Condition monitoring technology is advancing so fast that ongoing training for staff working in the machinery maintenance arena is essential in order to stay abreast of current trends. So says WearCheck’s technical manager, Steven Lumley, who plays an instrumental role in developing the company’s training schedule as well as ensuring that all courses are compliant with lockdown regulations. 

Upskilling the maintenance workforce brings rewards

“We have found that customers who invest in upskilling their staff definitely gain a higher return on investment in their condition monitoring programme. For example, if maintenance staff know how to accurately interpret vibration readings or take an oil sample correctly or take proper care of the machinery, the efficacy of the condition monitoring programme is boosted hundredfold, and training plays a key role here.”

“Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, please contact us to confirm whether the courses will be held at a venue or online, as we strive to comply with lockdown regulations and keep our course delegates safe and healthy.”

WearCheck’s range of oil analysis and condition monitoring training courses is geared for maintenance practitioners operating at various levels within an organisation.  Many of these courses earn valuable CPD (continuing professional development) points for delegates.
