Driving force of success: Professional development

Only a well-trained workforce ensures first-class service, which is why we regularly invest in the further training of our employees. Currently, 13 employees from the laboratory, sample acquisition, sales and technical assistance are participating in the MLA II further training in order to gain expertise for their daily work.

The MLA II certificate (“Machine Lubricant Analyst”), which is issued after passing the examination by ICML (International Council for Machinery Lubrication) certifies well-founded knowledge in the area of machine lubrication, specifically within the context of machine status inspection and maintenance. Carsten Heine, Head of Tribology Team at OELCHECK, holds the weekly preparatory examination course within our company. Participants attend 25 course units in preparation for the MLA II examination held in the fall of 2019.

Once again, several OELCHECK employees also received the internationally recognised CLS certificate (“Certified Lubrication Specialist”) , which is greatly valued in the industry. Most recently, our tribologists Arne Simon and Daniel Rossow successfully completed the certificate course. Additionally, Max Schuldeis, Head of Laboratory at OELCHECK, also extended his CLS certificate this year.

The CLS certificate, which is issued by STLE (Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers) certifies a high degree of competence in the areas tribology and lubrication technology. In addition to extensive basic knowledge about lubrication correlations, trainees also require in-depth knowledge of lubrication application in order to pass the exam. Already 11 OELCHECK employees have received the sought-after CLS certificate.
