Vibration Institute Chapters

The Vibration Institute chapters are comprised of a diverse group of committed individuals representing virtually every industry and discipline in the evaluation of machinery behavior and condition.

Our chapters are crucial to our mission. Each chapter exchanges information on evaluating machinery behavior and upholds the highest professional standards through training and certification. Chapters offer continuing education and networking opportunities for local, regional members in order to prepare both new and continuing analysts for careers marked by leadership, ingenuity and success.

Whether you have recently begun your study of vibration analysis or have been practicing in the profession for years, the Vibration Institute is a globally-trusted institution dedicated to cultivating your skills. Our knowledge and expertise is backed by a uniquely diverse educational background and combined decades of experience in the field. If you or your organization wants to improve expertise through a network of invaluable resources and professionals, the Vibration Institute is the best place to grow these assets in lifelong learning. Visit our Membership page for more information, or contact one of our Chapter chairs.

Vibration Institute chapters also participate in a program where they receive an annual rebate of $5 per Vibration Institute member. Members are eligible to participate in as many chapters and events as they want but can only be affiliated with one chapter annually for the rebate program. In order to make sure your chapter receives the full financial benefit through the rebate program please notify the Vibration Institute of your chapter affiliation on an annual basis.
