Hands-on learning.

Oilgear believes that the most meaningful product training occurs when the students can hold the hardware in their hands.  Whether for an Oilgear valve, pump, or system, in-depth product training is available at our facility or yours.


The best workforce is a well-trained workforce.  You want to know that problems will get fixed quickly and that everything possible is being done to prevent unscheduled downtime.  The best way to achieve that goal is to work with a company that understands your needs.  Oilgear has been supplying hydro-electric equipment and training to customers around the world for 85 years.  That gives our instructors access to an extensive information library to ensure that you receive the education you need.

We offer programs designed to fit your training requirements.  The coursework will be configured to teach students about hydraulic components, circuits and control systems as well as how to maintain the equipment and accurately diagnose problems.  School can be held at your facility or at Oilgear’s Traverse City, Michigan Headquarters.  Training programs range from basic hydraulic and control to fully customized instruction covering the specific equipment and systems you have in your facility.



Each school is customized around your equipment. We will provide instructors trained in the use of your equipment. Student manuals are also provided.

Under the guidance of experienced engineers and technicians, you will receive instruction on the operation and application of control and hydraulic components.

  • Detailed component instruction
  • The study of complete hydraulic power and control systems, including the identification of system components
  • Recommendations on preventative maintenance, adjustment, trouble-shooting, and repair

Oilgear Hydraulic Valve Pump DocumentationBy applying the training received in the Oilgear courses, operating and maintenance personnel can correct or eliminate malfunctions and premature failures while using the equipment at optimum operating conditions.



Documentation is the life-blood of any maintenance program.  When the information is incomplete or difficult to find, your ability to maintain your equipment can be severely hampered.  Oilgear can provide documentation services to fix these problems.

We offer several different options that are customized to your requirements.  This can range from providing hard copy documents in indexed binders, to supplying fully interactive electronic packages.

Interactive packages provide the greatest flexibility.  Circuit drawings, technical documents and equipment pictures are used to link the physical equipment to the associated documents.  Links on the pictures, circuits, bill of materials or document index provide multiple ways to find information on a system component.

Meshing the interactive documentation package with an Oilgear training program gives maintenance and engineering powerful tools to ensure that everyone can access and properly use the information.
