Course Prerequisite & Age: 12 Years + for course. Under 18's to be Accompanied. 
What's In The Course?: During the course you change the engines oil & fuel filters, replace water pump impellers. Also get to understand 2 stroke & 4 stroke systems and much, much more.

Being able to service and maintain your boats engine gives you reassurance at sea and can also reduce your ownership costs.

The RYA does not offer an outboard petrol engine maintenance & servicing course, however as an RYA recognised training centre that already offers the diesel engine course from our Southampton training centre, we have designed a course along the RYA diesel engine course syllabus, aimed at both 2 stroke and 4 stroke petrol outboard engine maintenance.

This 1 day course runs from 9.30am to about 4.30pm and includes hands on servicing of both 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines. So very much a mix of classroom and hands on practical skills.

2 Stroke & 4 Stroke Petrol Outboard Maintenance Course

With both 2 stroke and 4 stroke outboard petrol engines onsite in our dedicated training workshop in central Southampton, we have the perfect environment for this training course.

Outboard Engine Maintenance

Our objective was to better understand the engine we often depend on, and to know why and where things can go wrong. Sean was an extremely knowledgeable and personable instructor. We left the course feeling much more confident. Really worthwhile.
