The Underwater Centre Launches New Hydraulics Course

Subsea training facility, The Underwater Centre, has introduced a new hydraulics course which will provide candidates an introduction to fluid power systems.

The Underwater Centre has developed the course to give candidates an introduction to the principles of fluid mechanics and provide hands-on experience using the Centre’s new training equipment.

The course deals with the concepts and practical application of oil-powered hydraulics within industry, typically encountered by technicians. Using a range of instructional techniques, candidates will gain experience of closed-loop and open-loop systems, the Centre ecplained.

Throughout the three-day course, students will learn about core concepts including: fluid principles, hydraulic symbols and notation, pressure, flow and directional control, energy storage, basic electrical theory, hose management, pressure testing and fittings and fault-finding.

Steve Ham, The Underwater Centre’s commercial director, said: “Our own research and experience has demonstrated that in order to maintain and enhance, through further training, the position of Scottish and UK-wide industries into the 21st Century, hydraulics will play a vital role in the training portfolio of an adaptable, flexible and innovative workforce.

“Hydraulics Level 1 is a three day course which is delivered in a contextual environment with hands-on practical exercises using our state-of-the-art training equipment.

“Our candidates will come away from this course with a solid grounding in hydraulics with experience which can be utilized across all industries.”
