This course will familiarize employees with the basics of a marina electrical system. The delivery of electrical power is traced from the utility to marina facilities and shore pedestals.
Employees will learn about the importance of grounding and bonding, sources and means for prevention of stray and galvanic currents, as well as testing and troubleshooting procedures.
Upon completion of the course employees will be prepared to educate boat owners about proper grounding and bonding of on board power systems and to help them reduce damage from electrical corrosion.

This is one of the few courses, besides first aid and CPR training, that saves lives, maybe your own. Understanding electricity involves technical knowledge. This course is aimed at those with little or no electrical background. As one student commented, “I've tried to educate myself before on basic electrical but most courses or manuals are overly complicated or too basic. This course was just what I wanted."
