On-site, Informal Vibration Analysis Training

Sit down with Alan, one on one or in a small group to get all of your vibration analysis questions answered. Informal training can be tailored to your specific needs, whether it is related to verifying that your database is set up correctly or checking your test points or alarm settings, Alan can help. Alan will assess your needs and your current level of understanding and he will work with you to teach you what you need to know to be successful.

Program Audits

Informal on-site vibration analysis training is typically conducted as part of a vibration program audit. If you want to know the current status of your vibration monitoring program and learn how to make it more profitable, Alan can help. You can download a sample agenda for a program audit here. In Alan’s book  he describes 10 Components of a successful condition monitoring program. He’ll take you through these 10 components to help you understand the status of your program and what you can do to improve it. 

Awareness Training

Condition Based Maintenance is not just about vibration analysis technology, it is about changing how the plant makes decisions. Just because you are good at collecting readings and interpreting graphs does not mean that you are getting the most from your program. It is essential to ensure that processes and procedures are in place and that you get buy-in for your program from those above and below you in the organization.

Awareness training aims to involve people outside of your group to help them understand the benefits of what you are doing and to gain their support. Awareness training may be conducted for plant floor personnel or for upper management or both. This training can also be tailored to the specific needs of your plant.
