Basic Diesel Engine Class

I've googled the Web and searched these forums looking for a basic diesel engine class. The only one that I can find is offered through the ABYC, scheduled for June 8th and 9th of this year. I have to be at my nephew's graduation then, so that one is out.

Can anyone tell me who else conducts basic diesel engine classes?

United States Power Squadrons, I have not taken the Engine Maintenance course with them but have found they do a fine job for what the courses are intended for, and at a minimum cost.

We just took the Mack Boring 1 & 2 day courses in Wilmington NC. Mack Boring is a longtime distributor for Yanmar diesels. The class has been taught by Larry Berlin for a long time - 20-25 years- and he is really good. I would recommend it highly. They take several Yanmar engines around that are on pallets - and you take them apart, perform maintenance etc and then run them. They had our particular engine - 4JH-HTE - and its really good to see where everything is in a less confined area. It was very helpful....

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

Mack Boring also offers classes in NJ, and maybe some other locations. Their site should have the details. Also, classes in marine diesels seem to be popping up all over. A couple of outfits offer them in Annapolis for example. Check around locally.
