If your employee troubleshoots or installs fluid power systems, we recommend the Technician classification. A Technician certification test consists of a 3-hour, multiple choice, written (pen and paper or online proctored) test and a three (3)-hour job performance (hands-on) test.

Mobile Hydraulic
Technician 

Mobile hydraulics refers to all types of hydraulic machines that are mobile and used in various types of environments (construction, agricultural, aerospace forestry machinery.)

 

Written test contents:

  • Maintenance

  • Field Repairs

  • Shop Repairs

  • Troubleshooting 

  • Full outline
     

Job Performance test contents:

The Mobile Hydraulic (MHT) applies fluid power theory and related knowledge to test and troubleshoot operational and prototype mobile hydraulic and electrohydraulic systems and applications under the guidance of an engineer. An MHT prepares and revises mobile schematics, performs basic component sizing calculations, develops, and documents test procedures and can supervise system installations and commissioning.

Industrial Hydraulic Technician

Industrial hydraulics refers to a wide range of hydraulic machinery used in manufacturing processes (printing, metal forming, entertainment, wood processing, injection molding.)

Written test contents:

  • Hydraulic Symbols

  • Statics

  • Components

  • Controls

  • Basic Circuits

  • Full outline
     

Job Performance test contents:

The Industrial Hydraulic Technician  (IHT) 

applies fluid power theory and related knowledge to test and troubleshoot operational and prototype industrial hydraulic and electrohydraulic systems and applications under the guidance of an engineer. An IHT prepares and revises industrial hydraulic schematics, performs basic component sizing calculations, develops, and documents test procedures and can supervise system installations and commissioning.

Pneumatic
Technician

Pneumatics are used across manufacturing to power factory automation systems and is typically seen in sectors like materials handling and packaging, oil & gas and power generation industries, and food & beverage.

 

Written test contents:

  • Pneumatic Symbols

  • Gas Law

  • Maintenance

  • Components

  • Controls

  • Basic Circuits

  • Troubleshooting

  • Full outline

Job Performance test contents:

The ​Pneumatic Technician (PT) applies pneumatic and vacuum theory and related knowledge to test and troubleshoot operational and prototype pneumatic and vacuum systems and applications under the guidance of an engineer. A PT prepares and revises pneumatic and vacuum system schematics, performs basic component sizing calculations, develops and documents test procedures and can supervise system installations and commissioning.
