Overview

To our learners

The Corona Virus (COVID-19) outbreak is one of the most potent threats that is endangering human lives every moment. We are indebted to the healthcare workers battling the disease on the front lines with complete self-sacrifice for our wellbeing.

Hydraulic technology is a widely used technology that uses chemistry, engineering, applied science and other sciences to manufacture products and processes. It is used in many aspects of life from producing kitchen dishwashers, to mechanical engineering, which is why it is vital to be well versed with the hydraulic principles to have a successful career in mechanical engineering, construction, automotive and aerospace engineering. This Diploma in Hydraulic Principles – Level 4 has been developed exactly for this purpose and will get you upto speed with hydraulic principles in no time.

This course will give you insights into the Archimedes theory and the hydraulic principles to brief you on how the hydraulic technology works. You will get to learn about topics such as atmospheric pressure, geometric arguments, vacuum and hydrostatic paradox, after which this course will explore backflows and actual backflows to understand why it happens. This course is also focused on enlightening you about the NPSH (Net Positive Suction Head) and how to calculate it for a piping system.

A pump is the heart of a hydraulic system that converts mechanical energy to hydraulic energy. Therefore, this course has dedicated a few modules that will tutor you on the pump operation, various types of pumps and pump performance and curves. This course will also provide you with the opportunity to understand about devices such as coupling and mechanical seals that are essential in a hydraulic technology.

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 2 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.

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.
