The purpose of this course is to deliver foundational skills and knowledge to operators and lubrication technicians through a hands-on learning experience that will achieve greater understanding and retention and therefore more effective in performing required lubrication tasks.
The course provides a 50/50 mix of classroom instruction and hands-on practical application of the instructional material over a 1-3 day period. The approach will be to introduce a concept or practice followed by a practical demonstration by the instructor, which is then followed by student practice and demonstration of mastery of the concept or practice.
During the last 15 years of delivering ‘Best Practices…” and “ICML MLT Certification” training courses we have received generous feedback that the MLA/MLT level 1 course was too advanced for many of our customer’s lubrication technicians, followed with requests for a more basic, “Hands On” practical instruction class. This course is intended to deliver that foundational ‘best practice’ practical instruction, with the purpose of equipping operators and lube techs with the necessary skills and knowledge to properly fulfill their required tasks. This course will establish a strong foundation that plant personnel will have for further knowledge and skills development, leading to the ICML certification series.
The length of training can be anywhere from 1-3 days for up to 16 students per day. Given the ‘hands on’ nature, the hosting site will be asked to assemble several specific items for demonstration in a convenient, useful instructional environment. The instructor would arrive at the location at least a day in advance to review the setup, and make adjustments to prepare for practical demonstration activities.
