Marine Engineering Certificate Level 2

If you’re fascinated by the more technical components that are in boats – the engines, the pumps, the propulsion systems – then this is the course for you.

By focusing on marine engineering, you’ll develop the practical skills and experience that will prepare you for a lifelong career in the dynamic marine industry. You’ll develop essential skills in communicating highly technical information, maintaining mechanical devices, and testing electrical equipment and circuits. You’ll be assessed by completing a range of practical tasks, and producing a portfolio of evidence.

Practical sessions are delivered in our fully equipped workshop, whilst the essential underpinning theory and knowledge is delivered in our specialist classroom facilities.You’ll be studying at South Devon Marine Academy , so you’ll be based in a working boatyard and see first-hand what working as a marine engineer is like.

“My goal is to become a marine engineer, and my course has improved my career prospects as well as providing many memorable experiences. I've driven a powerboat and worked on the engine of Aspiration, the College’s 38ft yacht, amongst many others; all great experience for employment.”  Leanne Cole
