INDUSTRY RECOGNISED COURSES FROM THE BFPA BFPA LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME The BFPA have for many years been passionate about raising standards within the fluid power market and industry as a whole, beginning with our Foundation Level programme. BFPA FOUNDATION LEVEL – HYDRAULICS The aim of the Foundation Level in Hydraulics is to provide candidates with the understanding of where Fluid Power – Hydraulics is used in modern society and its importance in the provision of power and motion control. Examples of topics covered include: Fundamental principles of all hydraulic systems Hydraulic symbols, pumps, fluid oil reservoirs, actuators Pressure, flow and direction control, contamination control, hose technology, maintenance procedures BFPA FOUNDATION LEVEL – PNEUMATICS It is acknowledged that in today’s world it is rare for pneumatics to be applied as a single technology and invariably electrical /electronic controls are included as well. We therefore recommend that a basic introduction to electronics is considered alongside this foundation level pneumatics programme. Examples of topics covered include: Basic fundamental principles for pneumatic systems Pneumatic symbols, compressors, airline components, actuators, tube & pipework Pressure, flow and direction control Electrical principles, techniques and symbol Maintenance procedures For more information about any of our courses or to check availability please visit: Please call 01608 647900or email BFPA FOUNDATION LEVEL – ELECTRONIC CONTROLS Engineers need to be equipped with at least the basics of electronic and control technology in order to embrace their ever-increasing role as part of Integrated Fluid Power Systems. Examples of topics covered include: Basic principles equating to fluid power analogies where possible Electronic components and their applications. An introduction to control systems Power supply methods Magnetism and electro-magnetism Electrical symbols, test and measurement, motors and motor control Cables and termination methods Maintenance procedures 19100 Half Page Foundation Advert_AW.qxp_Layout 1 16/06/2023 11:13 Page 1 Speci cally engineered products designed for use in a wide range of hydraulic applications including braking systems on tractors.
