Paul Russell MSc BA (Hons)

Paul completed a traditional cadetship with Cunard Shipping Services before serving on all types of vessels from passenger ships to super tankers during his seagoing career.

His sea service also included medium-speed engines powering small tankers, slow-speed engines driving bulk carriers and steam plant providing power for the first container ships.

Paul is joined by a host of expert authors, you can read more here.

I have found the course to be a valuable knowledge builder, both in terms of enhancing previous knowledge and in providing new knowledge.
