Introduction to Hydraulics for Engineers
Cost $1250.00 ex gst
Duration 17 hours = 2 Days
Maximum of 6 students
Upon completion students will receive a certificate of completion
Hydraulics usually comes under the mechanical engineering discipline – only it is not taught in the qualifications. Engineers are not always required to design the hydraulic system as this is left to applications engineers and specialists – but is is very useful for the mechanical design engineers to have an understanding of the limits of hydraulics and the basic concepts.
This course takes students through the basic design considerations when selecting hydraulics to move or control a load.
At the end of this course students will be able to interpret basic schematics, understand the principles of operation of a system and easily communicate with hydraulics suppliers and designers in the machine design process.
- Hydraulic Components
- Component Sizing
- Fluid Power Calculations

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.
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.
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.
Successful participants will receive a Certificate of Completion.
It is preferred that participants should have equivalent industry experience.
