As a professional I have found the course very interesting with full technical assistance, the lecturers are well experienced and immediately available. The course is an excellent guideline in developing a marine surveying career.
The flexibility of the course ensured I was able to complete my assignments and understand the subject clearly. I learned a lot about shipbuilding and ship repair even though I have docked more than eighty vessels.
The course was amazing and I would recommend to everyone who is interested in shipbuilding and repair, whether person is not familiar or a professional currently in the industry but wanting to improve their career path.
I have docked more than 500 vessels as a Dock Master and learned a lot more about ship repair through the course. The flexibility of the course and knowledge gained is priceless. All the material is very educational.
I have found this Diploma in Shipbuilding and Ship Repair to have been very informative, professionally presented and of a high quality. I’m very proud to be associated with the MTA, and to display the MTA logo and qualification with my name.
Very satisfied with the course content. The support staff are very prompt in addressing any grievances. My understanding of the role of the Pilot has been further improved after doing this course.
Trans-oceanic sailor Jimmy Cornell once wrote
'The planning stage of a cruise is often just as enjoyable as the voyage itself, letting one’s imagination loose on all kinds of possibilities. Yet translating dreams into reality means a lot of practical questions have to be answered'
'Whenever your preparations for the sea are poor, the sea worms its way in and finds the problems'
Undertaking an MTA course shows commitment to self-development which all good business employers look for in potential employees.
Achieving an MTA Diploma makes you stand out from the crowd and builds on your own personal knowledge.
It was a very interesting and unique course. It showed me the counterpart of the routine teamwork between the pilot and ship master. As Captain it helps me to understand much better the pilot job, it changed my pre conceived ideas and improved my relationship with pilots whilst we are working together. I am very satisfied with the course; it satisfied my expectations and will surely contribute a lot to my professional growth.
