The RYA Diesel engine course is designed to help you prevent and solve diesel engine failure. The course will give awareness of the main systems of a marine diesel engine and the ability to prevent breakdown at sea & rectify defects not requiring workshop support. Mechanical failure is the main cause of lifeboat callouts to yachts. This RYA training course includes basic maintenance and engine care which will prevent most cases of engine failure.
The course also works well in complementing other training offered by Seagrass Marine.
