Master 500 Oral Exam Preparation
Your Oral Preparation course is one of the most important you will do. Consequently, we align your needs closely with our training to ensure you have the best chance of passing the MCA examination at the first attempt. Our pass rates are very high.
We will provide you with a qualified Master Mariner who will be with you for the full duration of your preparation. We do not ask you to pay for a desk for self-study as some providers do.
Your instructor will begin with a mock oral examination which allows the instructor to assess your subject knowledge and then tailor the instruction provided to bring your knowledge up to the required standard in all subjects. At the same time they will be coaching and advising on exam questions and on answering technique.
Our pass rates are very high due to the level of commitment shown by our instructors, who have first-hand experience of the examination processes, in depth knowledge of the commercial maritime sector and a wealth of knowledge from working at sea.
