Introduction to Pneumatics Training

  • Hydraulic Terminology
  • Fundamentals of Hydraulics
  • Hydraulic Components in a system
  • Hydraulic Symbols
  • Hydraulic fluids
  • Safety with Hydraulic Components and systems
  • Contamination Control
  • Fault Finding Techniques
  • Maintenance Philosophies
  • Implementation of learning

The course content is designed for entry level pneumatics and starts with the fundamental basics of pneumatics so that students can better understand how pneumatics work and what factors affect the performance of pneumatic systems.

Objectives of this course

A final test will be conducted at the end of the course where the students must achieve a minimum pass rate of 70% in order to qualify for the Course Certificate. The purpose of this test is not to trick people into failing but rather to ensure that students have grasped what was taught to them and are able to put into practice what they have learnt into their workplace. Any person/s that do fail may write a second test at an agreed place and time with the trainer. Should they fail a second time they will unfortunately be required to attend the course again.

On successful completion of this course each delegate will have a better understanding of Pneumatics components and systems as well as be aware of what causes failures in components and therefore be in a better position to identify possible causes of contamination to assist in prevention of future failures.

In addition, they will also be able to carry out basic fault finding with a structured approach and learn to prove component failure before randomly making adjustments or changing our perfectly good components.

Requirements to attend the course

Attendees must:

  1. Be involved with your plant or equipment in a capacity of maintenance, planning, supervision or Engineering. (we try to avoid people attending that have no exposure to equipment using Pneumatics. For example, Accountants, receptionists or cleaners).
  2. Have basic understanding where Pneumatics are used in your plant or equipment.
  3. Be interested to learn and further their own knowledge.
  4. Be well rested and alert during the training.
  5. Participate in discussions and relate the training to their equipment and experience to benefit others with actual related feedback and associations.

What is included in the Course

  1. Each Delegate receives the relevant training course material.
  2. Stationery for note taking.
  3. Course Certificate for successful Candidates.
  4. A Wealth of knowledge and experience.
  5. Post Course Telephonic Technical support for 6 months.
