I've been to a half dozen maritime schools and yours was the most impressive one yet. I look forward to returning to MPT for more classes soon!

Dan Dale was the 5th or 6th instructor I've had here at MPT. While they all had their strong suits, they were all exceptional at what they do. I've been to 3 different maritime training centers in my journey towards a 1600 ton license as a hawsepiper and MPT has them all beat by a landslide.

Keep up the good work. You have a friendly, helpful staff. Dan Dale knew his stuff and shared his knowledge well. To me, Leslie was very helpful and helped me do what I needed to find the TWIC office, find a doctor to take my physical exam and drug screen and then helped me prepare my documents to send off to the USCG for license renwal. To me, Leslie is a star.
