Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

Designed to advance the theory of ultrasound into the next generation. It surmount and surpasses the ISO 18436-part 8 CAT 1 ASU outline. This course teaches students about the principles of Ultrasound, their Ultrasound Devices and the use of Sound Analysis Software to determine previously unknown fault conditions that other courses couldn’t identify.

The student will be immersed in a Learner & Instructor Centered, Content Focused, Lecture Methodology that is proven to deliver through the use of self-paced video modules. Students will learn about the science of Ultrasound, the various applications for CBM based reliability, increase mean time between failure, and a decrease total cost of asset when the principles learned in the class are applied at the students site.


  1. It is recommended that the student have 210 hours of documented operational use Ultrasound detection devices.
  2. For completion of assignments, student will need access to an  Ultrasound Device and sound analysis software.
  3. Students will need to download the Course Book found on the Materials tab above.
