3 – DAY PRACTICAL OIL ANALYSIS TRAINING
Unlike other 3-day lubrication training courses, which focus strictly on the theory and chemistry of lubrication, we offer insight in to practical oil analysis solutions and advice that teach you how to read an oil analysis reports and how to establish an oil analysis program. This course is built around the body of knowledge for the ICML-MLA certification, this training course is ideal for anyone who wants an in-depth understanding of what it takes to achieve precision lubrication.

DAY for CERTIFICATION EXAM
The International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML) is a vendor-neutral, not-for-profit organization founded to facilitate growth and development of machine lubrication as a technical field of endeavor. Among its various activities, ICML offers skill certification testing for individuals in the fields of machine condition monitoring, lubrication and oil analysis.
ICML is an independently chartered organization consisting of both paid professional staff members and volunteer councils. ICML currently provides certification for the Machine Lubricant Analyst (MLA), Machine Lubrication Technician (MLT) and Laboratory Lubricant Analyst (LLA). ICML is honored that these ICML certifications have been pioneered into ISO 18436-4 and 18436-5 Standards. ICML also regarded the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) guidelines in the development of its certification programs.
