Modern electrical and electronic systems are something of a dark art for many surveyors. The Marine Surveying Academy, on behalf of IIMS, has organised a full 3-day course about the subject of modern electrical and electronic systems, comprising 9 modules and interspersed with practical sessions. There are just 10 spaces available.

This essential three-day programme is a must for surveyors involved in MCA commercial coding, those involved in the superyacht sector and any surveyor wanting more knowledge and to understand this complex area of surveying.

The programme has been designed and written over the last four years by ‘The Superyacht Doctor’, Andy Ridyard CEng FIET of SeaSystems (UK) Ltd, and he is your course tutor.
