Assessment Centers, or ACs, are maritime institutions accredited and approved by MARINA to conduct practical assessments.

Practical Assessment is the method used to assess a candidate by giving a close-to-reality situation on board where they must apply their theoretical knowledge.

Officers and Ratings undergo such assessments to prove their competencies and be given certificates.

Here are 32 assessment centers throughout the country, from NCR to Cebu.
