NMP inks agreement with PIT on conduct of training
July 27, 2022

TO advance the capabilities of maritime cadets by ensuring that necessary competencies are obtained through effective maritime instructions and quality training, the National Maritime Polytechnic (NMP), the only government maritime training and research institution in the country, entered into a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with the Palompon Institute of Technology (PIT), a state college in Region 8 (Eastern Visayas).

The collaboration was made possible with PIT's utmost desire to comply with the requirements of the Joint Commission on Higher Education and the Maritime Industry Authority (Marina) Memorandum Circular 1, Series of 2019, titled "Policies, Standards and Guidelines for the Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation and Bachelor of Science in Marine Engineering Programs."

"This partnership is an affirmation of NMP's capability in terms of expertise and facilities needed in the effective delivery of quality training to our maritime cadets," said NMP Officer in Charge Executive Director Mayla Macadawan.

The training that will be availed by PIT from NMP consists of Basic Training with Padams, Shapims and GSTS; Security Awareness Training and Seafarers with Designated Security Duties; and Medical First Aid.

The MoA shall take effect for a period of three years (2022-2025) unless otherwise extended as mutually agreed by both parties.
