FURTHER COURSES TO CONSIDER:
British Marine Electrics and Electronics Association (BMEEA) has launched an updated version of its Code of Practice. Version 6 of the BMEEA Code of Practice contains important new information covering electric propulsion and photovoltaic systems.
The sixth edition of the Code is a significant update to its predecessor, encompassing the combination of the small craft DC and AC International Standards Organisation (ISO) standards into the single standard ISO 13297:2020. It also brings the International Standard for Electric Propulsion Systems ISO 16315:2016 into the Code, and offers additional guidance on the installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems.
Due to this update there is a price change to the BMET and MEI Electrical courses. If you have any questions or would like further information, please email Kitty- firstname.lastname@example.org
