Date: Tuesday, August 14, 2012 - Friday, August 17, 2012 
Time: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Location: Sure Marine, 5320 28th Aves NW, #100, Seattle, Washington 98107

Notes: This 4 day program with instructor Kevin Ritz will present the newcomer to marine electrics with the basic information to get started in this interesting area of marine service and troubleshooting. The program will explain all common terms used and discuss fundamental electrical theory as it applies to marine electrical systems and cathodic protection systems used to help mitigate corrosion on boats.
During class students will be taught how to use a common digital multi-meter to measure volts, electrical resistance and amperage, both AC and DC. Perhaps more important, this class will teach the successful student what the readings they get on their meter actually mean and what some of the corrective actions that may need to be taken are.
This class will also review some of the common causes for marine corrosion and how to provide suitable protection against it.
Course materials will be handed out during the first day of class.
