APT’s Flagship Fluid Power Course.

APT’s 8 day Fluid Power course equips participants with the know-how to work safely and productively with hydraulic and pneumatic machinery.

The course provides investment leverage for Employers enabling:

> maximum safety awareness to reduce risk and maintain compliance
> minimum equipment down time to improve plant productivity

Participants will benefit from industry’s best practice training, improved and accelerated knowledge transfer and improved employment scope.

The APT 8 day course targets Mechanical Trades persons who are familiar with Fluid Power Systems and are motivated to extend their knowledge and qualifications as well as receive recognition of their current skills.

How we work.

APT provide flexible training and an ongoing framework to build-on or formalise your existing skills and knowledge. In our courses, the use of advanced simulation and real world practices ensure optimal outcomes.

APT deliver training in a friendly, relaxed and comfortable learning and assessment environment. You can be assured that it’s to the best of our ability to support any special needs/requirements you may have with your learning.

Course Information.

Training and assessment is usually completed at the APT Training Centre at Toronto NSW, however the course can be delivered at your own workplace if a full class is enrolled.

In such circumstances we bring the complete service to you including training simulations and fluid power equipment.

The course is designed to be completed within 12 months, however candidates are able to complete this qualification in a shorter time frame. This will depend on the advice and guidance of APT’s qualified trainers and assessors and your availability to attend scheduled classes.

Course Assessment.

The Units of Competency in this course are Nationally Recognised, so there a number of assessment tasks that you will be required to complete in order to meet the required criteria/standard.

Your trainer and assessor will clearly explain the assessment process to you and support you where necessary to ensure you have a full understanding of the process prior to commencing.

Some methods used to assess your competence include written questionnaires, verbal questions, third party reports, self assessment, log books or work journals, verified CV, workbook activities and certificate recognition of prior learning.

Course Outcomes.

Successful participants will receive a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment for the 4 Units of Competency which form part of the MEM40119 – Certificate IV Engineering (Fluid Power).
