The girls in the office are great. They really go out of their way to help the students.
Everything was great!
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.
Awesome as usual!!
Over all, I enjoyed my time at mpt. I got to see some buddies whom I haven't seen in a while and the was a pleasant surprise. Only down side was that it rained...thank you and see you next time. Peace
I had many choices and I'm happy I chose MPT for my Training.
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.
Thank you for the pleasurable experience at your facility. The instructor, Scott, is great at his job!!
Everyone is always very nice and as usual, a great job by the front office - the friendly banter helps to calm the nerves... and Dan Dale continues to be a very good instructor. Thank you much, Bruce
Very good. Very professional
Very pleased with the course and instructor.
