About this course

Students should allow five days for the tasks to be scheduled and completed in our engineering workshops.

Student testimonial

“As an engineer, it is great to be able to learn from chief engineers who have been in the maritime business for many years. For any question asked, an answer is always given, as the combined experience of all the lectures at the academy is countless.”

Daniel Springer, Chief Engineer (Yachts)
