Gear Drives and Open Gearing (2 days)
Participants in this course will learn about gear types including spur, helical, bevel, worm, rack and pinion, internal, and gear terminology.  Gear alignment instruction will include preliminary, backlash method, and root clearance method, gear failure and inspection, comparative sizes of gear teeth, and gear characteristics.

HAZWOPER
The 8-hour Annual Refresher course is required after Initial Course completion. The 24-hour Technical course qualifies people for the Occasional Site Worker level for work on known or potentially contaminated sites. The 40-hour Full Initial course is for General Site Workers on known or potentially contaminated sites.  It also meets classroom/instructional requirement for Supervisors.

Hydraulics (2 days)
The class is designed to review the fundamentals of hydraulics and to provide a working knowledge of the components used in hydraulic power systems.  Emphasis is placed on the installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of individual components and circuits.  Training includes principles and laws, fluid power diagrams, contamination/fluid conditioning, hydraulic pumps, motors and cylinders, hydraulic control valves, troubleshooting/fluid power circuits and components, component testing, electro-hydraulic control systems, and circuit analysis.
