Purpose of Seminar:
In the course, you’ll learn to focus on the troubleshooting process and the inspection and testing tasks that are part of a systematic approach to locating malfunctions and their underlying causes. Students will become aware of decision-making processes, which is the first important step to a solid troubleshooting procedure. And several hands-on lab demonstrations will allow the students to troubleshoot real world system problems. Every application discussed will be totally dissected in a state-of-the-art animated program so that the students can see what happens when they recalibrate pressure, flow, torque, load or even upsize and downsize components.
No longer will you need to guess or try to fix problems by merely substituting parts. When it comes time to fix something after attending this seminar, you’ll know exactly what to do, why you are doing it and be confident that it works!
What you will learn:
- Create and match a variety of hydraulic applications to the work to be performed
- Properly test and inspect hydraulic systems
- Diagnose system versus component problems
- Distinguish problem “symptoms” from the actual “cause”
- Apply a common-sense, systematic approach to troubleshooting
- Evaluate the cause and effect of changing or re-sizing system components
- Recommend and implement change towards fixing problems
Who should take this course:
This course is designed for anyone who needs to understand hydraulic components and systems for work in industrial and mobile equipment applications.

About our Instructors:
"Real World Training...for Real World needs"is not just our slogan, but also our mission statement. At American Trainco, we approach our students as if they were our own employees. We instruct them and guide them in practical knowledge that allows them to immediately go back to their workplace and apply what they have learned. Our instructors are seasoned veterans with years of real world experience, and the students who attend our seminars often get more from a single week of training than an entire year of reading textbooks or watching videos. How do we know? They tell us.
Anyone can teach theory, but there simply is no substitute for experience. What sets American Trainco apart is our ability to communicate that experience into the brains of our students. As one attendee told us at the end of his two-day training course, "I think I can go back to work now and teach the veterans a thing or two."
