Hydraulics-Ready with eLearning



eHTG Training Program Presents Hydraulics Basics

Contemporary Internet-based eLearning gives Rexroth an exceptionally cost-efficient instrument for substantiated technical education and advanced training. The eHTG eLearning program contains learning contents on hydraulics basics and guides users through clearly-defined learning objectives based on the latest didactic findings. Learners set their individual learning pace and manage their time themselves. eLearning, which is also suitable for group instruction, has achieved international success at numerous corporations, continuing education institutions, schools, and universities.

The "eHTG – Hydraulics Basics" training program provides operators, maintenance and installation engineers, planners, designers, and others involved in the hydraulics industry with a solid basis in fluid technology through 13 learning components.

In addition to the performance and structure of select hydraulics components and equipment, the program also includes hydraulics circuit diagram design. eHTG offers practically-oriented preparation for handling hydraulic equipment and components in day-to-day operations. Rexroth will offer a password-protected personal learning server for each license. Learners have unrestricted access to learning contents throughout the duration of the license period and will receive a personal Rexroth certificate with the accreditation to participate in subsequent training courses after successfully passing the final exam. eHTG can also be used to prepare for advanced attendance training units, e.g. hands-on training sessions offered by Rexroth for hydraulic control valves (HTP-1), hydraulic pumps and motors (HTPPu), or electrotechnology for hydraulics engineers (EHG) based on eLearning units.

Numerous companies and educational institutions have been using eLearning to provide cost-efficient technical contents training. Rexroth’s practical-based eLearning modules give learners a comparable level of knowledge as a prerequisite for further educational contents or use in everyday work environments, regardless of location or prior knowledge.

Overall, the Rexroth Drive & Control Academy online program comprises more than 1,500 pages of training contents and documents in German, English, and Chinese. In addition to the eHTG, the current product program also includes eLearning components about functional safety. Additional eLearning units about pneumatics and linear motion technology will be added in the course of ongoing product program expansion.
