This is a one day course taught with a low ratio of students to one instructor (usually 6:1).

Participants on the course will receive full RYA diesel engine maintenance qualifications and an RYA diesel engine maintenance handbook.

The course runs mostly on Sundays but we can arrange weekdays for group bookings.

Instructor testimonial


Last year our RYA diesel engine maintenance courses started under the instruction and guidance of Matt Miller, a highly experience diesel mechanic who is also an excellent teacher. To deliver this course we have a working engine which students can use to practically apply what is being taught in the classroom.
The course enables participants to fully understand how to maintain and look after their own engines, providing them with the necessary knowledge to prevent them from breaking down.

Participant testimonial
I just want to say a HUGE thank you for the Diesel Engine Course that I attended last weekend. I learnt a huge amount. Matt was a terrific help.
He is a very good teacher - highly organised and knowledgeable and a very effective communicator. He didn't hold back for a second and really shared his knowledge with skill and care.
