This course is designed to benefit recreational and professional mariners who operate vessels with two-stroke and four-stroke diesel engines.
The course covers diesel engines in general and is not brand specific. Students will learn the unique characteristics of and differences between two-stroke and four-stroke engines.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to understand, troubleshoot and perform basic preventative maintenance and repairs to their engines.
The course format is a combination of lecture and hands-on instruction. Students will disassemble and reassemble real engines that offer visual access to the inner workings and allow the students to make the transition from a theoretical to a practical understanding of diesel engine operation and maintenance.
