CETOP 2: Combined: Industrial Hydraulics Valves & Fluids + Power Pack & Actuators (5 days)



At the course Industrial Hydraulics Valves & Fluids, the participant will receive basic theoretical knowledge and understanding of hydraulic systems and components, in order to perform the maintenance, faultfinding and repair of hydraulic low and high-pressure systems.


At the end of the course, the participant should know the physical laws and their application. The participant will understand more complex hydraulic systems design, and can read advanced diagrams and symbols. Furthermore, the participant can design hydraulic systems, and perform the adjustment of them when needed. The participant will understand the requirements for cleanliness for the equipment used, and how the requirements are met in their installation, operation and maintenance.

The emphasis is on what each participant can achieve in terms of understanding of personal safety when working with hydraulics.

Target groups

Staff who have completed Power hydraulics - CETOP 1 or have equivalent skills.

Learning Methods

The course is a mixture of theory and exercises in which the theory will be tested in practice. Through practical exercises the participant will receive hands-on experience of the hydraulic systems and how the components work.

Content: Valves & Fluids (day 1-3):

The course includes the following topics:
- Fundamental principles.
- Hydraulic system components.
- Valve types.
- Fluids and contamination control.
- Hydraulic circuits and control functions.

Content: Power Pack & Actuators (day 4-5):

The course includes the following topics:
- Fundamental principles.
- Hydraulic system components.
- Pumps.
- Reservoirs and auxiliary equipment.
- Accumulators.
- Actuators.
- Hydraulic circuits and control functions.

Course duration

The course duration is 5 days, from 0830-1715 all days. 


The course does not includes an exam. When the course is completed, the following certificates are issused: CETOP 2: Industrial Hydraulics Valves & Fluids and CETOP 2: Industrial Hydraulics Power Pack & Actuators.


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.
