In response to COVID-19, the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS) has implemented some changes to accommodate those who are seeking fluid power certification, looking to re-certify or those who are in need of study materials.
New – Free Online Certification Study Groups – Every Tuesday and Thursday, an IFPS Accredited Instructor will lead a one-hour, free, online study group for one to two areas in the Hydraulic Specialist and Pneumatic Specialist Certification Study Manuals. Participants will need a study manual (print or pdf) to participate properly.
- IFPS Members may download these study manuals free.
- Non-members may purchase a study manual flash drive (or a print copy)
- Participants can also register for a Specialist Certification Test with a “to be determined” test date and receive a free downloadable study manual.
Certifications expiring in 2020? – The IFPS will grant six-month grace periods for re-certifications.
Upcoming web seminars – The IFPS is waiving the registration fee for all upcoming web seminars.
Certification test candidates – The IFPS will waive all reschedule fees until December 31, 2020.
