The courses available at the Fluid Power Academy are based on the teaching methods of renowned hydraulics instructor, Rory S. McLaren, of the Fluid Power Training Institute.
The sections available here are part of the 10-section Practical Hydraulics (PH) Course. Upon successful completion of all 10 sections there will be a final exam which will, upon passing with a score of 85% or higher, award you with a printable FPA Fluid Power Certification certificate.
Most of the sections in this PH course contain multiple lessons, each with their own review quiz. After completion of each section, a comprehensive final test is available to take for those wishing to earn their personalized FPA Certification of Successful Completion. A final score of 85% or higher is required on all lesson quizzes and final section tests. Quizzes within each lesson can be taken twice but the final test at the end of each section can only be taken once.
If a score of 85% is not attained on the final test, the course can be re-purchased or, if the student feels confident, the re-Certification Test can be purchased, which allows them to take the final test without having to complete the entire course and quizzes again.
Each course has an expiration time limit which begins from the date it is purchased. Please make sure to set aside enough time to devote to completing the course before purchasing. The EXPIRATION time and AVERAGE TIME TO COMPLETE is shown just above the COURSE DESCRIPTION on the purchase page of each course section.
