Automated Fluid Power I Certificate ReviewThis certificate provides the student with an understanding of the function, operation, and application of common components used in fluid power circuits and systems. It also provides the student with an understanding of how fluid power components and accessories are placed together to create circuits and systems for powering industrial machines. The major emphasis is on pneumatics with a lesser emphasis on hydraulics and vacuum systems. Electro-fluid power troubleshooting is emphasized. This certificate is targeted to mechanics, technicians and technologists who will be involved in the application, installation, modification or troubleshooting of fluid power systems in packaging and manufacturing environments. Upon completion of this course and through a unique industry partnership with PMMI, students will be able to take the Fluid Power I Certificate test and have the opportunity to earn a nationally recognized certificate while at Hennepin Technical College. This course is aimed at entry level technicians who may be involved in the assembly, test, startup, troubleshooting, maintenance, repair or upgrade of basic packaging machinery modules. This is a review course and it is assumed the student has taken previous automation courses or has basic knowledge of the topics to be covered.3ARET2105 or Instructor approvalARET2360View
