GETTING STARTED WITH HYDRAULICS (GSH)
NEW AND FAST PACED - VERY POPULAR AND EXPANDED FOR 2019. THIS TRAINING IS QUALIFIED FOR AMT CERTIFICATION (optionally available) *
(GSH) 5 days - The US is undergoing the biggest turnover of its workforce in its history. Many of the newer American industrial maintenance workers are stepping into their positions with limited formal training or experience with manufacturing technology - electrical, mechanical and hydraulic fluid power.
This 5-day training course is the first step (step 1) in the development of competent maintenance mechanics and technical personnel that need to be capable of understanding, maintaining, troubleshooting and repairing complex hydraulic systems. This includes proper pump setup and commissioning techniques.
This first step hydraulic training seminar concentrates on developing students' in-depth understanding of industrial hydraulic fundamentals. These fundamentals include: characteristics of fluid pressure, fluid flow, fluid power, cylinder and hydraulic motor speed control, system heat production. Students will understand the purpose, function, operation and hydraulic schematic symbol for all major hydraulic valves and pumps. This training includes ample hands-on lab exercises to reinforce the classroom lecture. We want our students to come, prepared to be challenged in the classroom and the lab.
* This training course qualifies for AMT's Industrial Hydraulics Competency-based Certification. This certification is optional and without additional cost. Student evaluation at the end of the training course.
