Common Name: Basic Hydraulics
Basic Hydraulics (Hydraulics 1) provides candidates with a knowledge and understanding of hydraulic principles, components, symbols and circuit diagrams. This includes:
• Hydraulic actuators – linear actuators, rotary actuator motors, hydraulic actuator calculations
• Hydraulic pumps – gear pumps, vane pumps, piston pumps
• Hydraulic control valves – directional control valves, check valves, flow control valves
• Hydraulic pressure control valves – relief, unloading, sequence, counterbalance, brake, pressure reducing valves
• Appropriate calculations
• Fault finding
Units of Competency

OR the equivalent which includes a certificate in:
You are still eligible to attend the Basic Hydraulics Course if you do not hold any of the above-mentioned units or certificates but will only receive a Statement of Attendance. This will enable you to continue onto the Hydraulics 2 course as well.
Training and assessment is conducted at the South Pacific Employment Institute facility Portion 474, Idubada Road, Idubada, Port Moresby. Upon arrangement, training and courses can be conducted onsite at the premises of industry clients.
Basic Hydraulics is delivered to an Australian standard, and participants will receive a statement of Maintain hydraulic system components (MEM18020B) with recognition of completion of Australian Units of Competencies.
Duration: 5 Days
Hydraulic systems are incorporated into many types of industrial machines and equipment. A knowledge of hydraulics is essential in the maintenance and repair of mechanical systems.
Basic Hydraulics is for persons with mechanical and/or electrical trade background that are seeking to improve their skills and knowledge of hydraulic systems.
