AEC might well have been called the ’Assistant Engineers Course’, it is a requirement for holding this relatively new post. The AEC is aimed at giving a wide and general appreciation of basic marine diesel mechanics and electrics along with an understanding of the chief engineer’s responsibilities.
Specifically the course covers: compression ignition engines (general principles), the cycle of operation and construction of engines. It describes fuel systems, the role of air in the combustion process, cooling and lubrication systems, engine electrical systems, power transmission and hull fittings. Other areas include safe working practices, pollution prevention and bottled gas installations.
The course is the first rung on the engineering career ladder for those with no formal marine engineering or craft training. It is of interest to crew members from other departments who wish to enhance their employment prospects by being able to fill the Assistant Engineer position or who wish simply to deepen their engineering knowledge. Small boat private owners may also find this course useful.
