The Vibration institute vibration analysis certification program is the benchmark and recognized as one of the highest standards of industry knowledge and competence among professionals in the field. In an increasingly competitive market place, employers and clients seek the most qualified and knowledgeable professionals.

Vibration institute analysis certification programs was accredited by the American National Standards Institute in March 2010. ANSI is the premier organization that coordinates the implementation of national and international standards.

Accreditation by ANSI ensures that the institute’s vibration analysis certification program and process is fair, consistent and maintains the highest standards to assess the qualification of professional in a non-subjective manner. For certified vibration analysis, it ensures technical competence and a measurement for advancing careers. For employers, certification validates employees’ skills and knowledge that ultimately result in better service, support and customer satisfaction grounded in safe and effective practices.

There are four-category vibration analysis certification program offered by vibration institute that adheres to ISO 18436-2 and is enhanced by a job-task analysis conducted by the vibration institute certification committee.

Category 1 Vibration Analysis are qualified to perform a range of single channel machinery vibration condition monitoring and diagnostics activities including dataacquisition on predetermined routes, machine steady state testing to predefined procedures.
