Getting Your MLT I or MLA I Certification
Training with Noria can help you prepare for your certification exam, but all students who want to get certified need to apply in advance with the International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML) to take the exam. The ICML offers certification exams online and at all public Noria training events.
Our ML I course is fully aligned with the body of knowledge of the ICML’s MLT I and MLA I certifications. This course also provides Oil Analysis I (OAI) training.

When you complete a Noria certification course, we guarantee you will pass the associated ICML exam — or get free resources and ongoing support from Noria experts until you do.
