This course is the entry level Nationally Recognised unit of competency for trades who are required to only service basic hydraulic equipment in mining, agriculture, earthmoving or transport industries.

Students learn about servicing hydraulic systems, oil changing, hose replacement and basic component repair. Cylinder repairs are a mandatory component of this course.

This course covers the requirements of MDG41 Clause 7.1.1 competence of personnel to work on hydraulic systems on mine sites.

This course is not recommended for students who wish to gain further qualifications in the fluid power stream as this unit is not a part of the Certificate 4 Engineering Fluid Power course.

Students who have completed MEM18020B Maintain Hydraulic Systems components and or  MEM18021B Maintain Hydraulic System have already exceeded the requirements of this unit.
