Basic Lubrication 103 This course is designed primarily for the person entering the lubrication field who needs a broad introduction to lubricants, lubricant building blocks, and lubricating materials. This course is also for persons not directly involved, but who need a broad overview of lubricants and basic lubricating components. This course does not require the course taker to have 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 103 is usually attended by a broad cross section of people, such as technical, technical service, sales, marketing, manufacturing, maintenance, and management, who in some way are involved in the industry. The Basic course will focus on the fundamentals of lubrication associated with fluid film lubrication and grease as it applies to basic lubricated components such as gears and bearings. Also, the course will review some basics around base stocks, synthetic lubricants and lab testing.

Metalworking 130: Metal Treatment Chemicals This course is intended for chemists, engineers, technical support staff and field service technicians working with and using metalworking fluids. While processing parts using metalworking fluids, there is a need for treating, cleaning, and protecting chemical and/or coatings. Substrates either are immersed in these chemicals or have them applied during some point of the processing. This course covers heat treating including oil and polymer quenching, cleaning parts and protecting parts from rust and corrosion. Individuals learn the basics of metallurgy as it applies to heat treating and quenching
