Great class with Matt. I enjoyed the simulation. We spent some time on the computer steering, maneuvering and docking. Fun. Staff nice. Room cleaned.
No improvement needed in my opinion. Dan is an excellent instructor and has a passion for teaching and definitely helped me learn new electronic navigational skills.
I enjoy taking classes at MPT. Instructors are always knowledgeable and professional. Would definitely recommend this school to anyone furthering their career.
