Advanced Diploma in Fluid Power

Kyle Training

Are you looking for a promotion, maybe even wanting to move up into management? 

You’ve been putting in the hard yards, refining your skills onsite, showing up when you are needed and really being there for your team.

But still you feel like your efforts aren’t being noticed or that there is a missing piece. 

Unfortunately, for most higher level and management positions machine knowledge isn’t enough to take you to the next level.

So what more do I "need to do?"

Well in these leadership roles oftentimes you will find yourself working to optimise procedures and systems, as well as ensuring the safety of your team onsite. 

You will become the go-to person whenever a problem arises and you’ll need to have the skills to solve these problems quickly and usually without having the time to consult another person. And these issues might not always be with machines, they may be with clashing maintenance schedules or within your team itself, they may even be design flaws where you will need to read the schematics and rework the system.

Making your head spin?

Don’t give up on your dreams just yet, there is a straightforward path for you to pick up all the skills you need to be the perfect candidate for these roles. You may even be participating in the selection process right now and want the upper hand on other candidates. 

That’s where the Advanced Diploma In Fluid Power comes in! 

This program is the highest level of training you can complete prior to spending years at university completing your bachelors degree. 

This course not only expands your design knowledge but also your leadership knowledge. 

It’s much less on the tools with a lot more done using computers, simulations, equations, and paperwork.

So if you feel like now is your time to down tools and really step into the next stage of your career this program will prepare you to do exactly that.

But what can this look like for you?
