This training course is Step 3 of AMT's PA State recognized INDUSTRIAL FLUID POWER (IFP) Program [see link below for Program information].

*(HOH) - 3rd step (Level 3) industrial hydraulics training course - 5 days - This is a unique way to advance your skills beyond Industrial Hydraulic Principles. The goal of this 3rd level hydraulic maintenance course is to develop maintenance personnel with advanced hydraulic skills. Students achieve this advanced capability with training that is centered in the lab. During the week, students will be presented with a variety of hydraulic valves and they will evaluate several hydraulic circuits. Students will determine if the valve is functioning properly and if the circuit in which the valve is used is adjusted properly. They will be guided through this process of discovery of valve function and circuit operation. Lab exercises are challenging. The same process of discovery and understanding is applied to pumps and variable displacement pump controls, accumulators and electro-proportional hydraulic valves. Students will learn all of the (often used) variable displacement pump controls and their proper adjustment. Students will increase their hydraulic schematic reading skills. Much of this fast-paced course is lab oriented - hands on. There is, however, classroom time. This training course begins where the Industrial Hydraulic Principles (IHP) course ends.

* This training course qualifies for AMT's Industrial Fluid Power (IFP) Program.  Enrollment in the IFP Program is optional and without additional cost but must occur in the GSH course.  Student evaluation at the end of the training course.
