Our Courses

Industrial Ancillaries Academy offers training courses in partnership with the following trade associations and companies:

BFPA Courses Gates Hydraulics Courses HAM-LET® Online Courses

These training programmes have been established to raise the awareness levels of people who work with hydraulic and pneumatic hoses at all levels: from the system designer and field engineer, to the machine operator and the person who actually makes hose assemblies.

The BFPA Foundation Safety Course and the practical workshop-based  Hose Assembly Skills Training Programme take the basic foundation level of knowledge and trains the individual to a fully assessed level of ability in hose assembly techniques. Additionally, we have recently introduced the Hose Integrity, Inspection and Management Course and Small Bore Tube Integrity Course.

BFPA Courses

Attendees of all BFPA courses will receive a high-quality, personalised course book, as well as certification of attendance, and will be registered on the BFPA database.

Attendees will also receive the new BFPA Passport Scheme card on completion of their course, which is both a photo ID card and record of the courses each participant has undertaken. For more details on the Passport Scheme, see the BFPA article here.
