“Rick Marstellar was the Marine Chemist that gave us the 24 hour SCP class and it was well distributed and well thought. He explained everything and had a lot of knowledge. He knew the right answer for every question asked.”
Zack A. also gave “5 stars” from the online survey regarding Marine Chemist Service’s 12/14/21 SCP Update class
“I thought for a refresher it was on point, informative, direct and to the point, discussed scenarios in the field that have and had real-world application.”
Anonymous feedback for December 2021 Shipyard Competent Person Update class
Thank you sir! I didn’t get a chance to say so, but I enjoyed your presentation and some of the information you have that doesn’t always get shared by others.
