The practical course covers the operation, maintenance, and basic repair of a modern marine diesel engine on board your own boat.
The RYA Diesel Engine course is designed to teach yachtsmen to be more self-sufficient. The one-day course teaches the principles of diesel engine operation, the systems and parts of the engine, fault finding and rectification of common problems, routine maintenance, and winter lay-up procedures.
You will have the chance to see exactly how a diesel engine works by way of a cut away demonstration engine as well as get some real hands-on experience with a real engine on a yacht.
This course is a must for all yachtsmen – a sound knowledge of diesel engines may not just save you money – it may one day save your life!
At the completion of the course, you will be awarded the RYA Diesel Engine Course Certificate.
