Having recently entered the shipping industry, this course was exactly what I needed as the course is presented from a holistic, practical, perspective and thus it allowed me to see how various aspects of the shipping industry interact and rely upon one another. The course also reaffirmed some of the basic knowledge I already knew about the industry. I would say the course is perfect for those just entering the industry. It was also a pleasure to be taught by someone who is clearly very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about shipping.
