“I am a Marine Surveyor who comes from a marine background but never had any formal training for the job. I certainly have no regrets in undertaking the course. The material given out to remote students was easy to read, informative and will be kept as reference material for future use. At the end of the day I learned a considerable amount. MTA was also very good to deal with and obliging throughout the course. I would certainly recommend this course to other budding new, or old, surveyors.”
