A- 5

10.3 Explain the difference between mechanics and electricians tools and indicate the types of fasteners likely to be encountered.

(preferably a suitable engine), and also in the termination and connection of electrical wiring.

the likely hazards to health when not using the correct tool..

SYLLABUS NO 3 ME 11

SUBJECT Practical Projects

INSTRUCTOR'S REFERENCE Lesson Plan 11

Practical participation by cadets is indicated `P' at appropriate stages in the syllabus. At each stage of the Class III Marine Engineering Syllabus, the aim must be to provide cadets with an interesting and enjoyable course, using items with which they can easily relate, eg the unit motor boat, and every opportunity must be taken to provide cadets with `hands-on' experience. Whilst it is appreciated that the classroom cannot be dispensed with completely, particularly when teaching some of the basic principles, it must be borne in mind that the objective of this Class III syllabus is to introduce cadets to a new subject which, if they enjoy it, will encourage them to proceed further in this specialisation.
