ICML 55: Order the new standard for lubricated mechanical asset management

ICML 55.1 book coverIt's here! In alignment with ISO 55000, and with input from 45 international subject matter experts, ICML 55.1 Requirements Standard spells out tactical requirements necessary to establish, implement, maintain, and improve consistent management systems and activities in TWELVE interrelated areas of a world-class lubrication program. Click here to read more and to order your print or PDF copy of ICML 55.1 today.  

 
"Where Global Lubrication & Oil Analysis Leaders Connect"
 
Machinery Lubrication conf. logoAs an endorsing sponsor of Machinery Lubrication Conference & Exhibition, ICML encourages you to join all manner of entry-level and seasoned lubrication, maintenance, and reliability professionals--decision-makers in petrochemical, power generation, pulp & paper, food processing, manufacturing, fleet, and other industries. If you hold a current ICML certificate (MLA, MLT, LLA, or MLE) you can enjoy a $200 registration discount! It all happens in Houston, November 4-6, 2019. We are exhibiting at booth #419.
 

ICML is proud to support CMC in Peru, the annual Congreso de Mantenimiento & Confiabilidad to be held November 25-28, in Lima, Peru. This event offers a full program for all: practitioners, specialists, managers, educators, students, and even the new and uninitiated. As a proud sponsor of this event, we encourage you to register today.


In addition to exhibiting, we will also proctor an open exam session on Tuesday, November 26th at 6:00 pm. If you want to sit an ICML certification exam at this session, you must register directly with ICML in advance, independent of the conference.

 

Now Available: MLE certification for lubrication engineers
Nothing else compares
MLE certificant logo

Introduced in April 2019, our management-level MLE (Machinery Lubrication Engineer) certification for reliability and lubricated asset management professionals is ideal for those with responsibility to develop, implement, and manage entire lubrication programs. The comprehensive body of knowledge corresponds to ICML 55.1 Standard, too. You can sit the MLE exam at any public session listed in our online calendar if you register at least two weeks in advance, or you can contact us to schedule your own session. Apply today!

 

Can't travel to take an ICML exam?

How about sitting it in your hometown? ICML may be able to offer an examination session on-site or locally - even for small groups or individuals. If you would like to arrange for an exam or would like more information, please contact registrations@lubecouncil.org

Do not let your ICML credential expire!

Your certification is valid for three years from the date you sat your exam and needs to be extended every three years by re-certification. ICML has a system of re-certification by points available, where needed points can come from your continued employment in the field - it's an easy process, but we need to hear from you in order to ensure your certified status is preserved. Email admin@lubecouncil.org for more information.
