CELEBRATING 30 YEARS IN THE COMPRESSED AIR INDUSTRY
We have recently hosted our 4th City & Guilds P111d Fundamentals in Pneumatics course here at our head office in Knowsley.
This three-day course was designed as a general introduction to the subject of pneumatics. The course aims to familiarise delegates with the design, construction and operation of pneumatic components. This includes the interpretation of circuit diagrams and symbols as well as the construction of control systems.
The training covers the use of compressed air for pneumatic control and as a signalling medium. A complete overview is given, covering compressors, storage, dryers and distribution as well as the design, construction and operation of a range of actuators, valves and ancillary equipment. The relevant ISO symbols are introduced and included in the circuit diagrams.
With a mixture of practical and theoretical learning, delegates were able to get up to date with today’s compressed air technology, and at the end, receive a qualification that is highly recognised throughout the industry.
Speaking to Shaun, one of the attendees of the course, he said: “The training is a real eye-opener. We use a lot of pneumatics in the company I work for, so it’s great to have an in-depth course that explores this topic. I really enjoyed the mixture of learning and the tutor was fantastic, so I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to expand their understanding of pneumatics.”
In line with current Covid-19 regulations, the course was limited to six spaces. We also had a number of measures in place to ensure the safety of all employees and delegates. This included disinfecting the pneumatic equipment after every use with a fogger, sanitising stations, temperature checks on entrance, mask wearing (unless exempt), social distancing and separate lunch boxes for each attendee.
Our feedback shows that 100% of participants would recommend this course.
We are looking to hold this training again at the end of the year, so keep your eyes peeled for the information!Back to Recent News
