I, Hiran Muththettuwage, 34 year old Deck officer with 12 years of sea experience sailing upon high seas, Had the opportunity to attend the Bunker Surveyor course at Mclarens Maritime Academy.
It was a whole new and innovative experience with interactive sessions full of information, Self-study, lecture based and practical sessions.
Vast classrooms with per student multimedia and data ports, ambient lighting, and everything that modern student needs to focus on studies are provided with utmost care.
We have been taken to one of their own vessels MT Ocean Galle and 1st hand experience was given in bunker calculations as well as practical way of handling the job scope as a surveyor.
After the course I can say with confidence that all of us in the batch from master mariners to deck officers capability as a bunker surveyor is fulfilled. I am thankful to McLarens maritime academy and its staff for the knowledge we were given.
