Noria Machinery Lubrication I & Oil Analysis II Training Course
October 13-15
Orlando, FL

Machinery Lubrication I (MLI) provides the foundational skillset for applying best lubrication practices and product knowledge. Through MLI, students can move away from the “old school” methods of vague, non-specific lubrication procedures and implement an excellent lubrication program in any industrial workplace. MLI students gain much more than pointers on lubricating a machine – they learn proven industry methods for selecting, storing, filtering and testing lubricants to boost reliability and generate lasting results in machine efficiency/maintenance. They also gain better understanding of oil analysis, so they can align their efforts with those of maintenance professionals or oil analysis experts.

Maintenance professionals in Oil Analysis II will gain everything they need to properly sample, monitor health and detect additive, thermal and particle factors that degrade lubricants via on-site tests and lab analysis. They will review case studies, read and interpret oil analysis reports and participate in group problem-solving exercises. OA II aligns with ICML Machine Lubricant Analyst level II Certification requirements.
