Course Overview

This course delivers an interactive training experience designed to help trainees understand the various components found in a typical hydraulic system and how these components function and interact with each other. It provides maintenance personnel and production operators etc. with the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out maintenance tasks on hydraulic systems.
A practical approach is taken throughout this course with participants gaining valuable “hands-on” experience on training equipment utilizing industry-standard components designed to simulate industrial systems.
