Details

Electrohydraulics is one of the fastest growing fields in mining, construction and industry.

Electrical skills are the next step for students who have completed the 5 or 6 day courses. Students will learn about solenoid valves, sensors and interface with control systems.

As the push continues for machines and equipment that are safer, more productive, more efficient, require less maintenance, are easier to operate, electrohydraulics are being used more and more to achieve these goals.

This course is aimed at engineers, hydraulic technicians, fitters and plant mechanics who are involved with electrohydraulics.

It is designed to help bridge the gap between electrics and hydraulics to assist with installing, repairing, adjusting and fault finding fluid power systems that use electrical and electronic control and monitoring equipment.

At the end of this course students will be able to troubleshoot electric controls on fluid power systems to repair or commission them.

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.
