The scope of the book amply covers the level required for the Class 4 and Class 3 Engineer's Certificates of Competency and for the first two years of the Engineer Cadet Training Scheme. Further information is included to cover the Engineering Knowledge syllabus of the Master's Certificate. This book successfully explains the operation of all the ship's machinery and provides an invaluable guide to anyone with a professional interest in marine engineering, with an emphasis always being placed upon safe and correct procedures. Material is included to reflect the greater importance now attached to cost-effective operation of ships in terms of equipment reliability, more fuel-efficient engines and the ever-increasing shift towards automatically operated machinery and the need for fewer engineering crew."@en ;
