Advanced Courses

E-learning This course can be adapted to virtual classroom mode

Who should attend?

  • The course “Automotive and industrial lubricants” being an ntroduction course intended mainly for beginners in the lubrication and the lubricants areas, other advanced courses may be organized, on request and for a minimum number of attendees, covering all the lubricants technical areas.
  • The main parts of the program of the course are given, but the contents may be adapted to suit particular requirements.
  • It provides participants with extended information on the equipment technology to be lubricated and on the relationship with the lubrication requirements, as well as on the lubricants properties.
Public :
  • Engineers and technical staff beginning working in development, technical assistance, manufacturing or sales of lubricants.
  • Mandatory prerequisite: “Lubrication and lubricants” and “Automotive and industrial lubricants”.

Level : Foundation

      • Temporary protection against corrosion fluids.

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand the fundamentals about the equipment technology related to lubrication,
  • understand the lubricants operating requirements,
  • know how to recommend a lubricant and how to identify the causes of in-service issues and how to solve them.
