Vibration Analysis Diploma

Round #15



Engineering Tracks provide a unique learning experience through a professional Vibration analysis diploma, in a way that goes beyond the theoretical and academic curriculum to include real-life practical applications. This training includes a set of professional courses that represent the highest standards of knowledge and competency for professionals in the vibration analysis domain today.

Diploma Structure:


This diploma consists of a group of professional courses in the field of predictive maintenance (based on vibration analysis) and proactive maintenance (based on laser alignment and dynamic balancing) for rotary machines such as pumps, screw and centrifugal compressors, cooler fans, and blowers. It is supported by real-life case studies which boost the courses' objectives. The course content has been prepared as follows:

Syllabus outline:


Machinery Vibration Analysis (Level I)

Duration: 9 hrs.

(3 hrs. /Session)

This course content was prepared to help attendees to perform a proper setup and simple machinery vibration condition monitoring. This level is the ideal starting for new vibration analysts.

  • Types of Maintenance Programs
  • Vibration Measurement Standards
  • Fundamental of vibration
  • Vibration Units ISO (Metric)
  • Vibration Transducers
  • Concept of Vibration Measurement


Course Outcomes:


  • Understand the fundamentals and physical nature of rotating machinery vibrations.
  • Select the appropriate machinery vibration measurement method.
  • Set up instruments for the basic resolution of amplitude, frequency, and time.
  • Be familiar with some causes and results of poor measurement data.
  • Analyze and evaluate the test results following applicable standards.

Machinery Vibration Analysis (Level II)


Duration: 9 hrs.

(3 hrs. /Session)

This Level helps prepare attendees by giving a deep vision in analyzing vibration signals such as time wave, spectrum, and envelope for better detection and identifying the various mechanical and electrical defects in rotary machines.

  • Understanding data collection
  • Signal processing
  • Fault diagnosis tools

  • Understand the vibration analysis tools such as spectrum, phase, and time waveform.
  • Analyze the vibration data of rotary machines such as pumps, compressors, fans, and blowers to detect the faults in mechanical and electrical components such as shafts, bearings, impellers, motor rotor bars, and else.
  • Understand the practical case studies which collect a variety of industrial issues.

Precise Shaft Alignment


Duration: 6 hrs.

(3 hrs. /Session)

This course provides attendees with practical applications of the advanced method for performing shaft alignment based on the laser concept of two units attached to the motor and other driven machines (pumps, compressors, fans, and blowers). In addition, an overview of traditional shaft alignment methods based on dial indicators is presented.

  • Alignment definition and possible causes of misalignment
  • Shaft alignment mathematics
  • Diagnosing misalignment
  • Prealignment checks and corrections
  • Soft foot check
  • Shaft alignment based on the dial indicators
  • Shaft alignment based on the laser concept
  • Thermal growth effects
  • Machine train alignment
  • Case Study

Course Outcomes:


  • Understand the possible causes of misalignment.
  • Understand the concepts of traditional shaft alignment.
  • Learn the mathematical theory of laserbased alignment.
  • Identify misalignment diagnosis based on vibration spectrum analysis.
  • Learn the prealignment checks.
  • Understand the concepts of laser shaft alignment procedures.
  • See the sequence of laser shaft alignment procedures on practical application.

Rotary Machine Balancing


Duration: 6 hrs.

(3 hrs. /Session)

The methodologies to repair (in site) the unbalance formed in the machine rotors due to damage and corrosion are included in this course content which empowers attendees to identify the unbalance, form a vibration analysis, and apply a suitable balancing method.

  • Causes of unbalance and its types 
  • Balance theory
  • Diagnosing unbalance
  • Machine balancing methods
  • Tolerances and quality

Course Outcomes:


  • Know the possible causes of unbalance.
  • Define the different types of rotor unbalance.
  • Differentiate between two important expressions (Heavy Spot and High Spot).
  • Identify the unbalance defect based on vibration analysis.
  • Understand safety precautions and checklist before performing balancing.
  • Learn singleplane balancing.
  • Learn twoplane balancing.
  • Define the acceptable tolerance and grade of balancing.


Course Duration:


This training lasts for 30 hours of professional training and interactive online classes, divided as follows:

18 Hours for Machinery Vibration Analysis (Level I & Level II)

12 Hours for Precise Shaft Alignment & Rotary Machine Balancing
