The course consists of 18 different online modules, each approximately 30 minutes in length, coupled with a test at the end of each module and direct dialogue with Per Arnold himself if needed. The course not only covers how to effectively handle the process of Root Cause Failure Analysis on damaged or failure bearings, but also how to recognize the 10 different types of damage or failure.The course is Online accessible and can be completed at ones leisure or as time permits plus it is a voice over based innovative learning concept. The course can be individually taken in any of 12 different parts depending on the need, or can be taken as the complete whole program. Successful students will receive a CoC, (Certificate of Competence) in bearing failure analysis.
