Possibly the best training I’ve had in my 40 years at sea. I needed the certificate for STCW and already had the CG testing done. I reviewed and practiced prior to class. I’d suggest sending study material out to all students prior to class so they can freshen up basic stability, formulas, etc.

Excellent class diving more in depth from basic stability. Tough class and still much to learn, however, I feel much more prepared for testing and real world applications. Instructor truly knows the material and how to present it to students.

I learned more about Stability in a week than in a semester long class at a Maritime College. Everything was explained and broken down very well. The pace of the class was perfect. I had a wonderful experience.

Had Jack Krantz again for Stability. Never met anyone in the industry as knowledgeable, with the experience to back it up. I dreaded this course like the plague and I'm certain no one could have made it more interesting and understandable than Jack.
