Love MPT! Always my first choice and the first place I recommend to fellow yachties!
I loved my STCW refresher course at MPT! I absolutely adored all of my instructors. It's easy to learn from people with years of real world experience who truly care about what they do. Some of the subject matter was a bit tedious and repetitive, but the instructors made it fun and brought their personal experience to the table which helped me to retain the information better. I will highly recommend MPT to anyone I come across that is interested in a career in the maritime industry. Thank you for a great experience! -Adrienne Kellogg :)
