PNEUMATIC TRAINING

COURSE 660: 4 DAYS: Max 8 Candidates

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

PARTICIPANTS

Suitable for anyone who is required to maintain industrial pneumatic systems. No prior knowledge of pneumatic or electrical principles is necessary.

COURSE PRESENTATION

A practical approach is taken throughout this course with participants gaining valuable ‘hands-on’ experience on training equipment utilising industry-standard components designed to simulate industrial systems. 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 660: Pneumatics.

What do candidates on the Pneumatic training course actually do?

We begin by looking at the various symbols used to describe pneumatic components and get the candidates to think about how these devices would be used in various applications. We have a range of cut-away demonstration parts which the candidates use to understand how the devices function (and the faults that they might develop).

We use large magnetic symbols to ISO 1219-1 of pneumatic components (which stick onto whiteboards) so that our instructors can explain how the components function and how they are interconnected to create useful systems on the Pneumatic training course A selection of our sectioned pneumatic components - candidates gain an understanding of the functionality by looking at these and appreciating what may go wrong with each component

The candidates are then given the task of thinking about how these components would be used in various applications, without getting involved in all the mathematics and physics associated with this technology. Some extracts from the course notes for the Pneumatic training course help to demonstrate this approach:
