NMP Launches New Mobile App


TACLOBAN CITY – With the advent of modern technology, the National Maritime Polytechnic (NMP) has rolled out a new mobile app entitled NMP App which aimed to aid its stakeholders in verifying the authenticity of NMP issued certificates.

Its dashboard displays the options to verify the authenticity of a certificate by using the Name and Birth Date of the trainee, Certificate Number and other pertinent information.

The app also features a side function which allows trainees to verify if they are already enrolled in their preferred schedule for Professional Development Courses (PDC), namely: Training Course for Instructors (IMO Model Course 6.09), Assessment, Examination and Certification of Seafarers (IMO Model Course 3.12), and Training Course for Simulator Instructors (IMO Model Course 6.10).

“The app is very useful, good, and convenient to all trainees of NMP”, said Mr. Donald A. Cosep when asked for his feedback during the mobile app launching on 13 December 2019 at the NMP Training Building.
The mobile app is a free service for NMP stakeholders with Android devices and gadgets. It is available for download in Google Play Store.
In compliance with Republic Act 10173 otherwise known as the “Data Privacy Act (DPA) of 2012” the mobile app provides security features. Any misuse or manipulation of the personal data provided in the search result will be subjected to the provisions of the DPA, its Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR), and other relevant policies, including issuances of the National Privacy Commission (NPC).

In accordance with the NMP Privacy Policy Manual, the Agency will respect and uphold the data privacy rights and ensure that all data collected from its trainees and other third party individuals are processed pursuant to the general principles of transparency, legitimate purpose, and proportionality as stated in the DPA.
The NMP app will be updated should there be a need to include other features such as online payment / enrollment and online dormitory reservation.
The e-verification can also be accessed via NMP website using the typical web browsing desktop application such as Google Chrome, Mozilla, and other web browsing app on windows and Macintosh (MAC) operating systems.
