    www.marinediesels.info

    This site is fantastic for both cadets and for those studying for higher certificates.

    There is a free section which is pitched at about the right level for cadets and a members section with past paper questions and worked answers for seconds and chiefs motor EK's

    I wouldn't recommend that cadets pay for the members section, as that part of the site is aimed at a much higher level than you need, but the free section is very good and for anyone doing higher certificates of competency the members section is well worth the money.

    Does the curriculum for engine cadet cover any aspects specific to electrical engineering?

    Hello there, I am currently around half way through my 3rd Phase at College in Glasgow studying on the Professional Diploma route (Foundation degree in England)

    In phase 1 the only electrical based subject we did was Single Phase electrics

    However in Phase 3 we are covering Electrical Machine Principles which is mainly about different types of motors, 3 Phase electrics, Marine Electrical engineering which is mainly about safety etc, Controllers & Transducers and Electrical Motor drive systems.

    Phase 3 covers a lot of electrical engineering and in actual fact I could obtain an HNC in electrical engineering if I wished by doing only about 3 more courses and sitting the graded unit, however I don't really have the time to combine this with my study.

    Any other questions about subjects covered then ask away, more than happy to help

    The cadet syllabus and indeed the second and chief engineer syllabi (sp?) cover electrical engineering in some depth. Many ships don't carry leckies and the engineers deal with electrical problems.

    Can't speak for elsewhere but at STC in phase 1 & 3 you also do electrical workshop to fill in the (gaping) holes left by the theory part of the electrics.

    Some good recommendations from DosedMonkey here.

    A good overall basic marine mechanical/equipment introduction book there is D.A. Taylor, Introduction to Marine Engineering. This is in the library.


    If your looking for something more ETO related, I'm sure Chris can recommend you something.
    Depends how much you understand already though, basic electrical books go there are two main marine ones,
    - Marine Electrical Equipment and Practice, H.D. McGeorge

    - Practical Marine Electrical Knowledge, D.T. Hall (This is in the library)
