A sample copy of the Basic Hydraulics Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making it the perfect course takeaway.

Basic Hydraulics Learning System: 85-BH

Because hydraulic power is used in everything from automotive brakes to industrial robots, the skills taught by Amatrol’s Basic Hydraulics Learning System (85-BH) can open the doors to careers in various fields, such as manufacturing, transportation, agricultural, and construction. Basic Hydraulics training introduces the fundamental hydraulic principles, such as pressure and flow, while simultaneously teaching industry-relevant hydraulic skills; this signature Amatrol approach to curriculum reinforces both theory and practice, which produces a well-rounded understanding of the topic. As an example, after completing this training system, learners will not only be able to basic hydraulic operation, installation, design, and troubleshooting for various applications, but also understand concepts like flow rate versus cylinder speed and pressure versus cylinder force.

Basic Hydraulic training includes gauges, manifolds, cylinders, valves (relief/sequence, pressure reducing, check, directional control), flow meter, and hydraulic motor. These components are all industrial quality to ensure durability and help learners become better prepared for what they will encounter on the job. All Amatrol products are made from top-notch materials and carefully crafted (hand-welded, painted, and silk-screened) to create tough, attractive, well designed industrial training systems that facilitate learning and will serve teachers and students for years

Real World Industrial Hydraulic Applications

Within the Basic Hydraulics curriculum, learners begin by studying about the physical principles of hydraulics and how hydraulic mechanisms are used in real world applications. From this building block, learners begin hydraulic circuit construction, which gradually increases in difficulty and number of industry-standard components as the curriculum goes along. By taking this approach, learners will understand each component’s function in a circuit, which makes hydraulic troubleshooting easier in later lessons and on more advanced training systems. Learners will also study about pumps, gauges, hydraulic motors, cylinders, and numerous valves, including schematic symbols for each component, creating the ability to read and draw their own hydraulic schematics.

Expand Your System for Additional Learning Opportunities

When you’re ready to go beyond basic hydraulics, you can add optional learning systems to the basic hydraulics training system to extend its capabilities to explore more advanced concepts, such as Intermediate Hydraulics (85-IH), Advanced Hydraulics (85-AH), Electro-Hydraulics (85-EH), Intermediate Pneumatics (85-IP), Advanced Pneumatics (85-AP), Electro-Pneumatics (85-EP), and Electro-Fluid Power (85-EF). These optional systems integrate seamlessly with the basic fluid power training system and teach intermediate to advanced hydraulic and pneumatic concepts, including electrical relay control of hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

Amatrol’s eLearning curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia format that includes stunning 3D graphics and videos, voiceovers of all text, and interactive quizzes and exercises designed to appeal to learners with different learning styles. Virtual simulators also replicate hydraulic equipment in realistic detail to allow learners to practice skills in a virtual environment before transitioning to real equipment. This combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills solidifies understanding and creates a strong basis for pursuing more advanced skills.

The curriculum also features a virtual trainer option that allows learners to gain skills through realistic simulation before using the real equipment. The combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills solidifies understanding and creates a strong basis for pursuing more advanced skills.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.

Expand Your Fluid Power Training | eLearning and Training Systems

Amatrol’s line of fluid power training solutions, which consist of pneumatic and hydraulic systems, are second-to-none in depth of knowledge and skills and the breadth of different applications offered. These systems align with several Amatrol programs, such as: construction technology, industrial maintenance, iron and steel, oil and gas, and many more!
