Ambrey’s maritime security teams are well trained and performed their duties with discipline. Our vessel masters and crews have always felt reassured by their experience and calm approach. The drills they perform with the crew, recommendations they make to further harden the vessel against attack have created a safe and secure environment on board our vessels which has ensured the impact of piracy on our business has been minimised.

The course was delivered in a professorial, informal and enjoyable manner by instructors with masses of maritime experience which was hugely beneficial for me. I particularly liked the interaction with the Operations team and other key members of staff and look forward working with you in the future.
