Mobius Institute Vibration Introduces Accredited ISO 18436 Category IV Vibration Analysis Training and Certification

Mobius Institute, the premier provider of vibration analysis and machine reliability training courses and products, today announced that it will begin offering its new accredited master-level vibration analysis course and certification to the U.S. & Canadian markets in 2013. This course will be given in accordance with ISO standard 18436 for Category IV vibration analysts. The Master Vibration Analyst course provides the highest level of vibration analysis training and certification available to worldwide industrial plant personnel and vibration analysis consultants.

In accordance with International Organization for Standardization (www.iso.org), ISO 18436 standards, this course provides comprehensive training in the subjects of fluid film instabilities, rotor-bearing dynamics, mass stiffness and dampening, modal analysis, frequency response functions, phase, coherence and operating deflection shapes. The course is held in two separate sessions covering a minimum of 64 hours of training, with an option to take the certification examination at the end of the second course period.

Mobius Institute began delivering vibration analysis training in 1999 with the launch of its flagship computer-based training product, iLearnVibration™. Since that time, Mobius has expanded its iLearn product line to include teachings of field balancing, shaft alignment and other condition monitoring topics. In 2005, Mobius moved its high-quality training to the classroom by offering ISO 18436 Category I-III vibration analyst training courses worldwide. In 2012, Mobius Institute became an ISO/IEC 17024 accredited certification body, able to provide ISO Category I-IV certifications throughout its training network. With the addition of Category IV Vibration Analysis training to its offerings, Mobius Institute now has a complete offering that is unsurpassed by any vendor or training organization throughout the world.

A key element of Mobius Institute’s courses is its Crystal Clear™ training technology that allows complex concepts to be more easily understood. Proven and refined since 2005, Crystal Clear training provides students with a higher level of understanding of vibration analysis through its extensive use of hundreds of highly visual 3D animations, Adobe® Flash® technology simulations, and numerous software simulators to captivate the student’s mind. Crystal Clear assures that students don’t simply depend on memorizing vibration theory, but clearly visualize and understand it.

“We are pleased to be able to offer the accredited Master-level course and certification to the industrial marketplace,” said Jason Tranter, founder and managing director, Mobius Institute. “I am very confident that our students will find that Mobius Institute’s Crystal Clear format will ensure that they will be more successful in learning and fully understanding these advanced topics, than from any competitive training offering.”

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
Successful digital transformation requires new organizational competencies and capabilities. Research tells us that the biggest impediment to successful transformation is human; consequently, the biggest enabler is a properly skilled and empowered workforce.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...

In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
