The respondents of the study were the 366 BS Marine Transportation, and 216 BS Marine Engineering cadets of VMA Global College and Training Centers, Inc. for A.Y. 2017-2018.
From the foregoing findings of the study, the researchers concluded the following:
Majority of the graduating cadets were extremely aware that after one year shipboard training they can enrol their BS.; Graduating cadets were extremely aware on the Shipboard Training Requirement.; Section Bravo is highly aware on the Shipboard Training Requirements while section Hotel should be given extra attention for the Shipboard Training Requirement.
Thus, researchers recommended that the Dean of Maritime Studies and STO enforce information dissemination regarding the importance and completion of Daily Journal as one of the Shipboard Training Requirements other than Pre-Job Orientation.
The STO should enforce the provisions of the list of Shipboard Training Requirements to all possible sources of information like Bulletin Board at VMA Campus; Shipping companies, social media and VMA Website.
Retain the Pre Job orientation and possible increase the number of hours allocated to STO on the topic on Shipboard Training requirement like Ship Board Training Monitoring; Daily Journal; Training Record Book and Enrollment for BS
