"Shipbroker Fast Track"
Dear VS,I purchased Fast Track and read it. I liked it. Is Fast Track easy to understand? It didn't look that way in the beginning. I tried skipping around but that was difficult (unlike "inside shipbroking"). I wanted to start with the dialogues, but couldnt fully understand them without reading "essential concepts. "Even more so for the negotiations portion. But when I read from start to finish, it made sense and seems helpful. There's a necessary flow to it. "What part of Fast Track did you find most useful? The ship broker dialogues. They seem like they give valuable insight. Looking forward to more. Peter(Houston)
I've gone through your training manual. It's an excellent insight to the shipbroking industry. Good work! Adrian (Singapore)
Hi. As a trainee shipbroker I think your fast track is easy to understand. The shipbroker conversations are very realistic. I am looking forward to reading more. Peter (Athens)
The dialogues feel truely authentic. Congratulations! Emre Tuzer (Junior Broker - Istanbul)

Fast Track Blurb!
You have already read 'Inside Shipbroking' or you have a good understanding of the general shipping industry gained over a few years.
NOW its time to take your understanding to the next level.
Unique express learning technique
The Virtual Shipbroker has developed a ‘Fast Track’ four step plan to learning dry cargo ship broking essentials and the chartering language - at the same time!
Amongst other things this method includes ‘Essential Concepts’, Virtual Shipbroker Negotiations, and the unique ‘Shipbroker Dialogues’ which is a running dialogue of typical chartering conversations between dry cargo shipbrokers during the course of a day.
"Here is the 80 percent you need to know in order to hit the ground running. The rest is just details".
Why is it so cheap and relatively short at only 39 pages?
Think 80/20 rule or the KISS principal
Here is an insiders secret. Eighty percent of a ship brokers work is based on a core set of principals and processes. In my considered opinion, gained over 20 years in the industry, these essential elements should only take 20 percent of your time to absorb and understand. This understanding should be 'workable' in the real world.
You could bury yourself in shipping academic books and spend thousands on shipping courses, but the harsh truth is that most of that training will go in one ear and out the other. And your bank account will be many thousands less. Until you actually start working in the industry and applying those facts, all that preparation will more than likely mean nothing in terms of practical use.
I recognise that!
So what was my goal in writing this manual? To give you the essentials, at the cheapest possible price, for you to absorb and comprehend in the shortest possible time.
After reading "shipbroking Fast Track' will you be able to go into the markets and speak and act like a shipbroker with years of experience. YES and NO! No course or book will prepare you for immediate action BUT importantly "shipbroking Fast Track' will enable you to speak with some knowledage and on most things shipping. This is a great start!
Here is my Guarantee
If you have already read 'Inside Shipbroking' and you have now read and taken time to absorb 'shipbroker Fast Track' you will effectively have greater dry cargo shipbroking knowledge than 80 percent of the Shipping Industry. You are perfectly placed to hit the ground running.
(BTW - You will spend the next 20 years learning the remaining 20 percent! Then you can call yourself an expert).
So in conclusion Ship broker Fast Track will
- Save you years in terms of training when you could be earning money.
- Save thousands from your hip pocket.
- Give you all the knowledge you need to start your career in shipbroking.
All for the price of a song!
