Re: Looking for marine systems training school

I took a one day diesel course at Mass Maritime. Students paired up and took apart and put back together a Westerbke diesal. They also offer a few other "continuing ed" type courses. It was pretty cool, but I think a trouble shooting and repair class would have been better. I am also looking at Annapolis School of Seamanship. They look like they have a pretty good curriculum of short term courses. Has anyone taken a course there before?

As for the discussion about do it yourself work or taking a course, I know for myself I need both. If I don't go out and work with what I've learned, I forget a lot of it. For me the doing reinforces the learning.
