Rich rewards result from investing in WearCheck’s training

WearCheck experts conduct condition monitoring training courses all year round, in multiple locations. WearCheck training consultant Jan Bakker (blue shirt) conducted oil analysis training courses in Gauteng and North West Province in South Africa, recently

Ensuring that condition monitoring customers whose maintenance staff undergo ongoing technical skills training earn significant returns from their investment into the training courses, is a priority for condition monitoring specialist company, WearCheck.

Maintenance crew members can choose from more than 15 courses that are conducted by WearCheck’s experts in various categories of condition monitoring, including general oil analysis, reliability services, transformers and wind turbine oil analysis. Many of the courses earn valuable CPD (continuing professional development) points for delegates.

The training schedule, which has run successfully for over two decades, is overseen by Steven Lumley, technical manager at WearCheck.

‘Technology is developing at an exponential rate, and that which is used in the condition monitoring industry is no exception. Therefore, even experienced technicians need to brush up on new skills and learn about technical innovations as they become available on the market,’ she said.

‘WearCheck continuously adds in new training content to the course material to address the need to educate maintenance personnel about newly introduced techniques that can boost accuracy and efficiency, and make a condition monitoring programme even more effective. Therefore, it is important to attend the courses regularly, and not just on a once-off basis, to ensure that technical knowledge is up to date.

‘The words of Albert Einstein resonate well with WearCheck’s philosophy – he said, “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” At WearCheck, we are passionately curious about novelty and improvement in the condition monitoring arena, and we’re proud to be able to share our knowledge with our clients.

‘We embrace innovation at WearCheck, and are constantly implementing new technologies – therefore, the more informed our clients are about the upgraded analysis systems, the better their return on investment into a condition monitoring programme.

The different courses are structured to be appropriate for several levels of maintenance crew members, from introductory right up to extremely scientific and technical.
