Capt. Tom Rooney runs a great program. There is a lot of material jammed into a short amount of time, but it never felt rushed and Tom provided feedback throughout the exercises. Tom also prepares the Mariner in advance with a homework packet/ assessment prior to reporting aboard. I highly recommend this to any Mariner looking to advance in the towing industry. Thank you Tom and Ken at USMRC!

Received my TOAR from Captain Tom Rooney and was beyond satisfied with the entire experience. Captain Tom couldn’t have been more accommodating and eased the stress of the assessment, making the process smooth and professional. Tom’s passion and knowledge in this field is admirable and I am grateful for the time and effort him and his team put forth during the simulation.

5 STAR MARITIME TRAINING INSTITUTE!. Captian Thomas Rooney and his associates are second to none in the maritime instruction field. State-of- the -art facility, matched by hands on training and the passing on of knowledge, that only a master of his craft can provide.

Had an excellent experience with Tom and crew at Maritime Toar Assessment. Like many mariners looking to get signed off, my company was lacking in available DE’s. I arrived pretty nervous as never having run a simulator before and some tasks seemed daunting. Tom explained everything extremely well and through the pre trip simulator orientation class, he made sure I was well prepared before we started the assessments. Both the simulator and software are state of the art. Exposing you to real life situations exactly as you would encounter at sea. I can’t say enough about my awesome experience working with these guys and highly recommend it for any mariner looking to complete their TOAR.
