Diesel Engine Course
This one day course provides an awareness of the main
systems of a marine diesel engine and will give you
the confidence and understanding to remove and replace
parts and identify common problems which will inevitably
occur on a vessel at sea. You will also be able to undertake
routine servicing and maintenance tasks. This course is very
hands on - you will spend some time on theory, some time
working on a training engine in the class room and some
hours "getting down and dirty" onboard a yacht.
