TRIDENT receives more positive feedback for the MSO Course!
From time to time, Trident receives feedback from former students that have qualified as MSO's and then gone on to work in the industry through our extensive and ever increasing network of Private Maritime Security Companies that recognise the obvious benefits of the Trident training standard.
Here is one of our most recent Testimonials from the Trident Maritime Security Operator (MSO) Course:
“Having been in the military for a number of years & working in an office for the past year & a half, I was looking for a chance to get in to the Maritime Security industry. After doing a lot of research in to the market & speaking to numerous employers I decided that my time & money would be best invested with Trident Operations. The course was also recommended to me by an ex-Royal Marine, who completed the course & placed a lot of emphasis on the high level of content & the knowledge that was presented across by the Trident instructor. I also have other friends in the industry that have completed other courses in the field, although the relevance of these has been extremely minimal in comparison after discussing them in depth.
In my professional opinion, the course covers vital information that makes the transition from being in the military to working in a similar context in civilian life very smooth & specific to the Maritime role that is expected of an operator. Covering simple aspects like knot tying & charts to subjects of the laws that govern & affect the industry. Softer skills like etiquette on-board the vessel is covered, which demands a lot of emphasis whilst working in the industry & I put a lot of weight behind the tour & visit to a working vessel to assess it completely for security, consider hardening measures in differing scenarios, to gain familiarisation with a vessel & to understand the Maritime rhetoric.
Having passed the course, I have gained employment as a Maritime Security Operator & I am certain that this would not have been possible without the vast & relevant knowledge that the Trident instructor & the course provided me. I have managed to pass on to my current team, a vast amount of the information that I have retained from my MSO course. My Team Leader has also decided that he wants to complete the course, even though he has over a year’s experience in the industry.
Since being at sea, the vessel that I have been protecting has had numerous approaches & suspicious vessels in the vicinity. The level of knowledge that I have gained from Trident has provided me with the ability to react & respond correctly, efficiently & lawfully whilst maintaining the ships daily routine with as little hindrance as possible to their operations whilst ensuring complete peace of mind to the entire crew & master.
Personally, I feel that the high quality of the MSO course that Trident Operations teaches should be a standard across the industry as the relevance of the material, the vast knowledge that the Trident instructor has in the field & also the chances for employment post course are fantastic. I would highly recommend this course to any of my previous & current colleagues, which I have done, with some since completing the course, & they also have great things to say about the content & quality of it too.”
