Two new marine courses, developed under the Jobs in Boating grant, are being offered at Massasoit Community College in Canton, Mass.

The courses — marine diesel engines and electrical systems — are a collaboration between the community college and the Massachusetts Marine Trades Association.

The marine diesel course runs Feb. 7, 21 and 28, and cost is $167 per person. Participants will learn about the operational principles of the most common diesel fuel systems and will have hands-on exposure to installing inline and rotary fuel pumps on running engines. An industry-recognized certificate will be issued upon completion.

The marine electrical systems course runs Tuesdays and Thursdays, March 3 to April 2, and also is $167 per person.

This course introduces the basic components and principles of electrical systems in the recreational marine industry. Topics include electrical basics, use of a multimeter, wiring diagrams, symbols, color codes, battery charging, battery testing, and engine-instrumentation troubleshooting. An industry-recognized certificate will be issued upon completion.

Both courses take place on the Canton campus of Massasoit Community College. Those interested can register online at www.massasoit.mass.edu. For information, call (508) 588-9100 ext. 2304 or 2032.
