Back to school…
I’ve been student at MPT in Ft. Lauderdale the last two weeks, and have really liked the 3 week deck officer test prep program they have set up. The instructor “CG” is really helpful. She’s been teaching upper level mariners for 15+ years. Last year I was at LAMPI in Houma studying with Capt. Bruce. Comparing the two…MPT is worth the higher cost. Having a structured study program where the whole class is doing the same type problems together has really helped. This year I’m confident I’ll be able to test soon after class.
The best advice for anyone interested in the MPT test prep study program is to study your Navigation Rules beforehand, brush up on your basic plotting skills (converting speed/time/distance) etc… If your working as a mate/master you should know how to plot. In class “CG” will give you a hard time if you hold a license and can’t plot a course.
Good luck all to all those studying!
