Course Description

Hydraulics 3.0 course is the third course in our series, which can lead to achieving MEM40119 Certificate IV in Engineering (Fluid Power), when completed in conjunction with our other courses and prerequisites. When combined with, Hydraulics 1.0, Hydraulics 2.0 and Hydraulics 4.0 (plus fulfilling the prerequisites), contribute to the total units of competencies required for the MEM40119 Certificate IV in Engineering (Fluid Power).

This course is designed to support the learners’ needs in understanding more advanced hydraulic systems, as well as a complete overview of the five basic hydraulic systems.

The course combines book and instruction based learning with practical exercises and assessments utilising our purpose built, state of the art Hydraulic Training Rigs.
