Diesel Engine Course

This one day course provides an awareness of the main engine-course
systems of a marine diesel engine and will give you

occur on a vessel at sea. You will also be able to undertake
routine servicing and maintenance tasks.

working on a training engine in the class room and some
hours "getting down and dirty" onboard a yacht.
