The AEC, or ’Approved Engine Course’, is essential for individuals seeking to hold the relatively new position of assistant engineer. Designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of basic marine diesel mechanics and electrics, it also delves into the responsibilities of a chief engineer.

The course covers a wide range of topics, including the fundamental principles of compression ignition engines, engine operation cycles, and construction. Detailed discussions are held on fuel systems, the crucial role of air in combustion, and cooling and lubrication systems. Additionally, participants gain insights into engine electrical systems, power transmission mechanisms, and hull fittings.
 

Moreover, the curriculum addresses vital aspects such as safe working practices, pollution prevention measures, and the installation of bottled gas systems. As the initial step on the engineering career ladder, the AEC is particularly valuable for individuals lacking formal marine engineering or craft training.
 

Furthermore, it is beneficial for crew members from various departments seeking to broaden their employment prospects by assuming the role of assistant engineer or simply wishing to deepen their understanding of engineering principles. Even small private boat owners may find the knowledge gained from this course advantageous.

This course is fully redeemable with your ONE Account vouchers.
