Course Description

As the electrical and electronics systems on recreational vessels become more and more complex, the electrical technician must advance their knowledge base to keep pace with them. This course offers a deeper look at some subjects from the Marine Electrical Certification course, such as alternative charging courses, AC power-conversion equipment, and galvanic isolation, as well as introducing the advanced topic of three-phase power distribution and the ever-advancing technology of electric propulsion. Information on troubleshooting and diagnosing issues with these systems is also discussed.
