26 February, 2018

In 2009, BFPA launched two brand new training courses: the one-day Foundation Course in Working Safely with Hydraulic Hose and Connectors, and the two-day Hose Assembly Skills Training Programme in response to market demand. Numbers have grown each year since then, with 2014 seeing the introduction of the Hose Integrity, Inspection and Management Course and the Small Bore Tubing Course and in 2017 a one-day refresher course for Hose Assembly Skills Training Programme was also introduced.

BFPA’s series of short training courses are designed to increase skills and improve safety for people working with hydraulic systems, from system designers to field engineers, to machine operators and hose-makers and are all helping to raise standards in the industry.

BFPA and BFPA’s Approved Training Partners have now trained over 6,000 people from a wide range of industries, with numbers growing year on year reflecting demand with over 1,000 peopleeflecting demand with over 1,000 people trained in 2017 alone.

Martin Kingsbury commented: “The growth in demand for the BFPA training courses over the past few years is really encouraging – it shows that our short courses are meeting the needs of industry and helping to raise standards and improve safety in the fluid power industry in UK engineering”.
