This fall, Hydraulic Systems will be offered as part of the Industrial Technology Program in the Continuing Education Department. Presentation of this course involves a combination of online interactive reading material, hands-on laboratory exercises utilizing actual components and classroom lecture to insure a thorough understanding of the subject material. Progression through each subject is detailed in a syllabus, outlining online reading sections, lab exercises and the corresponding dates the material is scheduled to be covered. Students are expected to be prepared for classes by reading the online material to be covered in advance of the classes. Progression through each course will be maintained as outline in the syllabus; additional opportunities will be available to make-up scheduled work. Once all reading material and laboratory exercises have been completed, a certification test will be administered. Upon successful completion of the test, competency certification for the course will be issued.
