    Hello

    I am looking for some information on yacht and small craft surveying courses.
    Is there any body having finished a course with Lloyd´s MA or IIMS recently or still studying ?

    Hi DavidJ
    Thanks for the reply.
    I read that thread and I have tried to contact tgabob.
    I hoped to get some information on small craft surveying courses, ideally from people who are studying or have finished the course recently.

    Hi Paul
    I am interested in doing an on line course in yacht and small craft surveying.
    What do you think about Lloyds academy ?
    Are you getting a good and fair support ?
    Are the assignments covered by the units they provide or do you have to study a lot of other sources to be able to pas the assignments?

    Just begin Marine surveyor
    Look expensive but seems to be professional approach
    regarding exam big interrogation point as I m from Canada and exam suppose to be in UK
    Lloyds academy is attached with Kent College in Uk and look like a really pro school
    Lot of reading an self assessment question at the end of each chapter
    Question need to be develop and required lot of reading
    Two module of 12 completed and no news about any official assessment from college so far

    If you need more info feel free to ask me
    Regards

    Hi Paul
    Thank you for your information, at some later stage I might want to ask you a few more questions regarding the Lloyds course.
    I still try to find out which the best course on the market is.
    I have heard the IIMS course does not have a very good reputation.
    Does any body have practical experience with them ?
    What other options are there to get a diploma in marine surveying ?
