Chevron Offers Two New Courses on Lubricants University

Chevron’s Lubricants University, an educational Web site focused on lubrication and coolant issues, is introducing two new courses, “Fundamentals of Industrial Gear Lubrication” and “Fundamentals of Heavy Duty Coolants,” as part of its course catalog. The site offers web-based, self-study courses designed for maintenance professionals interested in ongoing training.

The “Fundamentals of Industrial Gear Lubrication” course increases understanding of gear types and their operation, lubrication best practices, ongoing maintenance issues and the types of lubricants used in stationary industrial gear boxes. The course helps technicians, plant maintenance personnel and lubricant salespeople better understand the role of gear lubrication and maintenance play in achieving efficient equipment operation and extended life.

“Fundamentals of Heavy Duty Coolants” covers the operation of engine cooling systems, including parts, potential problems, and the benefits and drawbacks of the various conventional and extended life coolants currently available on the market. Individuals in maintenance related positions in the construction, mining and on- and off-road trucking markets, as well as OEMs, their dealers and lubricant salespeople will benefit from this informative course.

Courses are available at a cost of $59.95 each. To purchase a course by credit card, call the Chevron Fulfillment Center at 1-866-7LUBESU (1-866-758-2378). A subscription program is available for companies interested in offering training to multiple employees.
