At C-MASTERS, we have created a selection of 'must do' courses. After several years of providing training we know which topics and skills are considered complex by students. Most of these topics are covered in the RYA shorebased courses and in practical courses. However, a more intensive training is needed to become a confident skipper.

During this two-day course, you will be taught both practical and theoretical elements of diesel engines, and their use for power handling of a yacht. The topics, amongst others, are:
We recommend the RYA Diesel Engine course for in-depth understanding of the functioning of a diesel engine.
The Reeds Skipper booklet is handy as a reference book.
