Duration: 1 day.

Classroom Course:  One day, usually 09:00 to 17:00, with no final exam but there will be written exercises and practical assessments during the day to develop your skills.
The classroom course is structured with alternating theory and practical modules to enhance your learning.  We will be working on an engine in the classroom and then move from the classroom to the boat for on-board scenarios.

No experience is necessary to learn about engines!

This course introduces the basic functional notions and maintenance necessary to prevent and resolve fundamental problems in diesel engines.
A portion of the course will be dedicated to small outboard engines.

The course will cover, among other things, the following topics:

  • Operational principles of a diesel engine
  • Engine systems and its parts
  • Diagnosis and fixes for common problems
  • How to change an impeller
  • How to change an oil and a fuel filter

  • The outboard engine

Didactic materials and tools will be available during the course
