Lubrication Training Focus on Everyday Lubrication Tasks

While students will learn some of the basics of lubricants in this course, the main purpose of the training is focused on the best practices of lubrication-related tasks. The learning objectives of this training relate to:

  • Lubricating Machinery
  • Receiving and Inspecting New Lubricants
  • Maintaining Lube Rooms
  • Sampling Lubricants
  • Filtration and Contamination Control
  • Inspecting Lubricants and Machines

Designed to Impact Performance

This course has been developed following a systematic approach which identified the learning needs for lubrication professionals. We met with industry experts and plant reliability professionals to determine the specific skills needed to perform lubrication tasks. These needs were analyzed to guide the development of the instructional materials and methodologies used during this course.

This course has been designed to create a learning environment which supports adult learning principles to maximize the transfer of the course knowledge to the student. Specific features include interactive exercises, case studies, and hands on examples as well as class discussions conducted through a facilitative approach.

Unlike Noria’s Certification Series training courses, this training is designed for those who have little technical background and need training on lubrication and filtration tasks. Students will learn why proper lubrication is important and how to protect machinery through contamination control. The training is very interactive and includes student participation.
