    My husband took this course and it was not easy. Especially being out of a classroom for many years. Captain Jamie was great and he really knows his stuff Joe said. Great teacher!! and not boring, kept Joe on his toes.

    To anyone considering this course at this location, I highly recommend you do it. It's a lot of information crammed into a 7 day course but with Jamie Shaffer as the instructor and a willingness to learn you Are gonna pass. The instructor is very knowledgeable about all the curriculum bc he uses all the same information on a daily basis. He's able to break it down and explain it in different ways so that everyone is able to grasp the information and retain it. I've seen it first hand. The facility is very nice, well kept and has a welcoming feeling. The information given is useful to all levels. I am very happy with my experience and very happy with my results. Thank you to everyone at Maritime Training Center I look forward to leveling up and attending again.

    The entire experience was absolutely amazing! The instructors were extremely experienced and knowledgeable. For me this is a renewal and I left the course feeling as if it was my first time given the amount of info that was shared; particularly outside the curriculum requirements.

    Jamie is one of the best instructors I have had in a long time. He has expert knowledge in the marine field and is able to translate that expert skill to learners like me. He is patient and willing to teach until the student understands the material; even if this means he has to work with the student one on one until they do. I am SO glad I took this class instead of some no name online captain class! Thanks again Capt. Jamie!

    This course was outstanding and I’d highly recommend. I traveled 5 states to take it with this group and it was definitely worth it. MTC with Jamie and Robert was precessional, organized, and very informative they know what they are doing.

    Capt Jamie Schaffer presented the course material in a professional and understandable fashion. I chose MTC because it’s a turn key program. CPR and safety programs are offered along with personal help to submit all the necessary papers to the Coast Guard. The facility is Coast Guard approved and promotes a learning atmosphere second to none.

    This was without doubt a really enjoyable learning experience, captains Jamie and Bubba had the patience of saints and really went above and beyond their pay grades to ensure success, I have to thank you both I know I was pretty high up there on the all time challenging student list.
    Much appreciated and great value for money, if your considering doing this mainstream online “stop” call captain Jamie instead, set the time aside, invest in yourself and enroll in his class, it will be the best decision you made.

    MTC offers the best maritime training in the area! Captain Shaffer trains his seaman well, and he stands by his seaman to ensure their paperwork is correct and that they succeed in the industry. I appreciate all of the assistance that my husband and I recieved during and after the training.

    MTC has helped guide me to achieve my 100 masters license and has been there every step of the way. From class work to home work to submitting paperwork with the coastguard Jamie has been there through it all. MTC offers a productive clean class room with lots of aids to help you achieve whatever license you so desire. I will recommend to all my friends and anyone in this industry looking to get a leg up. I Will continue to come back for years to come.
