Category II Vibration Analysts are qualified to perform basic vibration analysis using single-channel instruments according to established procedures, set-up instruments, and maintain a database of results. Minimum Experience Required : 3 years Minimum Training Hours: 38 hours 

This course prepares attendees to perform basic machinery vibration analysis on industrial machinery using single-channel measurements, with or without triggers signals, according to established and recognized procedures. It covers basics of sensors, database and data collector setup, data collection, signal processing, fault analysis, and basics of single plane balancing. It is partial preparation for the Vibration Analyst Category II Certification Exam. The workshops and demonstrations, scheduled throughout the training course, are used to illustrate theory and applications.
