Course Schedules

This one-week course familiarizes deck officers with the fundamental principles of marine power plants to enhance overall shipboard operational safety through effective use and understanding of the propulsion, electric and auxiliary systems, and their inherent design limitations. During the course, students gain basic knowledge of large-bore 2-stroke and 4-stroke diesel engines, high-pressure boilers and steam turbine propulsion, marine gas turbine engines, mechanical thrust reversing equipment, and high voltage power transmission systems.

Note: This course is principally intended for candidates for seeking certification as officers in charge of a navigational watch at the management level.
