What is MLA Certification?
The purpose for the Level II Machine Lubricant Analyst (MLA) certification is to verify that technicians practicing in the field of lube oil analysis, as it is applied to machinery condition monitoring and maintenance, are qualified to perform the following tasks:
Install sampling hardware such that a representative sample may be efficiently and repeatedly extracted from mechanical systems commonly found in industrial and fleet applications.
Effectively extract representative samples from typical industrial machinery, and prepare them for analysis.
Employ basic oil analysis techniques to identify and troubleshoot conditions of wrong or degraded lubricant, and devise and implement corrective actions.
Employ basic oil analysis to identify and troubleshoot contaminated lubricant conditions, and devise and implement corrective actions.
Employ basic oil analysis techniques to identify and troubleshoot abnormal machine wear conditions, and devise and implement corrective actions.
Inspect and receive new oil deliveries.
Common job titles for the individual who would become Level II MLA certified include Oiler, Lube Technician, Lubricator, PM or PDM Technician, Millwright, Mechanic, Reliability Technician, etc. Generally, this individual has regular contact with the machine and has routine influence over the condition of lubricants and hydraulic fluids in use. The individual is likely to be directly involved in oil sampling and troubleshooting routine problems identified by lab test results and field lubricant inspections. As such a basic understanding of lubrication, oil analysis tests, oil analysis terminology, and data interpretation are required. For more information see www.lubecouncil.org.
