NMP’s Course Delivery Underwent MARINA Monitoring Inspection

The National Maritime Polytechnic (NMP) training courses underwent monitoring inspection by the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) Office on 3-5 April, 2017 at the NMP’s main complex at Brgy. Cabalawan in Tacloban City.

The inspection was conducted to ensure that the delivery of NMP training programs are in accordance with the written programs, methods and media of delivery, procedures, and course materials prescribed under the STCW Convention, as amended in 2010.

The Key Areas of Evaluation include the Quality Standards System; Organization, Management and Support Staff; Curriculum; Teaching Methods and Media of Delivery; Examination and Assessment; Instructors and Assessors; Admission and Registration; Facilities; Training Equipment; and Simulators.

The inspectors employed stringent methods of evaluation such as interviews with responsible officials, personnel and selected instructors; random interview with trainees; checking and review of relevant processes, procedures, documentation and records; gathering necessary objective evidences; evaluation of relevant processes and procedures on curriculum design, development, review and updating of validation and contents based on STCW Competence Tables of specific modules; observations of ongoing classes and practical exercises.

The findings reveal that delivery of the course is satisfactory in some of the key areas. The agency will promptly address the minor observations within fifteen (15) working days upon receipt of the Monitoring Finding Report.

The team was led by Ms. Nimfa D. Martinez with Capt. Vicente C. Navarro, Chief Engr. Yevhgeny L. Terrazola and Ms. Dana Justine dela Cruz from the MARINA STCW Office. Meanwhile, NMP continues to upgrade its facilities and provide maritime trainings required pursuant to the Standard of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) Convention as amended in 2010 including value-adding courses towards improving the qualifications of Filipino seafarers for their employment acceptability and enhanced competitiveness.

NMP encourages seafarers to avail of the NMP-OWWA (Overseas Workers Welfare Administration) Seafarers’ Upgrading Program (SUP) which entitles the beneficiary to receive financial assistance for training costs from the OWWA.
