As part of my studies to obtain a Master Class 1, I had successfully completed Business and Law for the Shipmaster. The Certificate in Marine Salvage Law put the whole topic into perspective, not only from a shipmaster’s but the various players, salvors, P&I clubs to name only these. The qualification has helped me get a much deeper understanding of the complexities that surround a salvage operation particularly from the legal side and some of the financial implications. Very informative and well-structured course aimed at everyone to get a professional grasp of the legality around salvage

The course materials were well constructed. I found the structure of the modules very helpful, with the progression from the broader principles and history of salvage, through to the details of the convention, specific clauses and forms, as well as the link and relationship to other conventions and areas of law
