Event

Introduction to Marine DC Electrical Systems
ATTEND IN-PERSON OR ONLINE
This class is being offered in a hybrid format, with participants being able to choose in advance if they will attend in person or online via Zoom.

THE COURSE
This basic course introduces the student to relevant terminology and teaches understanding of the principles behind the DC electrical system of modern boats. It covers the use of a basic instrument such as the digital volt meter (DVM). Avoiding math, the student will learn about the concepts of voltage, current, power, energy, battery capacity, wiring and limited troubleshooting (see more advanced class). Special emphasis is placed on safety and maintenance aimed at maximizing the life of your electrical system. The boats battery array is a major focus area and the class will provide insight into how to best select and maintain them. This class is strongly recommended as a prerequisite for Troubleshooting, Intermediate Electrical, and Lithium Battery courses.

A TRADITION
For nearly 15 years, the Olympia Yacht Club has been conducting classes for our members and other local boaters. The 2024 series of electrical-related courses has now been scheduled, and will be conducted in person at the OYC clubhouse in Olympia. One of our foundational principles is to encourage the science of good seamanship and navigation and thus we are opening these classes to any boater wishing to learn more on these topics.

OUR INSTRUCTOR
The developer and instructor of these classes is past commodore Jerry Budelman, whose qualifications include retired Intel executive, adjunct professor of engineering, holder of over 20 patents and a lifetime instructor and inventor. He loves to teach with an interactive and participatory style.

REGISTER EARLY
Space is limited, so register early! We ask that you register at least one week before the class if possible. Late registrations will be accepted - space allowing - but late registrants may not receive a copy of the course material. A PDF file is also available.

HOSPITALITY
Coffee, tea and other basic refreshments will be provided.

LUNCH
If you are staying for the afternoon course, lunch will be on your own from noon to 1:30 pm. Explore area restaurants or bring a brown bag lunch. Olympia Yacht Club is located adjacent to Bayview Thriftway which has an excellent deli. Order a sandwich ahead for pick-up or head over after the morning course to order your lunch and bring it back to the clubhouse for informal conversation with other participants.
