The course aims to give an awareness of the main systems of a marine diesel engine so that skippers and crew can take simple measures to prevent mechanical failures at sea, and rectify defects which do not require work shop support.
This two day course provides extensive practical hands-on experience and there is plenty of opportunity for interaction with the qualified instructor and other course members.
Operation of the marine diesel engine
Fuel, lubrication, cooling and electrical systems
Winterisation and fault diagnosis
Extensive practical hands-on session on second day.
We also offer a comprehensive five day MCA Maine Diesel course which is ideally suited to those involved in the manning of small private or commercial motor/sailing vessels operated for personal, training or charter activities.
