HYDRAULIC TRAINING COURSES

COURSE 650: 4 DAYS: Max 4 Candidates

This course provides maintenance personnel and production operators etc with the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out maintenance tasks on industrial hydraulic systems.

PARTICIPANTS

This course is suitable for anyone who wishes to work on or maintain industrial hydraulic systems. No prior knowledge of hydraulics is necessary.

COURSE PRESENTATION

Participants gain useful practical experience on purpose-built training rigs which make use of typical commercial components and are designed specifically to simulate the hydraulic systems found in industry. Comprehensive course notes are provided.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

On completion of the course, participants will be able to

Successful completion of the course leads to the award of the Technical Training Solutions competence certificate 650: Hydraulics.

What do candidates on the Hydraulic training courses actually do?

The Hydraulic training courses provide an extensive understanding of hydraulic systems and components. Candidates investigate the devices used to control the pressure, flow and direction of linear and rotary actuators.

The course notes are extensive and explain the various devices used in engineering applications. The course takes a practical approach avoiding any unnecessary mathematics. Some sample pages from the course notes give an indication of this approach.

Safety is emphasized throughout the course and reinforced when practical exercises are carried out. Candidates are provided with a selection of hydraulic components (with clearly marked terminals) which they use to build various hydraulic circuits.
