30 Hour MCA Approved Engine Course (AEC) and Two Day Engineroom Watchkeeping
30 Hour MCA Approved Engine Course (AEC)
The objective of this course is to provide students with the basic theoretical knowledge and some practical hands on experience of diesel engines to enable them to meet the requirements of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Codes of Practice for the Safety of Large Commercial Sailing & Motor Vessels, the Safety of Small Commercial Motor Vessels and the Safety of Small Workboats & Pilot Boats. This short course does not attempt to make diesel engineers from the course participants but should enable students to carry out regular servicing and be more aware of possible faults developing before they become major problems.
