I am Deck Officer, and I started the Bachelor Degree course in February. The path is interesting, it leaves you a lot of freedom to organize yourself for the study, in addition to the time to perform the assignments. It is very handy for those who work or are busy with the family, and besides, the recorded videos are clear and understanding
