Popular Marine Survey Course . . .
The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) will offer its popular marine survey course aboard the legendary Queen Mary, October 9-11, 2014. Once the grandest ocean liner in the world, the vessel now serves as a Long Beach hotel, historical landmark and entertainment venue. ASA’s popular ME208: Marine Survey course is an intermediate level course that addresses the topics of marine equipment and its special language, the marine industry and function of marine surveyors and appraisers, the three approaches to value as they apply to commercial and yacht appraisal, identification of marine equipment and systems, preparing a report and the different types of Bluewater and Brownwater equipment. It was written for the non-marine professional who wants basic knowledge and for the young marine professional who wants to learn more about the marine survey business and, particularly, marine asset appraisal. The course is growing into a must-attend for those in any specialty who want education hours and for those who want to increase their knowledge in an industry that has the interest of many investors.
