This course is tailored for a wide range of maritime professionals, focusing specifically on the important procedures and workings of a ship’s Engine Room. Designed to provide a mix of theoretical knowledge and practical skills, this course will guide you through the dynamics of engine room operations, ensuring compliance with global standards and regulations, mostly set by IMO.

This course offers an in-depth exploration of the Engine Room, the pivotal component of a ship's operations. It is structured into seven modules; we start by introducing the engine room, the team and the organisational management. Safety is a critical element in day-to-day life as well as in emergencies, and we shall cover all aspects, from what you should wear each day, up to how to proceed during an exceptional event in the engine room. Finally, you will gain an understanding of the operations, maintenance, guidelines and procedures of the ship’s machinery.

It is important to stress that you always orient yourself towards your engine room's specifications and follow your shipping company-approved procedures.

You will be presented with an assessment at the end of this course.

Course Author


With a distinguished career in maritime engineering, I bring to the table a wealth of experience from both practical and academic perspectives. I served for over a decade as a marine engineer at sea, mentoring numerous cadets throughout my tenure, with my most recent role being that of a chief engineer.

Over the past seven years, I have pursued an advanced academic path and proudly hold a Master's Degree and a PhD in Maritime Affairs from two prestigious European universities.

My academic pursuits didn't confine me to the classroom. I have actively participated in European maritime research projects as a consultant, continually updating my knowledge across various shipping facets, including the regulatory framework, decarbonization, safety, and marine environmental pollution prevention.

Since 2017, I have transitioned into academia, utilizing my hands-on experience and scholarly insights to impart maritime knowledge. I've been involved in a broad spectrum of STCW and IMO courses, delivering lectures to marine officers at various institutes and academies across Europe.
