RS technicians ace their CAT certification

Four more of WearCheck’s RS (reliability solutions) technicians recently passed their CAT certification through the Mobius Institute, which is a worldwide provider of education in reliability improvement, condition monitoring and precision maintenance. This follows the ten WearCheck technicians who gained their CAT certification earlier this year.

WearCheck is the certified Mobius training centre for Africa, and courses are run for WearCheck customers anywhere, any date, on demand.

Technicians who gained their CAT 111 certification are Alastair Mac Gillicudy and Roeloff Hoffmann, while those who earned their CAT 11 certification are Reinier Kalp and Stephanie du Plessis.

CAT 11 students underwent a compulsory 18-month practical experience, followed by four days of lectures and a full day examination. CAT 111 students had to complete a 36-month practical experience, lectures for four days and examinations.

Vibration database setup and fault analysis are the predominant focus of both CAT 11 and CAT 111. The training sessions are practical and hands-on, enabling the technicians to hone their skills and progress to the next level.

Dennis Swanepoel - WearCheck reliability solutions consultant, Mobius trainer and CAT 1V graduate - is extra proud of his latest graduates. ‘Congratulations, everyone!’

Roeloff Hoffmann, reliability solutions technician from WearCheck in Limpopo, earned his CAT 111 certification. Reinier Kalp from Springs and Stephanie du Plessis from KZN WearCheck successfully earned their CAT 11 certification.
