Hydraulics 4.0 course is the fourth course in a series that builds towards MEM40105 Certificate IV in Engineering (Fluid Power). This course is designed to be completed after our Hydraulics 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, in conjunction with holding the relevant Certificate III and meeting the prerequisite requirements.
When combined with, Hydraulics 1.0, Hydraulics 2.0 and Hydraulics 3.0 (plus fulfilling the prerequisites), contribute to the total units of competencies required for the MEM40105 Certificate IV in Engineering (Fluid Power).
This course is designed to support the learner’s 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.
To be eligible to receive certification (a Statement of Attainment) for Hydraulics 4.0, the learner must demonstrate that prerequisites have been met. The prerequisites can be seen below.
