This 4-day course complies with Category II Vibration Analyst per ISO standard 18436-2: Vibration condition monitoring and diagnostics. Category II vibration analysts are expected to be able to select appropriate vibration measurement techniques, set up instruments for basic resolution of amplitude, frequency, and time, perform basic spectrum analysis, maintain a database of results and trends, perform single-channel impact tests, classify, interpret, and evaluate test results in accordance with applicable specifications and standards, recommend minor corrective actions, and understand basic single plane field balancing concepts. This course also features the use of the CSI 2130/2140 Machinery Analyzer in conjunction with advanced machinery analysis techniques. Discussions of case histories on machinery faults are one of the focal points of this course.  Students will receive a complimentary copy of the Simplified Handbook of Vibration Analysis, Volume I, by Art Crawford.
