About This Course

This course reinforces good marine electrical practices. A good knowledge of marine electricity helps maintain the health and welfare of the crew by promoting the safe operation of the many electrical systems on board a vessel. Topics include marine electrical safety and alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) fundamentals. It details the vessel distribution system as well as circuit protection and the electrical motor load.

The marine engineer must understand the entire production, distribution, and user end of the electrical process. He is required to maintain and overhaul all the electrical apparatus for safely operating the vessel.
