Includes Textbook


APT’s Hydraulics for Electricians course is designed to give participants a thorough working knowledge of fluid power safety, components, systems and their integration with the electrical discipline.

Your 2 day Fluid Power for Electricians Training begins with safety awareness specific to working on and around industrial / mining hydraulics and pneumatics.

We will investigate fluid power principles as well as familiarise you with component identification and function. We explore each component individually and look at its purpose and effect in the system. We’ll also define the similarities, differences and integration of electrical and fluid power controls.

We’ll develop system schematics in the class room and then bring them to life using our circuit simulation software. In your practical session we will assemble and troubleshoot systems to reinforce the importance of equipment familiarity and contamination control.

Topics Covered

  • Hydraulic Safety & Awareness
  • Fluid power principles – Fluids, Flow, Pressure, Force

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.

Course Assessment

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.
