The Diploma in Hydraulic Principles – Level 4 is designed to educate learners on the fundamentals of hydraulic technology. Hydraulics refers to the mechanical function that operates by the force of liquid pressure. It is a technology that uses engineering, chemistry, applied science, and other sciences in order to design and manufacture products and processes. Mechanical movements in hydraulic based systems are generated through the contained and pumped liquid. Hydraulics is a very essential technology that is used in many aspects of our lives from kitchen dishwashers to mechanical engineering.

The foundation of all hydraulic based equipment are the hydraulic principles. These principles are the factors that determine the proper manufacturing and designing of machineries and equipment. Knowledge of hydraulic principles is mandatory to embark on a successful career in mechanical engineering. The Diploma in Hydraulic Principles – Level 4 is designed to provide aspiring mechanical engineers and mechanical professionals with insight into hydraulic principles.

The Diploma in Hydraulic Principles – Level 4 will first help learners get an idea on the Archimedes and hydraulic principles. The course will cover topics such as atmospheric pressure, geometric arguments, vacuum and hydrostatic paradox. Backflows, actual backflow events and the reason for backflows will also be taught in detail. Have a clear understanding of various types of pumps and pump operation. The course will introduce learners to NPSH and pump performance and curves. Learners will be educated on devices such as coupling and mechanical seals needed in hydraulics.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Global Edulink to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
