Training Success for Western Units
Pictured are members of Tewkesbury based Severn Unit and their colleagues from Bristol Unit taking part in the RYA Diesel Engineering and the VHF Short Range Courses held last weekend.
The units were grateful to RVO Eric Thresher MVS of Estuary Training for his instruction in both subjects and all who participated successfully achieved their certificates. Head of Severn Unit, Nic Price, said “Both courses went extremely well and we are very grateful that members from both units had the opportunity to study an actual marine diesel engine at close quarters. This raises awareness of the main systems of a diesel engine and Eric advised on simple measures to prevent a mechanical breakdown and how defects could be rectified.
Those members attending the VHF course also benefited from Eric’s considerable knowledge and experience and we would recommend Eric to any Unit as he has the kit and will travel.”
