Certificate of Lubricant Competence

The Certificate of Lubricant Competence course delivered over 9 one-day modules, provides a foundation on the lubricants industry from refining and exploration to health, safety and the environment – a comprehensive lubricant training programme.

Online and face to face options are available for all delegates.

Candidates attending all 9 modules over one or two consecutive years are eligible to sit the final exam to achieve certification.  Attendance of specific individual modules is also always available.

Covering the fundamentals of exploration, manufacture and formulation of lubricants and greases; product distribution and final disposal of used lubrication products, with particular emphasis on Health, Safety and Environmental issues; each module is led by an industry expert in the field.  We are in the privileged and unique position to be able to offer you the best industry experts for each module,  keeping the course relevant and up to date with current legislation and market forces.

This course is primarily aimed at those who want to gain a thorough grounding on lubricants and lubrication. Plus, those who need to improve their skills and understanding by being brought up-to-speed on all the relevant information pertinent to the UK and European lubricants markets. It also provides a perspective on the global lubricant industry.

This course would especially benefit newcomers and recently promoted lubricants personnel, or those who feel they would like to broaden their knowledge, such as customer support, technical and non-technical personnel, sales and marketing, legal and lubricants distribution staff.
