"Before attending the P111 pneumatics course at Festo, I had no knowledge of pneumatic diagrams or how pneumatic systems worked. Now thanks to the superb training I received, not only do I now understand how pneumatic systems work, but I am also able to design a basic pneumatic systems, and build them from the design document. Fantastic course, very well presented and timed"
