Parker Hydraulic Technology

Parker Industrial Hydraulic Technology Credential

Working together with global industry leader Parker Hannifin, we use industrial components for the training systems. This allows students to have a unique hands-on experience with industrial components that are being used in real-world applications, and receive industry recognized credentials for their resume.

Instructor Certification Training:

Industrial Hydraulic Technology: A 3½-day course which covers basic components of an industrial hydraulic system. Class sessions are reinforced with lab exercises.

Class Location: 

Parker Hannifin Corporation

Hydraulic Valve Division

520 Temes Avenue

Elyria, OH 4405

Training also offered at Partner Education Facilities such as RAMTEC 

 Price: Instructor Training cost gifted with equipment purchase. Additional instructor training cost contingent on training location: est. $750 - $1,350

Course Content Used: 

The Industrial Hydraulic Technology textbook introduces

students to hydraulics as it relates to industrial machinery.

Over the course of 15 chapters, the student is led through

topics ranging from fluids and basic physical concepts to

component operation and application.


The IHT Lab Manual contains a variety of circuit examples

and demonstrations for the instructor to choose from. 

The manual walks through 30 different exercises for use with 

the Hydraulic Education System that we offer.

References are made in lab exercises to the text material to 

reinforce concepts.
