I started my career attaining my National Diploma(S4) in Mechanical Engineering and becoming a Performance and Testing Technician in the Power Generation Industry. I have been in the field of Condition Monitoring for past 16 years. Starting out as an apprentice I managed to improve my knowledge in condition monitoring in various industries and becoming involved in training. In my first years in condition monitoring, I managed to be certified by Technical Associates as a trainer for their courses and started specializing in ODS and Modal Analysis. I have worked in various industries and are qualified in Vibration, Thermography and Oil analysis. I also specialize in operational Deflection shape analysis. Currently, my main duties are shared between starting up new service contracts, Special Investigations, Training (Mobius Training Partner) Industries that I have worked in include Power Generation, Coal Mining, Platinum/chrome refinery and mining, Waste Water Treatment, Food, Paper and Sugar Mills. My most recent achievement was to pass the Mobius CAT IV course and starting up two service contracts in the Power Generation Industry that include vibration, thermography, oil analysis, alignment.
