About the Course

This course takes a new direction in bringing advanced lubricant analysis concepts to reliability professionals. Attendees will comprehensively understand sampling, analysis, reporting, and continuous improvement. Although the course is open to all, it is especially beneficial for ICML certificate holders, covering the MLA III Body of Knowledge.

The course spans approximately four days (36 hours), with adequate breaks provided. It is specifically designed to equip you for the Machine Lubricant Analyst Level III (MLA III) exam, which aligns with ISO 18436-4 standards and is intended for in-plant technicians and engineers responsible for managing lubricant analysis functions. To comply with ISO 18436-4 regulations, MLA II certification is mandatory before enrolling for the MLA III exam.
