RYA 1 day Diesel Engine Maintenance

The RYA Diesel Engine Maintenance is a one-day beginners’ course to help you prevent and solve diesel engine failure.

Mechanical failure is the main cause of rescue call-outs to cruisers. Basic maintenance and engine care will help ensure that you are not part of this statistic. Most engine problems can be avoided by taking simple precautions, and you don’t need a detailed mechanical knowledge.

This course teaches you how your engine works, how to keep it healthy by using basic checks and maintenance procedures, and how to get it started again in the event of a breakdown.

The MCA Approved Engine course or AEC is a 30 hour, 4 day course and is a step up from the RYA 1 day Diesel Engine course. The objective of the course is to provide a basic theoretical knowledge and some practical hands on experience of diesel engines and systems. To make the course as practical as possible we use a number of engines and sections of engines which can be stripped to their component parts and hopefully put back together again.

The course meets the requirements of the MCA Small Commercial Vessel Code, Large Vessel Code and Workboat code and is the initial course on the Engineering pathway.
