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
