Vibration Analysis BINDT Category I

This course is an introductory level into vibration analysis and will enable the candidate to establish competency in the fundamental key skills and understanding of monitoring plant and process equipment.

The course is ideal for plant personnel such as reliability engineers, technicians, maintenance supervisors, rotating machinery engineers, predictive maintenance coordinators and any personnel that work in industries where rotating and reciprocating machinery is employed.

This course is based on the ISO 18436-2 certification program vibration analyst category 1 syllabus and is designed to prepare staff for the BINDT PCN VA Cat 1 Certification Exam. The course is accredited by BINDT PCN to CM GEN App D.

Course assessment

The candidate will undergo a series of formative assessments throughout the duration of the course to ensure learning has taken place. Towards the end of the course there are two internal summative assessments in the form of a practical and written exam. Candidates will be expected to achieve a 70% overall score in order to pass the course.

The BINDT certification exam can be taken immediately after successful completion of the course, but the certification can only be awarded after the attendee has logged 6 months’ relevant vibration analysis experience.

Course objectives

  • Basic principles of vibration and recognise the different units of measurement.
  • Collect reliable data ensuring appropriate standards of repeatability.
  • Be able to identify errors in collected data.
  • Retrieve pre-defined measurement settings for use with VA equipment and transfer data from an analysis system to a computer-based system.
  • Compare overall or single-value vibration measurements against pre-established alert settings.
  • Identify deviations from the norm for single-value vibration values and trends.
  • Report on visual observations of equipment condition.

Course content

  • Principles of Vibration
  • Data Acquisition
  • Signal Processing
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Fault Analysis
  • Corrective Action
  • Equipment Knowledge
  • Acceptance Testing

Course benefits

Candidates who complete the Vibration Analysis Category 1 course will have have evidence of training to VA1 in accordance with ISO 18436-2 and BINDT PCN CM Gen App D.

Candidates will get a good understanding about the basic range of VA techniques and single channel instrumentation, the ability to recognise the vibration characteristics produced by basic machine faults, and gain awareness of key International Standards covering vibration condition monitoring.
