This Program aims to convey the latest thinking and best practice of all Equipments related to Industry Equipment Components, Operation and Troubleshooting Condition, Monitoring and Analysis. Also, it gives a detailed advanced treatment of the detection, location and diagnosis of faults in Mechanical Equipments. It will provide a solid foundation for technologists moving into a machine monitoring and diagnostic role. All delegates will learn the technique, tools and the procedure of root cause failure analysis and failure mode effective analysis as a proactive strategy for achieving precise operation, and improving machinery performance. This course offers insight into how to analyze a system’s failure modes and define how to prevent or find those failures early.


Upon completion of the course, the trainee will be able to:

  • Consolidate and update understanding of the Terminology used in measuring and analysis.
  • Provide methods to improve equipment through the prediction and the avoidance of Equipment Failure.
  • Understanding the critical necessities and priorities associated for maintaining machinery
  • Key procedure for the implementation of risk based failure analysis
  • Equipment critically and functional failure
  • How to reduce the overall life cycle cost of owning a piece of equipment.
  • Maximize component life by avoiding the cause of failure.
  • Be familiar with condition based maintenance rather than corrective maintenance.
  • Implement real improvements in machinery reliability and plant performance.
  • Use case studies based on both technical and non technical situations.


Machinery Failure Analysis and Prevention course is designed for Operation Engineers, Design Engineers, Maintenance Engineers, Supervisors, and Planning Engineers working in refineries, petrochemical plants and power stations.


The Machinery Failure Analysis and Prevention training course will utilize a variety of proven learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes lecture with active delegate participation including discussions, real life problems, case studies and relevant videos. The course instructor may modify the above training methodology during the course for technical reason.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.

Achieving Customer Service Excellence training course will be presented with the aid of highly motivating presentations together with videos and case studies to enhance learning. Discussions, skills practice and group work will allow delegates to get fully involved, participate, experience and understand the practical implications.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
