Most people and organizations consider certification to be extremely important. Certification gives management a solid feel for evaluating the proficiency of their Vibration Analysts while allowing the individuals to receive recognition for the expertise achieved as their experience grows. Many employers include certification in job descriptions and make it a requirement for new employees. Certification can also have a positive impact on company insurance premiums.
Technical Associates Board of Certification has now certified over 13,500 persons from 60 different countries over the past 29 years since 1989. Our certification has worldwide recognition and is transferable from one company to another and across international borders. The content of both the seminar texts and written examinations provides real-world problem scenarios which closely simulate those faced by the analysts on a daily basis. TABofC offers two certification options; ASNT compliant and ISO compliant. No annual fees are required to maintain any of our certifications.
