    Hydraulic Safety Online Courses
    The AFPS in conjunction with the International Hydraulic Safety Authority is now offering online hydraulic safety courses to all state society members and personnel employed in the Australian Fluid Power and allied industries. You are not required to be a member of the AFPS to enroll in any of these courses.
    The courses are designed to focus on awareness of the unique safety issues applicable to personnel working within our industry and are beneficial to both experienced and inexperienced employees alike.

    Hydraulic Specialist Online Course 

    The AFPS in conjunction with the USA based International Fluid Power Society is now offering a online Hydraulic Specialist course which can be taken in stages over twelve months.
    The course prepares students for the internationally recognized IFPS Hydraulic Specialist Certificate which can be taken and awarded in Australia.
    Whether you are studying for the Hydraulic Specialist Certification test or simply want to enhance your existing hydraulics skills in a convenient and flexible environment, the interactive Hydraulic Specialist Course is here to help.

    The IFPS have taken their Hydraulic Specialist Certification Study Manual from traditional print into a full colour, animated, interactive online learning platform. Schematics are colour-coded and animated full-color graphics.
    Chapter review questions - interactive (you’ll immediately know if you’ve grasped the chapter information)
    Voice-over text for auditory learners.
    Three additional online pre-tests safety and energy tips throughout.
    Contains additional explanations not covered in the printed manual.
    You are not required to be a member of the AFPS to enroll in this course.

    Animated Hydraulic Circuits Course.

    Overview
    The circuit schematics found in this course are designed to illustrate an operational or theoretical hydraulic system showing the interaction of components to achieve a desired output.

    This course is designed as a means of reviewing or reinforcing concepts to test candidates and cannot possibly cover every application of a component within a hydraulic circuit. Fluid Power system design experts developed the circuits in this course that are intended to represent a specific application or the use of a component within a circuit to illustrate the typical usage.

    What you will download
    Color-coded, animated, and voiceover .mp4 and .wmv files of each circuit operation using ANSI recognized color designations. Each circuit shows the sequence of operations within the hydraulic circuit as well as the flow paths during operation.

    Key bullet points for each circuit from Study Manuals to assist in the understanding of the components’ function and interaction within the circuit. 

    You will download the following animated circuits:
    Accumulator Circuit Operation, Boom Raising Circuit, Brake Valve Circuit, Brake Valve Circuit with Check Valve, Circuit for the Two Cylinders Application, Circuit Schematic with Check Valves, Closed Center Steering, Closed Circuit Accumulator Circuit, Closed Circuit Hydrostatic Transmission, Counterbalance Valve in a Press Circuit, Cylinder, Motor Circuit Cylinder 1, Motor Circuit 2, Float Center Spool used with Pilot Operated Check Valves, Full-Time Regenerative Circuit B Port Blocked, High-Low Circuit, Intensifier System with an Air-Oil Return Tank, Load Reaction Center Steering,  Load Sense Schematic, Loader Boom and Bucket Circuit, Open and Closed Circuit Pumps - Test Bench Circuit,  Open Center Steering, Part-Time Regenerative Circuit with Bleed, Part-Time Regenerative Circuit with Counterbalance Valve, Pilot Operated Check Valve Application, Pilot Operated Directional Control Valve Circuit, Press Circuit, Pressure Reducing Valve, Pump Test, Regenerative Circuit with Regen Position in the DCV, Sequence Valve Circuit, Setting a Pressure Reducing Valve, Synchronous Circuit with a Displacement-type Flow Divider, Synchronous Circuit with Cylinders Connected in Series, Tandem Center Circuit Equipped with a Relief Valve, Unloading Relief Valve,  Unloading Valve in a High-Low Pump Circuit, Various Pressure Gauges within a Circuit
