Useful Educational Guides
Are you new to hydraulics or feel your knowledge is limited to a few topics that your company focuses on? If so, keep an eye out for this new book coming out in mid 2017 titled an "Introduction to practical hydraulic maintenance". According to the recently published recommendation by the BFPA all staff who work on hydraulic systems should be trained to at least CETOP level 1 or equivalent. The new book covers all the topics of the CETOP level 1 hydraulics qualification and includes a list of hydraulic training centres worldwide where you can get all important hands-on training.
The book is being written by Steve Skinner with the specialist topics on hydraulic testing written in conjunction with Webtec. We are looking to capture as much industry insight as possible, particularly from hydraulic trainers. If you would like to contribute or ensure your college or training center is included in the book, please contact email@example.com
