Description
Overview
Online Fluid Power Math Training - If math is a stumbling block for you, or if you are preparing to take a certification test, this online at-your-own-pace training module takes the IFPS Math Book and brings it to life! A recent study found that more than 68% of participants cited a lack of confidence as the biggest stumbling block to a student’s ability to succeed in math. If math is a stumbling block for you, or if you are preparing to take a certification test, this online at-your-own-pace training module takes the IFPS Math Book and brings it to life!
Dan Helgerson, CFPAI, will teach fundamental fluid power math skills and build on that foundation to explain the calculation of more complex formulas. Each section includes step-by-step video instructions on how to solve complex fluid power math problems.
