Fluid Life offers private online webinar training designed to deepen the knowledge of people who manage assets or work with mechanical systems. These private online training courses can be customized to suit your industry, company, and employee requirements.

Lubrication is the lifeblood of machinery, and understanding what lubricants are made of, how they work, and how they can fail will allow technicians and engineers to make better maintenance decisions and maximize the life of their equipment.

Fluid life’s training courses are eligible for the Canada Job Grant up to $10,000 per employee.


Learning about the principles, practices, and the mindset of modern reliability methods will optimize maintenance tasks and will facilitate the development of a robust, specific, and effective maintenance program.  Dovetailing the information available in these courses will help attendees master the art of machinery reliability and maintenance.

While in-class certification training sessions are generally between 3-5 days in length, we are offering private webinar based training over a number of sessions to accommodate attendee schedules and improve the online experience. Each session is approximately 3.5 hours in length and includes a review and question period.

While the courses offered by Fluid Life contain the information required in the Body of Knowledge, they should not be used solely to pass the exams offered by ICML. Fluid Life courses will aid individuals in developing their knowledge base, however a single course may not cover all questions that will appear on the exams and is not specifically designed to do so. We strongly suggest individuals prepare by reading the recommended materials, prior to attending the examination.

Attendees wishing to challenge any of the ICML exams, must register online and find a sitting directly with ICML. Exam cost is separate and additional to the course.
