Study Materials: The STLE website contains all the pertinent information regarding CLS Certification. It contains a suggested reading list; TestOil highly recommends the second choice, The Basic Handbook of Lubrication – Third Edition, which can be purchased from the STLE website.
We also recommend reviewing the two ASTM standards that are listed, which are available from https://www.astm.org/
