Hose Training Overview


Foundation Safety Course

This course has been developed to provide an introduction into hydraulic hose, connectors and the safe assembly of these components for industry use. The course is classroom based, during the day the attendee will gain a knowledge and understanding of safe hose assembly and if applied will only enhance the safety within the hydraulic industry and the attendee.



Hose Assembly Skills Course

The skills course will take the candidate through the many techniques and considerations essential for the safe production of a quality hose assembly and ultimately leading to installation. This two day course involves both the theoretical and practical elements in working with hose and connectors. During the 2 days the attendees will be trained and assessed to an industry level of ability in working with hose and connectors.



Hose Integrity, Inspection & Management

This BFPA training course covers key themes during its one-day duration: hose life expectancy; risk analysis; competence by way of a robust competence assurance system; identify, inspect & record; hose register – recording of a hose assembly prior to it going into service; and visual hose assembly (installation) inspection check list. The attendees will be assessed during the day with the appropriate level of pass certification being awarded, e.g. distinction, merit, or pass.



Small Bore Tubing Integrity Course

This course has been developed by BFPA technical experts to give candidates a valuable understanding of the complexity surrounding small bore tubing and compression fittings, The training course covers generic manufacturers twin ferrule compression fittings, thread awareness, tube and pipe differences and the preparation process, tube manipulation (bending) principles, common installation and routing techniques.



Hydrostatic Proof Pressure Testing

This one day pressure testing course has been developed by the BFPA to enable the attendee to hydrostatically test a given component. The course centres around the testing of flexible hose and rigid tube and during the day attendees will receive both theoretical understanding and practical experience of procedures.
