Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me your expert opinion concerning the wording of the following three sentences?
1. The present refresher course is destined for those wishing to improve their English for the ICAO proficiency test.
2. There is also available an English language course aimed at preparing students for more advanced technical courses in aircraft technology.
3. The simplest air-breathing engine is the ramjet - a unit having no moving parts at all and consisting simply of an inlet designed to convert the kinetic energy of the air to static pressure, a combustion chamber, and a final expansion nozzle.
Thank you for your efforts.

You could use a long dash rather than a comma after ramjet, but don't use a short hyphen - that's confusing.
You can make a long dash in several ways. For instance:
Use a short dash with spaces on either side of it.
Use two short dashes.
Find a keystroke for the long dash, and use it.
Find a keystroke for the long dash, use it, and put spaces on either side of it.
The short hyphen makes it look like a hyphenated expression, like:
