  • Why You should take this seminar

    The success or failure of any fluid power system depends on four factors: design, installation, start-up (commissioning), and maintenance. Hose and tube assemblies are a vital consideration in each of these factors as well as system and operating personnel safety.

    All Connector & Conductor certifications require a three (3)-hour written and a three (3)-hour job performance (hands-on) test.

    NOTE: Participants must register with the IFPS (International Fluid Power Society) at least 30-days prior to class dates.
