About ISO 18436-3

The Vibration Institute Training Program follows the International Standards Organization standard, ISO 18436:3, which defines the requirements for bodies operating training programs in the non-intrusive machine condition monitoring, diagnostic and correction technologies.

The Vibration Institute offers training examinations on course content on the final afternoon of the class to help participants assess their knowledge and understanding of the course materials in an effort to pass the certification examinations. Participants are given a score and a performance evaluation on the training examination immediately upon completion. This information is intended to serve as an indicator of each participant’s technical strengths and weaknesses, and as a partial preparation for the optional certification examination given the next morning.
