The Vibration Analyst Program follows ISO/FDIS 18436-2 (Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics of Machines - Requirements for Training and Certification of Personnel) which ensures international recognition and standardization of technical qualifications.
The Vibration Institute, U.S.A. is a non-profit corporation that was formally founded in 1973 to allow individuals from any industry to share information about measuring and analysing vibration. The Committee members include practicing vibration analysts active in a broad spectrum of industries - machine tool, pulp, paper and printing, petrochemical, power and consulting. Motivations for the establishment of the program were personal, client and corporate recognition and recognition of levels of expertise. The consensus of the committee was that certification would add credence to the vibration profession.
To meet the objectives set by the Committee, the Vibration Institute's Vibration Analyst program has been designed to adhere strictly to the following ISO standards :-
ISO 18436-1:2004 - defines the requirements for bodies operating certification systems for personnel who perform machinery condition monitoring, identify machine faults, and recommend corrective action. Procedures for the certification of condition monitoring and diagnostic personnel are specified
ISO 18436-2:2003 - specifies the general requirements for vibration analysis personnel who perform machinery condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines. Certification to this standard will provide recognition of the qualifications and competence of individuals to perform machinery vibration measurements and analysis using portable and permanently installed sensors and equipment.
ISO/IEC 17024:2003 - specifies requirements for a body certifying persons against specific requirements, including the development and maintenance of a certification scheme for personnel
