Training, Skill Standards, and Certification

would allow for observed and graded performance under field conditions before the individual is
able to independently perform the tasks of lubricating equipment, taking oil samples, or
performing analysis.

Developing machinery lubrication and lubricant analysis skills with occupation-oriented training
to build knowledge, skills, and attitudes can go a long way toward ensuring that lubrication best
practices are implemented and effective. By certifying individuals, the level of knowledge and
skills attained is not only ensured, but also a sense of pride and commitment permeates the
organization.
