Re: Marine Electrical Classes?

Check out the ABYC website. Most of the courses are run on the east coast but they also do them in Canada and the west coast. Most other courses will be based on their standards anyway.

Re: Marine Electrical Classes?

I live in the Seattle area. Here some of the best technical 1-2 day technical courses are run thru the Univ. of Washington Sea Grant program. Sea Grant is a federal program that's locally run. Education is both for commercial and recreational boaters. Typically the courses pay for themselves. Marine electrical courses come up periodically and when they run it they have a great program. You may want to Google it in your area.

Re: Marine Electrical Classes?

I have found several CC options, but the schedule does not work for me. Work a 3 weeks on then 3 weeks off. Need a class of 2-4 days in a block.

I am going to order the book. I have Nigels, but I learn better listening to someone explain it to me. Book if I have to, but prefer a good instructor.

Boating electrical system is relatively simple. It is not much to it. If you are far from any instruction class loaction, I would just get a good book and spend a few nite reading you are good to go.

I have a few books but I like the best. It is much better than the one Nigle wrote.

If someone still remember their 2nd seamster Physics in college, just go back to review your text book, you are good to go.

Of course, YMMV

Re: Marine Electrical Classes?

Try your local community colleges - much less expensive.

Re: Marine Electrical Classes?

There is another coast?

Bob Cambell who teaches the on at the Annapolis Seamanship courses is excellent. He has helped do work on my boat also and thats what convinced me to take the course he teaches.
