"I believe that ICML does stress holding its members to a high standard in terms of training and continuing education." "Practice instead of theory." "Intense focus on lubrication. Opening this shadowed part of industry to the world." "Sets a high bar to earn certification, which is a good thing. So, when people see your credential, it is looked upon highly." "Besides certification, ICML gives awa rds to compa nies or orga niza- tions that achieve lubrication and oil analysis excellence." "e staff is easily accessible; questions for exams are thoroughly reviewed." "ICML recognizes the field experience and expertise apart from focusing only on classroom training." "I really like that ICML's testing is not only based on maintenance strategy but also covers best practices. is is valuable for not only the technician out in the field but also for the maintenance manager trying to develop a maintenance strategy for the facility." "ICML is more grounded, dealing with the real world." Has certification impacted your earnings potential or marketability? Yes, certification improved earnings potential or marketability: 52% No impact: 36% Why Certify/Recertify? To maintain credentials, an ICML certificant must recertify every three years. Nearly half (45 percent) of survey respondents indicated they were still newly certified and had no experience with recertification yet. However, those who had been recertified at least once identified their top reasons for doing so: • Initial three-year certification was beneficial; makes sense to maintain it for my job/career/ business: 76% • I feel the need to keep up with evolving industry standards: 63% • Boss paid for recertification and instructed me to do it: 24% Other comments about recertification included the following: "Personal satisfaction and accomplish- ment on attaining my certification." "I believe that in a few years, the lube industry will replicate the pharma industry, and all sales/offers/recommen- dations will have to be made only by certified specialists." "Nice to have if I need to find another job." ML
