Basic electrical and fluid technology 

This course addresses the training need of operational level engineers in the subjects of electrical and hydraulic / pneumatic equipment and systems.

With more and more vessels sailing without Electrical Officers, it is extremely important to commence training in these subjects at an early stage. The course covers the relevant aspects of electrical and fluid technology knowledge for operational level engineers. In addition to theory lectures, the participant is exposed to substantial practical training, both, in actually wiring up of starters / motors and also on the hydraulic trainer panel.

Course Objective:

To enable the participants to:
  • understand the fundamental concepts of electrical technology.
  • recognize component symbols and their construction, functioning and applications.
  • identify symbols, trace and analyze simple circuit diagrams.
  • understand the fundamental concepts of hydraulics.
  • recognize component symbols and their construction, functioning and applications.
  • identify symbols, trace and analyze simple circuit diagrams.
  • learn through sharing of experiences amongst participants.
