In Level I Basic Hydraulics, participants will learn how to read and construct basic circuits using actual components.  This course includes hydraulic safety, basic theory, and symbol reading, while allowing participants to practice hands-on circuit development activities on state-of-the-art trainers.  In Level II Troubleshooting Hydraulics, participants  will learn how to correctly identify malfunctioning components in circuits.  Also included is the safe and proper selection of hydraulic diagnostic equipment and the methods used to troubleshoot faulty circuits.  By learning how to "field test" circuits and eliminate costly "trial and error" component replacement, labor and material savings can be realized.  A certificate is awarded upon completion.
