    Re: how to ???

    I would think that you are already academically qualified. Maybe a couple of upgrade courses or seminars in hydraulics? Aside from that, learn by experience with senior workers.
    (And I didn't ignore the fact that hydraulics are part of your current position, but maybe something less 'oil-based' will be helpful.)
