Included in this package:

Marine Electrical course for Beginners
Get Started

Minimum study time 3 days

MECO courses do not require any previous knowledge, the level one course starts from the very basics of how electricity behaves in a circuit and applies this to the marine electrical system.

You will learn about Volts, Amps, Ohms, batteries, cabling, circuit protection, how the various international standards and regulations apply.

By the end of the course you will have a foundation in marine electrics and be able to prevent, find, and fix minor faults on a basic electrical system.

It's possible to complete the course in 3 days, but it's best to take longer, most people complete the course over a few weeks with a little study each week. You have lifetime access, theres no rush, and the course serves as an up to date reference once completed.
