We all should thank you for making available such good study material, properly put in different relevant sections; it shows the dedication and effort put behind it. Till date there were no proper books or materials available to study from. We would have to rely on Xerox available of all kinds of different assorted notes. Now it’s all available on just a click of a mouse. Thank you once again for this wonderful LMS.

I am preparing for my 2nd mates exam. This ADU preparatory learning thing is very helpful by all means. I am glad that I have a chance to be a part of it. Though the program was since 2016, I only did come to know about this recently. It seems that the program will only be available till April 30th, 2018. I request from the bottom of my heart to kindly not end the program and continue for the well being of other candidates too. Kindly acknowledge if possible. Regarding the program, please be kind and do the needful.

I have used your extensive material but my experience has shown that topic wise questions with answers will be much more helpful for students studying for orals, since even with studying the complete course material; I personally have found that surveyors ask questions which I am not able to answer.

The amount and quality of information available are excellent. The support given to all the questions asked is excellent. It was highly useful to me while clearing my MEO class 2. I just hope DG shipping makes this as an alternative instead of attending the regular classroom preparatory courses.  The job of a seafarer is such that they have to take a break from sea service while doing these preparatory courses.

I greatly benefited from e-Learning portal due to its concise collection of important and practical notes,  impressive and attractive video learning alongside highly involving exercise questions; and recommend this to every class4 preparing student.

My honest opinion regarding the notes: they are sufficient enough for the exam, eliminate referring too many authors and require minimal effort to grasp and encompass every minute topic related to shipping on a practical platform. 

However, I regret this wealth of knowledge wasn’t available to me as a student in the marine institute (b-tech 1st-final year) and during sail as an engine cadet. It cleared very basic concepts which would have helped me during my course as a b-tech marine student rather than during my short-term preparatory process a month prior to class4 orals.

Glad to know that you are constantly upgrading and evolving the process of e-learning. I personally feel that it’s in present form is very beneficial to students preparing for various competency exams in India. Introducing a new section to record and share the experiences of students would be very much desirable and appreciated as it can be used by other aspiring individuals in their preparations. The more we can learn from others mistakes and others strengths, the better our preparation will be. I fully agree with you and would like to be very thankful as have greatly benefited from your classes and study material. In our need to prepare for exams, we often come across loads and tons of study material, some genuine and some not so original. And in this process sometimes we tend to pick up and learn wrong things. But after reading the study material on your website I was fully assured that what I am reading is correct, precise. As it is approved by DG Shipping itself.

I am very thankful to the team who made this “e-learning”, It is really helpful in preparing for my competency exams. Videos and animations were the highlights of e-learning.  It will be nice if SOLAS and MARPOL are elaborated more with latest amendments. Thank you, team!
