Applied Failure Analysis - Level 2

Course Date

Coming Soon

Course Length



Course Length: 5 days (8 hrs/day)
Applied Failure Analysis Level Two begins with a review of the basic principles of Applied Failure Analysis Level One. The failure analysis process itself will be applied to gears, anti-friction bearings, threaded fasteners, and hydraulic pumps and motors. Using this process, you will arrive at the most probable root cause of failure of a selection of components relevant to this course. The course consists of classroom instruction and laboratory exercises concluding with case studies of failures that have occurred in the field.

PPE Required

Students are asked to bring with them their own PPE as there may be a chance to observe a failure that has happened in the shop or field.


The course prerequisite for Applied Failure Analysis Level Two is the certification of Applied Failure Analysis Level One.


After completion of the course the participant will have covered:

  • Review of Applied Failure Analysis Management

  • Review of Principles of Fractures

  • Review of Principles of Wear

  • Failure Analysis of Gears

  • Failure Analysis of Anti-friction Bearings

  • Failure Analysis of Threaded Fasteners

  • Basic Principles of Hydraulic Pumps and Motors 

This course requires a successful completion of a written examination with a passing grade of 80% and the presentation of a report of the case study that you have evaluated.
