CETOP 1 Certification TEST



On the CETOP 1 certification test, the participant will demonstrate basic theoretical knowledge and understanding of hydraulic systems and components, in order to assist in the maintenance and repair of hydraulic low and high-pressure systems. Furthermore, the participant will demonstrate ability to construct hydraulic systems with piping and hoses based on complete hydraulic diagrams and connected system descriptions.

At the certification test the holder of the certificate has furthermore demonstrated an acceptable understanding of personal safety when working with hydraulics.

Target groups: Staff who have some experience working with hydraulic systems. As a minimum, the course CETOP 1: Power Hydraulics should be fulfilled prior to the test.

Course duration: The test duration is one examination day from 0830-1600. 


The certification test starts with 0.5 hour introduction to the day, followed by a 2 hours written exam, which must be passed with at least 60% correct answers, and a 4 hours practical hydraulic assignment including among other subjects pipe work, which is assessed as passed or failed. 

When the exam is satisfactorily completed, a Power Hydraulics - CETOP 1 certificate is issued.



SIMAC will provide a coat and goggles, but you will need to bring working clothes and safety shoes, since we are using our hydraulic lab for exercises.
