  • 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.

  • The course content is excellent in both technical and practical aspects. The instructors are all subject matter experts in their field of work and it showed. I would recommend this course to any one considering starting or returning to a career in the maritime sector.
