Nick Gladwell



The Society of Consulting Marine Engineers & Ship Surveyors (SCMS) have had a long and close relationship with Lloyds Maritime Academy (LMA) and many of our members have studied with LMA. SCMS offer discounts on membership to those applicants that have studied with LMA as we believe the LMA courses are a must for those preparing to become a marine surveyor
