About this course

Start off from the very basics of the DC system and progress through to some of the finer points. 

Learn how systems work, how they can fail, and how to find and fix faults. 

 

The general ethos behind this course is that all repairs or new installations should be better than the surrounding wiring, improving the reliability of the vessel as a whole and that any additions to the electrical system should be clearly labelled up for future faultfinding.

The course takes you step by step through all the skills you need to be able to understand, maintain, and repair some basic simple faults on the vessels Dc electrical system.

Hello there!

 

I worked as a marine electrician in my early 20's before I became a yachtmaster instructor / maritime lecturer so the idea of yachtmasters going to sea with literally no electrical knowledge concerned me, hence the motivation to develop this course. 

 

My company Allabroad Ltd teaches yachtmaster students from all over the world, often a full course will have no 2 guys from the same country so I needed to develop a course that covers both the international ISO 10133 standards and the USA standards (ABYC).

 

The MECO Boat & Yacht Electrical course is included in my Yachtmaster Fast Track Professional package, but is now available as a stand alone course for yacht owners, skippers and crew who would like to develop their onboard electrical knowledge, find and fix faults, and learn more about preventative maintenance. 

 

Fresh course content is added weekly, and you have lifetime access, there's a free trial, and if you do enrol and then change your mind, there's a 30 day money back guarantee.  

 

It doesn't bear thinking about but 80% of yacht fires are electrical so if you're a boater and feel your electrical knowledge is a little short, this course is for you. 

 

Best Wishes

Free sample lesson below.

The sample lesson is from the latter end of the course where we begin to look at how individual components interact, it serves to show the level of knowledge you will have after the course, not the level thats required before. This is a complete beginners course, so there are no pre-course requirements.
