Basic Lubrication 101 is primarily for the person entering the lubrication field who needs a broad introduction to the field of lubrication, lubrication principles and lubricating materials. This course is also for individuals not directly involved but who need a broad overview of lubricants and basic lubricating components. This course does not require a formal scientific degree or background, although many technical terms and concepts are covered. Experienced people attend the course to be kept up to date on the latest developments, especially in those areas not directly related to their job function or area of expertise. Thus, Basic Lubrication 101 is usually attended by a broad cross section of people such as technical, technical service, sales, marketing, manufacturing, maintenance and managers who in some way are involved in the industry.

Basic Lubrication 102 is an overview of equipment systems (gears, bearings, seals, compressors and engines) and their lubrication requirements, including a module on grease. Like Basic Lubrication 101, this course does not require a formal scientific degree or background, although many technical terms and concepts related to the use of lubricants in various mechanical devices are covered. This course is intended for a diverse group, including people involved in technical service, sales, marketing, manufacturing, maintenance and managers who want to know more about how lubricants work in service. This course assumes fundamental knowledge of lubricants and lubrication principles, as presented in the Basic Lubrication 101 course.

Metalworking Fluids 240: Metalworking Fluid Formulation Concepts This new course is in response to many students of our other MWF courses who asked for a course on how to formulate. It will begin with some universal formulating basics, such as experimental design, order of additions for ingredients, and considerations when scaling up from beakers to large blending tanks. Also covered will be base stocks, performance additives, emulsifier selection, HLB, qualification tests, optimization for stability both in the drum and in use, bioresistance, microbicide selection and use, and recalcitrant functional additives. Our instructors will then discuss formulating for disposability and for global distribution. A panel discussion with all instructors will complete the course. While several example formulations will be presented throughout the sessions, this course will NOT be providing specific ready-to-use commercial formulations.
