A systems design engineer (BASc), Jeff is actively involved in the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) and is a member of its Certified Marine Electronics Technician development committee. As Western Canada's only NMEA instructor, he holds a NMEA advanced marine electronic installer certification; he also holds marine electrical certification through the American Boat and Yacht Council.

An interest in electronics and electrical power on your boat!

Boat Electrical and Electronics Trouble Shooting Tips

Now that you have identified the major components, join Jeff Cote, an ABYC trained and NMEA certified marine technician, as he reveals the best way to trouble-shoot electrical and electronic problems aboard your boat

In order to get to the bottom of a system malfunction, first understand how something works. 

Start at the beginning and chase the problem one step at a time.  For each component, know the what they need and what they provide.  Learn how to determine if the component is receiving power?  Is it connected to a breaker?  Is it simply a blown fuse?  Learn the trouble shooting techniques to become self-reliant on your boat.

And: Jeff will come to your boat and do a comprehensive review of the electrical systems, at a special value to be offered to attendees of this event.
