You are qualified to lead condition monitoring teams and will have a deep understanding of machine dynamics and failure modes.  With your knowledge and qualifications you are able to design tests to solve difficult problems and identify underlying issues to prevent reoccurrence.  There are no rotating machines problems too difficult to solve.  You will carry the highest regard in the field of machine condition monitoring.  But be warned; everyone will be seeking your assessment of their machine problems!

Mobius Institute's MASTER Vibration Analyst course teaches you advanced measurement signal processing techniques, torsional vibration and cross-channel measurements, dynamics including mass/stiffness/damping and natural frequencies, modal analysis and operating deflection shapes, orbit and centerline analysis, rotor dynamics, correction techniques including isolation, damping, and tuned absorbers, and other advanced topics.

In accordance with International Organization for Standardization (www.iso.org), ISO 18436-2 standard, the course requires a minimum of 64 hours of training, which normally takes two or three separate classes with all the attendant time and travel expenses..

The content of the entire Category IV course can be viewed over the Internet on video. All of the topics covered in the required 64 hours of training as specified in ISO 18436.2 are taught in videos using our famous 3D animations and software simulations. These lessons are taught by the founder of Mobius Institute, Jason Tranter, and one of the most respected people in the vibration community; Bob Eisenmann.

While you watch the videos you can also attempt the “worked examples”. These questions are practical in nature and are designed to not only test your knowledge and understanding, but also provide a way for you to test whether you are likely to be able to successfully complete the Category IV exam. You can take the lessons via video is many times as you like. You will see and hear the animations and simulations which make everything easier to understand. And you will hear Bob Eisenmann’s case studies where the theory is put into practice.

Following the online portions of the course, you will attend a four-day classroom session to combine education, review and question practice. Attendees will learn, and attendees will be tested. The sessions will be very interactive with ample opportunity to ask questions. As we review the topics covered in the on-line videos we will also challenge you with exam standard practical questions. On the fifth day of the classroom portion of the course, you will be offered the optional Category IV certification exam.


Master Vibration Analyst (CAT-IV) - PART 1 (Online)

  • Venue: Distance Learning
  • Duration: 4 days (equivalent)
  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs): 4

Part One of the course will be delivered via distance learning; access to a Web site will be required however a computer-based version will be available at an extra cost.  The course will be taught by Jason Tranter, founder of Mobius Institute.  Quizzes will be performed during the course in order to gauge comprehension. The primary focus of this course is advanced signal processing, cross channel measurements, dynamics (mass/stiffness/damping, natural frequencies, modes), resonance testing (run-up/coast down tests, impact tests, ODS, modal analysis), and corrective action (flow control, resonance correction, isolation and damping).  This course will take a practical approach to these subjects.  Animations and software simulations will be used to make these topics easier to understand.  Mathematics and theoretical derivations will be kept to an absolute minimum.

Learn more about the specific topics covered by downloading our topics brochure. 

Prerequisite: 60 months experience and CAT-III certification by Mobius Institute, Vibration Institute or BINDT.

Master Vibration Analyst (CAT-IV) - PART 2 (Online)

  • Venue: Distance Learning
  • Duration: 4 days online (equivalent) 
  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs): 4

Part Two consists of both an online learning portion and a classroom portion.  

The primary focus of Part 2 is the measurement, analysis, dynamics, and balancing of turbomachinery.  Topics will include proximity probe and casing measurements, orbit and centerline plot analysis, rotor dynamics (natural frequencies, modeling), journal bearings (design, fluid film instabilities), and flexible rotor balancing.  The course will also cover torsional vibration. 

Learn more about the specific topics covered by downloading our brochure. 

Prerequisite: 60 months experience and CAT-III certification by Mobius Institute, Vibration Institute or BINDT, and completion of PART 1 (above).

Please Note: Part 2 online and classroom portions must be purchased together. To purchase the Part 2 course and reserve your seat in the classroom portion of the course, click the "schedule" button provided below.


Master Vibration Analyst (CAT-IV) - PART 2 (Classroom)

  • Venue: Classroom
  • Duration: 5 days

This four-day course will be delivered in a classroom environment, with the optional examination given on the fifth day. 

The aim of the classroom session is to combine education, review and question practice. Attendees will learn, and attendees will be tested. The sessions will be very interactive with ample opportunity to ask questions. As we revise the topics covered in the on-line videos we will also challenge you with exam standard practical questions. We will also utilize the polling devices for spot quizzes.

Classroom Agenda

Day One & Two: 

We will focus on advanced signal processing, structural dynamics, corrective action (isolation, resonance correction, etc.), ODS, and modal analysis. Along with the topic revision we will go through the worked examples and students will be given poll questions to test their knowledge.

Day Three & Four:

We will focus on proximity probe measurements, conventions, orbits, centerline plots, journal bearings, rotordynamics, diagnosing common faults associated with journal bearings and turbo-machinery, and flexible rotor balancing. Once again, along with the topic revision we will go through the worked examples and students will be given poll questions to test their knowledge.

Day Five (Optional Certification Exam): 

The Category IV examination will be offered on the fifth day.  The exam consists of 60 questions which must be completed in five hours.  

Prerequisite: 60 months experience (must be verified) and CAT-III certification by Mobius Institute, Vibration Institute or BINDT, and completion of PART 1 Online & PART 2 Online portions of the course.

Please Note: Part 2 online and classroom portions must be purchased together. To purchase the Part 2 course and reserve your seat in the classroom portion of the course, click the "schedule" button provided below.  


MASTER - Vibration Analysis Training

ISO Category IV Vibration Analysis

The CAT-IV course is delivered in a hybrid format.  Part 1 represents the first four days (equivalent) and is delivered via online learning.  Likewise, Part 2 is a online learning course, that runs an equivelent of four days.  Following your completion of Part 1 and 2, you will schedule the live classroom portion of course where you will receive additional training, review of topics from Part 1 and 2, and prepare for the exam through practice questions.
