Who should attend

The course is designed for engineers and technicians who are working in industries and factories as a responsible for design or maintain hydraulic units to keep them aware with latest technology in those fields and also to improve their skills.

About the course

The course will concentrate on how the participants will learn the basic hydraulic components, how they work, and their function in a hydraulic circuit. They will be able to understand and interpret hydraulic schematics, and implement safe work practices.

Gain the basic skills needed to be a proactive and effective systems troubleshooter. Learn how to make minor, cost saving repairs by seeing and understanding the operation of various components. You will practice preventive maintenance techniques that will reduce premature system failure

Also, it provides participants with full appreciation of the different types of hydraulic systems and their characteristics. Also, provides participants with understanding of hydraulic system design, operation and maintenance.

This comprehensive training program consists of some video clips (Demonstration) that train students to understand the principles of hydraulic system operation, as well as how to operate, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair a variety of hydraulic equipment.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Read and understand the hydraulic circuit diagrams
  • Understand the Application of hydraulic systems
  • Understand the function, construction and operation of the main hydraulic control components
  • Create and match a variety of hydraulic applications to the work to be performed
  • Properly test and inspect hydraulic systems
  • Diagnose system versus component problems
  • Distinguish problem “symptoms” from the actual “cause”
  • Apply a common-sense, systematic approach to troubleshooting
  • Evaluate the cause and effect of changing or re-sizing system components
  • Recommend and implement change towards fixing problems
