IFPS Technical Director Tom Blansett will conduct a 12 week certification review training course for the Hydraulic Specialist Certification.
Recommended prerequisites – an engineering degree or 3-5 years hydraulic application experience. The IFPS Fluid Power Math course is highly reccomended prior to the start of this course.
Hydraulic Specialist (HS)applies fluid power theory and related knowledge to analyze power transmission and motion control requirements and designs appropriate industrial or mobile hydraulic systems to perform required tasks. Sizes and selects appropriate components, designs, or modifies complete circuit, prepares Bills of Materials, and specifies fluids, prime movers, and appropriate fluid conductors. A HS also designs appropriate instrumentation and control systems (hydraulic and electronic) for industrial and mobile machinery. The HS may become involved in sales activities, product warranty claims, and evaluation of prototype machinery. A HS may also become involved in instructional activities for Fluid Power Technicians and Fluid Power Mechanics concerning principles of hydraulics.
