Have you been to The Lube Room?
 
The Lube Room logoIn case you missed it, ICML started publishing its first-ever newsletter in August 2019, sending it out quarterly to thousands of lubrication certificants, trainers, and others with existing ICML relationships. Come read the back-issues and consider subscribing for "News to Keep You in Good Working Condition."
 

Can't travel to take an ICML exam in person?

How about sitting it in your hometown or online instead? ICML may be able to offer an examination session on-site or locally--even for small groups or individuals. If you would like to find out more about that, please email us at registrations@lubecouncil.org. And as of June 15, 2020, you can also apply for an online exam that you can sit in the privacy of your home or office. Read more about that option here.

Do not let your ICML credential expire!

Your certification is valid for three years from the date you sat your exam, and it can be extended every three years by re-certification. ICML's re-certification program is based on a points system, where points can be accumulated through specific activities, including your continued employment in the field. It is an easy process, but we need to hear from you so we can ensure your certified status is maintained. Email info@lubecouncil.org for more information.
