What is the RYA Diesel Engine Course?
The RYA Diesel Engine Course, run over 1 day, is designed to help you prevent & solve diesel engine failure.
Mechanical failure is the main cause of rescue call-outs for marine diesel engines, so basic maintenance and engine care will help ensure that you do not fall foul of this statistic.
Most engine problems can be avoided by taking simple precautions, so you don’t need a detailed mechanical knowledge.
This RYA Diesel Engine course teaches you how your vessel’s engine works, how to keep it healthy by using basic checks & maintenance procedures, and how to get it started again in the event of a breakdown.
