SDT’s Live In-Person ISO CAT I Vibration Analysis Certification

CAT 1 Vibration Analysis Certification Course

A Statement about SDT’s Training Approach

One of the core missions of SDT Ultrasound Solutions is delivering high-quality, research-based condition monitoring training that creates confident, competent, and safe reliability practitioners. We accomplish this by carefully considering your training needs and the unique challenges you may face at your facility and incorporating solutions into our training.

We know there are difficulties adults encounter when tasked with adding new technologies and skills to their skillset, and we’ve geared our course material for the way that adults learn. SDT Ultrasound Solutions’ inspectors bring experiences and self-awareness when they teach, approaching education from three specific domains.

Cognitive Knowledge

This domain refers to the body of knowledge around any particular subject. Think of it as theoretical and foundational information. It’s the “stuff” you need to guide you when it comes time to apply your newly learned skills.

Affective Knowledge

This domain challenges your current belief structure. It produces alignments between the way you may have done things previously, and how you may do things differently with your newly learned skills.

Practical Knowledge

This domain prepares you to make a difference; to challenge the status quo, and hopefully change the world. It focuses your learning development on implementation, execution, work in teams, and creating measurable outcomes.

CAT 1 Vibration Analysis Certification Basis

The performance objectives outlined below define what an individual certified as Category 1 Vibration Analysis should be able to perform. These performance objectives are based on the ISO Standard 18436-2:2014(E) and were prepared by members of the CMVA’s Training and Certification Committee.

Most of the focus for each learning objective category is outlined in the description, including vocabulary. The indicated percentages are roughly from the ISO standard, and they are in relation to the number of hours spent on each topic over the 30-hour course.

Course Performance Objectives & Examination Breakdown

Any analyst who has mastered the performance objectives defined in the following section should be able to pass the associated test. In most cases, the percentage of study time allocated to each topic is the same for the percentage of exam questions on those topics.
