants.

The course is ideal if you are responsible for making informed lubrication decisions at your organisation. As well as covering the fundamentals, candidates will learn advanced diagnostic and troubleshooting techniques, the contamination effects on machinery, the integration of lubrication with other CBM technologies, and much more.

This course is based on the ISO 18436-4 certification program for lubricant analysis category 2. The course runs over four days with an additional half day for review and optional BINDT PCN certification exam.
