What is a Lubrication Specialist?

Certified Lubrication Specialist (CLS) verifies broad lubrication engineering knowledge. Certification recognizes those individuals who possess current knowledge of lubrication fundamentals and best practices in lubrication maintenance in industrial settings. Certified individuals must have at least three years of experience in the field of lubrication.

A Certified Lubrication Specialist is an individual who is designated as a “Lubrication Engineer” by his/her employer. However, it is not limited to this designation, as individuals from varied backgrounds, including sales and management, opt to become CLS certified to increase their credibility/standards.

Core Responsibilities

A Certified Lubrication Specialist’s core responsibilities including evaluating and selecting lubricants to use and their purchases, conducts lube surveys, trains lubricators and assembles work lists, develops quality assurance and used lubricant analysis programmes, troubleshoots and problem solves lubrication issues, maintains records of all applications, as well as waste collection or disposal.

Requirements for Taking the CLS Exam

Three years of experience working in the field of lubrication.

Becoming CLS Certified

CLS certification is obtained by scoring 70 percent or higher on the designated exam that standardizes the body of knowledge for a Certified Lubrication Specialist.

Certification is valid for three years, after which individuals are required to recertify to maintain their CLS status.
