BINDT Accredited vibration analysis training from SKF

Setting the world standard for reliability instruction

Is your vibration analysis world-class?

No matter how methodically your team collects and analyses vibration data, if your methods do not conform to international standards, then you are not doing all you can to optimise plant performance. In today’s increasingly competitive, global business environment, ISO standards are rightly recognised as de facto standards for quality. The companies that employ them are increasing their competitive edge, both in perception, and in reality.
Making sure your team is collecting and analysing data according to ISO standards will help ensure your condition monitoring pays multiple dividends. SKF can help make it happen.

SKF – the world’s first global company to develop ISO 18436 vibration analysis courses

SKF is a global Accredited Training Organisation (ATO), registered with the British Institute of Non Destructive Testing (BINDT) as per ISO 18436 requirements, which covers training related to condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines.

BINDT is an accredited certifying body in accordance with ISO/IEC 17024 offering personnel certification against criteria set out in international and European standards through the Personal Certification in Non Destructive Testing (PCN) Certification Scheme. BINDT has developed a programme for the certification of competence of personnel engaged in various condition monitoring disciplines in accordance with ISO 18436-1, including vibration analysis as specified in ISO 18436-2.
