The official online exams are conducted by the International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML) and can be taken in a private room in your residence or a private space where you are alone in the room.

You apply and pay for the exam with ICML and then will be directed to the online testing platform to establish a customer profile and confirm a time/date for the exam session. At the scheduled time/date, the candidate will log back into the online platform to take the exam, which will be monitored by a live, remote proctor.

Make the most of your Training with ICML Certification!

Your chances of passing the MLA exam are greater if you take it as soon as possible after our OilDoc Certification Course!
