Our RYA Approved diesel engine course gives you all of the knowledge and confidence you need to check over your engine and keep it in tip-top efficient and running order, as well as understanding of how to maintain it using our diesel training engine and fully working engine demonstrator.
What you will learn
Our fully equipped classroom and complete engine review ensures you get an RYA approved training qualification.
Whether you have a little experience of diesel engines or no knowledge of engines at all, our course gives you a complete overview of the operation and maintenance of a typical marine diesel engine. Course knowledge is passed on from our expert team, combined with hands-on training and ‘tricks of the trade’ to give you the understanding and confidence to maintain your own engine at your berth or mooring, or even how to try and fix your engine if something goes wrong whilst out on the water. The course is designed for owners of the many diesel engined motor cruisers, fishing boats, workboats or sailing yachts that enjoy any of our local harbours or that head further out to sea.

What the course Includes:
The course is taught primarily in the classroom at Sparkes Marina, and we aim to make the course practical, relevant, cost effective and fun. Using our rig mounted shore based marine diesel engines, you will be encouraged and trained to take a very active practical role. All necessary tools are supplied to enable you to get involved in stripping and changing various diesel engine parts, all because we believe that most people learn best by doing. With a maximum of six people on the course, our clients have the advantage of maximum hands-on time learning in the classroom.
RYA course companion booklet and RYA training certification is all supplied as part of the price of the course.
