The IFPS announced that it has officially launched an online instructor-lead Hydraulic Specialist Certification Review Training course.
Tom Blansett, CFPAI, IFPS Technical Director, will facilitate this 12-week virtual/online training course to help candidates prepare for the Hydraulic Specialist Certification test. Classes will be held Thursdays from 10:00 AM -1:00 PM EST beginning on March 9, 2023 (skipping March 16). The registration fee includes the training and the testing fee. Three additional online pretests are also included with this workshop.
Throughout the training program, each Outcome contained within the study manual will be explained in detail. Many animated hydraulic circuit schematics are shown to aid in comprehension and understanding. All Outcome review questions will be explained along with a detailed explanation of how the answer was found.
This training is limited to 15 participants. Participants can take the course only or pay for the course and the testing.
Recommended prerequisites include an engineering degree or 3-5 years of hydraulic application experience. The IFPS Fluid Power Math course (coming soon) is highly recommended prior to the start of this course.
Recommended publications for this training course:
- Hydraulic Specialist Study Manual*
- Fluid Power Reference Handbook*
- Fluid Power Math Handbook*
*Select the bundle during registration to receive a discount price on these publications.
Additionally, the IFPS has always offered access to free safety posters from the International Hydraulic Safety Authority, but members can now access free safety posters created by the IFPS itself.
Posters are available to members only and are available for printing for free. Topics include hydraulic injection injury, lockout/tagout, cylinder pressure, eye safety, and hydraulic systems. More poster topics will be added throughout the year.
Additionally, IHSA posters are also available for download, on a variety of topics, such as hose charging, fluid spray, safety blocks, high-temperature burns, and more.
IFPS membership is required for download.
