It is incredible how much one can still learn from this industry. This course provides just that and the best thing of all is that you get direct access to some of the biggest minds out there, their opinion and their insight! The course teaches a practicing surveyor good tips on marine casualty investigation. The contents are superb and the case studies are fantastic.

This course has summed up the loose ends on many issues for me. It is very easily understandable, very organised and contains logical presentation. My thirst has been quenched!
