I loved taking this course with Bernard. He makes what would otherwise be monotonous, enjoyable! I asked questions and he made the work in class relatable to the cross-atlantic passages I do regularly for work. I really enjoyed learning more about my passage planning software. Thank you.
Another great job by all! I was especially appreciative of Dan Dale’s professionalism and the very nice remark, “Thanks for choosing MPT” that he gave each of us.
Keep up the good work! The facilities are fantastic. I look forward to more classes at MPT and the SMART center.
Great all around, especially new building! Makes taking classes with the simulator a lot easier.
The new SMART building is perfect what a nice facility!!
Even though I have worked quite a bit with ECDIS in the field this was one of the most enjoyable courses I have attended. Matt is a great instructor with a solid knowledge base and has a knack at getting the info across in a concise and digestible fashion.
I don't know how MPT could improve such a top notch program. With excellent instructors, and knowledgeable, and helpful staff in the office, and a great facility that is comfortable and a perfect place to learn!
MPT is an excellent school
