Training centers in Visayas and Mindanao regions prove to be helpful for seafarers since majority lives in provinces. However, there are only a few training centers in Manila which are able to build branches in those areas.

This could be due to the fact that many seafarers are highly concentrated in the Metro. Many shipping companies as well as government agencies are located in huge cities.

These kinds of structure gives more attraction for seamen to flock in huge urban centers like in Manila.

 

Metro Manila or Province?

I personally prefer to have my training in the provinces. First is, the cost of living is much cheaper. Second, its not very crowded. And lastly, I’m much closer to my families.

I can clearly recall my training experience in National Maritime Polytechnic in Tacloban City. It is a training center established by the government.

Their training quality is very high and even simulators exceed some of those in Manila. I also listed approved training centers in Luzon outside Manila.

Starting with  Region VI (Western Visayas), here are the Accredited MTIs outside Luzon.
