The MAPS Award was exciting to apply for. It’s a huge challenge to afford training classes and this is a great encouragement to keep climbing the hawse pipe. It’s also great to see that the possibilities for my career in sailing are wide open. I was really surprised to see something like this offered. It shows that your firm is tuned into what mariners need to keep up in the U.S. commercial maritime industry. I’m grateful for the opportunity to use this award. You guys are great. I was so glad to see this award is valid for one year. My schedule is constantly changing so this means I can sign up for a class when it makes the most sense for my schedule.
