Boat Electrics Course

We highly recommend the MECO Boat Electrics courses for anyone who owns, crews on,  or skippers a small craft. The online courses below are created and supported by a panel of qualified marine electricians who are also OfQual qualified teachers, providing full support throughout your course.

 

Many Boat owners find their boats electrics difficult to understand and are not prepared for how to deal with (or prevent) electrical issues, this is where MECO can help with a range of online boat electrics courses aimed at beginners up to advanced. 

 

MECO also train up professional Marine Electricians too, so the whilst the courses below are aimed at beginners, they include all the same elements as the professional electricians courses, but are delivered step by step from the very basics. Please note that the courses are available as a package - for boat owners, skippers and crew we recommend the combined level 1 & 2 package.

A note from the Instructor

Hi, 

Before I became an RYA yachtmaster instructor, i worked as a marine electrician so I've seen first hand the damage from neglect, and misuse of the onboard electrics.

 

A shocking 55% of yacht fires are electrical so if you're involved in boating and feel your electrical knowledge is a little short, this course is definitely for you.

 

The number of leisure and commercial Yacht crew heading off to sea with no yacht systems training, considering the meticulous training in other areas, is a concern;  MECO training is specifically designing courses to fill this gap. 

 

The MECO Boat & Yacht Electrical courses were each originally designed as intensive classroom based courses, however they are now available as fully online courses, allowing you to set the learning pace - free of any time constraints.

 

Meco courses are available to anyone who would like to develop their onboard systems knowledge and learn how to prevent, find, and fix faults. There are no pre course requirements and beginners are welcome. 

 

Hope you enjoy the course.

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.
