I had an excellent experience at MPT and in Fort Lauderdale. Despite hurricane IAN we were able to complete the course. I would like to take all my future training classes at MPT. Great staff!
It was a great week. All went fine. The lecturer was profesional with knowledge of the subject. The rooms were cleaned. The front staff friendly and helpful.
A great course that became phenomenal when coupled with the knowledge and expertise provided by our instructor (Mr. Fields). Also want to highlight the perfect tempo of the class with the right mix of instruction and time afforded in the simulators to hone ship driving skills. This course met every expectation and much more!
