Animated Hydraulic Circuits

Visually seeing a circuit perform along with a description of operation can increase the comprehension of a particular component’s operation and its function within the circuit.

These animated presentations can be used by:

  • Anyone interested learning component function and circuit operation.
  • Instructors to assist in hydraulic specialist certification review training.
  • Individuals to enhance their preparation to take the hydraulic specialist certification test.

Online Hydraulic Safety Awareness Training

IFPS offers online self-paced hydraulic safety awareness training courses. They provide an awareness of hydraulic hazards in the workplace, in-depth reviews of potential exposures to injury from hydraulic systems, and ways to reduce risk and eliminate hazards for workers, equipment, companies, and the environment.

IFPS offers four online hydraulic safety awareness training courses:

  • Exposure Level
  • High Risk Maintenance Level
  • Hydraulic Safety in Construction
  • Fluid Injection Awareness

Online Training

Each self-paced course delivers a broad-based understanding of the most important fluid power subject matter concepts. Courses begin with the basics: physics laws, systems basics and design, basic analysis, and basic components. The courses demonstrate how these systems apply to fluid power and how they interact with each other.

Each training course features 12 to 16 hours of trade-specific e-training that uses simulations, assessments, quizzes, tests, learning labs, and more.

Completing online training courses does not result in IFPS certification. However, completing courses better prepares you for certification tests.
