Due to the Manila 2010 Amendments, MARINA is now very strict with accrediting maritime training centers for seafarers. Before, you can simply set up a class with instructor and call it a training center. It’s a different story today.

I have compiled a list of MARINA approved training centers as of 31st July 2020. According to the list that I obtained, there are 120 of them operating throughout the Philippines. Honestly, I only know a few of them. This directory helped me gave awareness about the other institutions.

 

The CODVID-19

From 62 training centers, the list is down to 46. This may be due to the coronavirus pandemic wherein the lockdowns contributed to their closures.

Luckily, MARINA approved a blended learning strategy for seafarer’s training to continue. This is in addition to the extension of COPs and Seaman’s book for another twelve months.

 

Training Centers for Seamen in Manila

This article only cites the ones which are located in Metro Manila or within the National Capital Region (NCR). Most of them are found near Kalaw Street, along Roxas Boulevard, the streets of Ermita, Malate and Makati.

Practical site locations vary though quite a number of them are in Cavite and Laguna. However, some training sites reach as far as Sariaya, Quezon.

Aside from the license to operate, their training courses also have periods of validity.

It’s very important to check the training center of your choice before you enroll courses to them. This list will be updated every often. If you take your training in an unapproved institution, MARINA will not recognize your certificate whatever your rank on board is.

You won’t be able to file for a Certificate of Proficiency (COP). As a result, you must take a new course thereby wasting your money and time.

I will add another post with the list of training centers for seafarers located outside Manila. Subscribe to my mailing list to get free updates and be notified first when its out.

May the winds be on your favor.
