The class will also include a tour of Eurofins TestOil’s world-class lab just outside of Cleveland. Eurofins TestOil Training Unit Business Manager Tim Skully explains, “The lab tour is a great way to see the process and understand what happens to your samples once they reach the lab. You’ll also get to see the tests performed that are talked about in the class.”

The instructor will be Eurofins TestOil Senior Technical Advisor Evan Zabawski. Evan is a Certified Lubrication Specialist with extensive experience training tradesmen and professionals in a variety of fields including: lubrication fundamentals, contamination control, condition monitoring, RCM/FMEA and used oil analysis.  

“You can never have enough training and there’s always the opportunity to learn something new,” Tim adds. “Having a certification is also a way to prove to others that you have the skillset.” 

Eurofins TestOil Oil Analysis Training

Eurofins TestOil is proud to offer industry-leading training classes taught by qualified industry experts with a wide variety of options to fit your training needs. So whether you’re eager to expand your lubrication maintenance knowledge and skills, need to become certified or retain an existing certification, or if you want to get the most out of your learning and development budget, we provide a solution.

Private Training

In addition to the public training classes, Eurofins TestOil offers private training classes either virtual or onsite that can offer a real value for groups of four or more people. Private training may be the answer if:

  • Cost too high? Private trainings are one flat fee regardless of the number of attendees.
  • Public classes require too much time? Private trainings can be tailored to length.
  • Scheduling conflicts with public offerings? Private trainings can be scheduled to accommodate your schedule.
  • Public trainings cover information you don’t need or don’t cover information you want? Private training subject matter can be adjusted to the specific needs of your company.

                On the fence about registering for either public or private training because you don’t require or want the certification? Certification is optional and the class still provides exceptional value without the certification. The goal of each class is to increase your knowledge, capabilities, and value in the workplace.
