CLS Exam and Preparation Course

Today manufacturing companies are becoming more reliability focused in this economic environment to remain competitive in a global economy with lubrication being the cornerstone of any reliability program.  Would you like to enhance your knowledge with one of the most effective lubrication classes in the industry and at the same time become a Certified Lubrication Specialist®?  This will position you in a difficult economic environment to be more productive in your organization/plant in resolving lubrication problems.  Also, you will enhance your competitive position by obtaining the most prestigious certification in the lubricants industry. It has been documented that CLS personnel earn more than their peers in similar positions. This was documented in a recent survey conducted by Lubes and Greases magazine.

A three day class to help you meet your lubrication objectives is offered by Lubrication Training & Consulting (LTC). The CLS exam administered by STLE is offered the fourth day.

The CLS preparation class will be held in Philadelphia September 29-October 1, 2015 and the CLS exam will be held on October 2. For more detailed information, please access the brochure HERE.

Philadelphia STLE Awarded "Outstanding Section 2015"


Congratulations Philadelphia Section STLE - you did it!

Thanks to the hardworking/dedicated Board members, Corporate Sponsors, Speakers, Scholarship Donors & Winners, The University of Pennsylvania, Sandy Run Golf Club and each and every one who attended our meetings.  This Award is the culmination of many years of dedicated work by exceptional individuals who, like you, unselfishly work for the betterment of our industry and society as a whole.  You worked without expectation of any financial reward, yet worked hard for the personal satisfaction of helping others succeed.  This Section is truly a family who cares for each other and does their best to ensure each member has the potential to achieve their personal best.  Our success is built on past contributions of members like Ed Haney and George Arbocus for whom, this year in memorial; we respectfully attach their names to our Golf Outing and Scholarship Program.  Our success is built on the future too, by encouraging study in science and engineering through participation in the Delaware Valley Science Fair and our generous Scholarship Program.

Our success is not because of any one individual or program, it’s the whole package!  As outgoing Chairman of this Section, I offer a big thank you to each and every one of you (past, present and future participants) who participated in any small way to help us achieve this prestigious award.  I am truly humbled, honored and appreciative to be a part of this special family we call Philadelphia Section – STLE!  I can’t wait to see what our Section’s future brings.

With Sincere Appreciation,

John Irwin

2014-15 Board Chairman
