The Approved Engine Course is an entry-level qualification for the MCA engineering training schedule and is regarded as the first step on the ladder, and is highly recommended for those interested in marine engineering. It is a 5-day or 30-hour course that aims to provide candidates with practical basic hands-on training and theoretical knowledge of diesel engines.

The course is theoretical but includes partial demonstrations and focuses on the cycle of operation regarding 2 stroke and 4 stroke diesel and petrol engines, their fuel, electrical, lubrication and cooling systems, the combustion process, power transmission and hull fittings.

Holding an AEC certificate will allow you to be a chief engineer on a yacht over 24m and less than 200 Gross Tons or act as an assistant engineer on vessels over 200 GT up to 60NM from a safe haven.
