Ive take 3 courses this past month, and they were great! The instructors are very knowledgeable and friendly. Most of them have great stories of their past as mariners, which makes the topics more relatable and interesting. 10/10 for everything. When i need refresher courses or upgrades i will only go here from here on out. Thanks MPT!
