The objective of the Approved Engine Course is to give students both the theoretical knowledge and practical hands-on experience of diesel engines and associated systems.
The AEC enables students to carry out regular servicing of marine diesel engines, and to carry out fault prevention and detection. This course meets the requirements for the MCA Codes of Practice for the ‘Safety of Large Commercial Sailing and Motor Vessels’, the ‘Safety of Small Commercial Motor Vessels’ and the ‘Safety of Small Workboats and Pilot Boats’.
The 30 hour diesel engine qualification is the entry level qualification for the MCA ‘Engineering Officer (Yacht)’ syllabus. It is also a prerequisite for certain areas of both the Fishing and the Workboat sectors.
