What's Happening  
 
Online exams have LAUNCHED!
 
Online exams are open July 10Nearly four months after announcing that we would introduce virtual exams, we are finally ready! Practitioners have been registering for our online exams since June 15. And now, starting July 10, we are processing them into the new system so they can start scheduling their own exams from their homes and offices. And so can you! Read the Press Release...
 
Introducing... verifiable digital credentials
 
Machinery Lubrication conf. logoICML recently partnered with a specialized blockchain vendor to produce digital credentials that are universally accessible and verifiable in real time--no more waiting for international mail delivery! We started emailing all our certificants about this in February 2020, providing links to their digital credentials that can supplement (and replace) their paper certificates. Read More...
 
Looking for training near you? Start here!
 
Lube InstructorDozens of training providers all over the world have signed our partner agreement to give assurance to us—and you—that their certification classes satisfy ICML prerequisites. We list their names, regions, and links here. See the List...
 
A Change to MLA II Requirements
 
Machinery Lubrication conf. logoFor purposes of MLA II exam qualification, and pursuant to ISO Standards, ICML can no longer accept “960 hours of experience” as an alternative to MLA I certification. Read More...
 
Step up to 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 apply to take the exam online.

 

Can't travel to take an ICML exam in person?

How about sitting it in your hometown or online instead? ICML may be able to offer an examination session on-site or locally--even for small groups or individuals. If you would like to find out more about that, please email us at registrations@lubecouncil.org. And as of June 15, 2020, you can also apply for an online exam that you can sit in the privacy of your home or office. Read more about that option here.

Do not let your ICML credential expire!

Your certification is valid for three years from the date you sat your exam, and it can be extended every three years by re-certification. ICML's re-certification program is based on a points system, where points can be accumulated through specific activities, including your continued employment in the field. It is an easy process, but we need to hear from you so we can ensure your certified status is maintained. Email admin@lubecouncil.org for more information.
