What is the Approved Engine Course and who is it for?

The MCA Approved Engine course (AEC) objective is to provide students with the basic theoretical knowledge and practical hands on experience of diesel engines and systems to enable them to meet the requirements of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Codes of Practice for

The Safety of Large Commercial Sailing and Motor Vessels, the Safety of Small Commercial Motor Vessels and the Safety of Small Workboats and Pilot Boats.

Please note:

  • Annex 5 of the Safety of Large Commercial Sailing and Motor Vessels defines the Engineering Competencies required for these vessels.
  • Annex 7 of the Safety of Small Commercial Motor Vessels defines the Engineering Competencies required for these vessels.
  • Annex 11 of the Safety of Small Workboats and Pilot Boats defines the Engineering Competencies required for these vessels.

In short the course does not attempt to make diesel engineers out of you. It is designed in such a way that you will be able to carry out regular maintenance and safety checks as well as troubleshoot should there be a problem.
