The course is approved by the UK’s Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) and is ideal for the owners or operators of small inshore and pleasure vessels. The AEC could also be the first step into the engineering department of a superyacht.

The aim of the course is to enable students to be able to complete all the necessary checks and action required to keep the engine operating when the boat is being used.

Delivery of the content is split into both classroom activities and practical application. The basic operation of engines and their support systems will be covered as well as the checks and fault finding required using actual systems fitted to boats.

Delegates will be assessed throughout the course with a final assessment on day 4.
