Since 1960, the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS) has provided an objective, third-party assessment of skill levels and knowledge for thousands of fluid power professionals, making it the industry standard for the fluid power and motion control industries. Having a certified workforce can:
- Help increase your company’s credibility
- Ensure your employees are all fully trained by standardizing skills assessments
- Make your company’s work environment safer and more efficient
Individuals with certifications must re-certify every five years to ensure their knowledge and skills are always up to date. Certifications cover industrial hydraulics, mobile hydraulics, and pneumatics at the specialist, mechanic, and technician levels. Study materials are available, as are certification review training sessions through third-party accredited instructors.
