Diesel Maintenance and Repair Classes ?
 
There is a place in the Northern NJ offer one weekend or three-day course for diesel mechanics. It was a highly recommended place. Any one know their link, I lost mine. TIA.

Although I have don't have personal experience with Mack Boring, I've heard it's a good class if you have a Yanmar.
I did take the diesel classes from "The Annapolis School of Seamanship". The class there is not concerned with any brand and you will work on several different makes. I cannot say enough about what a great education I got there. I took both the 2 day basic class and the follow on 2 day level 2 class. I'm an engineer by day and I thought I knew the basics, but there were a few real gems I learned even on the first morning. Highly recommended!

If this is the same Yanmar diesel school in NJ that I've heard about, from what I was told you can let them know the exact diesel model that you have and they let you use that same model for the class. So essentially you're learning and practicing on your own engine.
