Stage 2 (EP2) Advanced Electro-Pneumatics
A four day programme designed for personnel at all levels, to increase the knowledge and skills acquired on the NFPC Stage 1 Pneumatics Course. Stage 2 Pneumatics includes Electrical, Electronics, Advanced Pneumatic devices and techniques used to control/optimise Integrated Pneumatic Systems.
Throughout the course a practical hands-on approach, emphasising safe working practises, will be used to assist in understanding the course contents more effectively. The learners’ skills and abilities will be enhanced, leading to heightened performance in their workplace.
4 Day Course (1:15pm Monday – 12:30 Friday)
Candidates will receive a comprehensive set of course notes, lunch, refreshments, and certificate of attendance.
We recommend Stage 1 (EP1) Electro- Pneumatics. You may also consider the CETOP P1 Competence Based Qualification.
- To ensure candidates have a better overall knowledge and understanding of Advanced Pneumatic Control systems and the associated technology together with the interface with Electrical/Electronics and their control, forming the Integrated System.
- Improve communication levels as terminology is better understood, together with key aspects of health and safety, resulting in improved levels of safe working practices when working with and around Integrated Systems.
On completion of this course candidates will be able to:
- Describe advanced pneumatic, electrical and electronic control equipment/techniques and their utilisation in
modern industrial processes.
- Describe the implications of current and future legislation regarding Functional Safety, Energy
Efficiency and Environmental Protection.
- Describe and utilise fault-finding principles and techniques
During the practical section of this course candidates will engage in and apply the following skills:
- Read, interpret and utilise technical information of integrated electro-pneumatic systems when
planning, building, testing and commissioning systems.
- Locate, identify and explain the function of devices in a system.
- Build, commission and operate electro-pneumatic control system circuits
- Perform Fault Diagnosis and rectify resultant issues so that the system complies to
