Why Choose this Training Course? 

This PetroKnowledge training course is designed to introduce and enhance the knowledge and basic principles and concepts of marine engineering for those new to the vessel, offshore and shipping industry or those requiring a greater level of understanding.  This training course will benefit basic level; project managers, soft skilled employees and back office management wishing to have a greater understanding of marine engineering principles, concepts, procurement, marine engineers and marine response teams with techniques, procedures and resources to manage and understand the aspects of marine mechanics in a maritime environment.

The operation, maintenance and repair of these engines and components depends on many factors – including wear down, poor repairs and diagnostic faults, poor maintenance, fuels and lubrication. Results of analysis of casualties and accidents show that in one third of all, that human error is involved, and the same amount of damages is attributed to the poor education and specific training standards. 

This training course covers these aspects from both basic and intermediate levels of experience. This PetroKnowledge course provides the basic and some technical instructions regarding mechanical wear down, piston and bearing failures, exhaust and valves, engine checklists, engine vulnerabilities and the internal mechanics of combustion engines and its components in a marine environment.
