“Des-Case’s focus is to help customers maximize equipment uptime and reliability, reduce costs and take their lubrication programs to a totally new level of performance,” said Mark Barnes, vice president, Des-Case Reliability Services.  “And education is one of the best ways to do that.  The seminars and workshops that we’re announcing today will help ensure everyone involved in lubrication maintenance is on the same page in building and maintaining an effective, precision lubrication program.”

Des-Case offers both a one-day Lubrication Best Practices Workshop that’s complimentary and a more intensive, three-day Machinery Lubrication Training course based on the International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML) body of knowledge.  The three-day seminar has a course fee, but the training will prepare participants to take the ICML certification test post-seminar.

The current class schedule is:

1-day Lubrication Best Practices Workshop
Feb 26 Evansville, IN
Mar 5 Milwaukee, WI
Mar 12 Atlanta, GA
Mar 26 Cleveland, OH
Apr 9 Columbus, OH
Apr 24 Charleston, SC
May 1 Burlington, ON
May 22 Seattle, WA
Jun 18 Parkersburg, WV
3-day Machinery Lubrication Training

Apr 15 Minneapolis, MN
Apr 22 Nashville, TN

Both courses include hands-on labs and demonstrations and are designed and delivered by industrial lubrication experts with years of experience, both in plants and in the field.  Seminars are either co-sponsored with Des-Case distributors or are non-partnered events.  At the sessions, industrial professionals will gain valuable insight into improving their lubrication program and receive a detailed action list customized to their specific needs.

Des-Case expects to offer more than 20 workshops this year.  For more information, inquirers should contact Joy Warden at 615-672-8800 or joy.warden@descase.com.
