Minimum educational recommendations - pneumatics
07 March 2018
After discussion and consultation with pneumatic industry players, training providers, end users and accreditation bodies, BFPA’s Education and Training Task Force and the BFPA have released the second of three 'minimum recommendations for the fluid power industry' documents – the Minimum Educational Recommendations - Pneumatics.
The document, available for download for free from the BFPA website, provides a platform from which a variety of training courses may be developed by recognised providers around the UK. It is expected that these recommendations may represent the basis for developing a passport scheme for engineers in the sector and perhaps ultimately the foundations for a regulatory framework.
Work is underway to develop a similar set of recommendations for electrical / electronics applied to fluid power systems.
As the trade association for fluid power, BFPA considers this work not only as an aspiration to increase educational and safety standards in the fluid power sector but as a duty to its members and the wider industry.
