In addition, all participants will be given a holistic view of Komatsu technical training (first level). This program covers the following:
Komatsu Literature and Service Environment – 1 day
Provides participants with knowledge of Komatsu manuals and their contents, along with availability of other sources of information, and a thorough understanding of correct paperwork, forms and their applications. Content can be modified to suit customer-specific applications if required.
Komatsu Hydraulics – 1 day
Provides participants with fundamental knowledge of hydraulic applications for earthmoving equipment generally, and specifically to Komatsu equipment. Participants will be given the skills to use and understand circuit diagrams and fundamental operating principals of the main hydraulic circuits.
Komatsu Electrical – 1 day
This unit gives participants fundamental knowledge of electrical systems as they apply to earthmoving equipment generally, and specifically to Komatsu equipment. It will provide participants with the skills to use testing and diagnostic equipment using diagrams and circuit principles.
Troubleshooting – 1 day
This unit provides participants with the relevant techniques and knowledge to assist with diagnostics and troubleshooting for hydraulics and electrical circuits, using schematics and other supporting resources.
Machine/specific Technical Training – (duration varies depending on machine type
Technical training is aimed at the skills needs of
mechanical and electrical trade’s people in the areas of technical service and
maintenance training, and can be customised by machine type and model or
technology platform (such as hydraulics, electrics, engines, etc).
These courses (which are customised to meet specific
organisational or site requirements) give participants hands-on experience with
specific types of machinery, incorporating all safety aspects.
Each level develops and builds skills, familiarisation and
knowledge in each participant, and successful completion is a prerequisite to
the next level. This training is up to a full four-day program, tailored to
your company’s requirements (NOTE: Level
1 training may not always be required).
