We are very grateful for the company's continuous development and enhancement of professional career and abilities of all surveyors, especially the eight (8) surveyors/participants who were able to complete and pass the online training course on Certificate of Cargo Surveying at Lloyd’s Maritime Academy, for the "Essential knowledge and skills needed to prevent and assess the damage of goods transported by sea"
