Culmination Activity of their Foreign Language (FORLAN) class.

VMA students celebrated their successful learning of Japanese language and culture
Close to 600 Marine Education students of VMA Global College and Training Centers (VMAGCTC) attended a Culmination Activity of their Foreign Language (FORLAN) class.
Some 560 second year students enrolled in Third Year of Bachelor of Science (BS) in Marine Transportation and in Second Year of BS in Marine Engineering gathered at Kaiseh Restaurant, a popular Japanese restaurant in Bacolod City, to celebrate their successful completion of their study of the Japanese language and culture under the tutelage of Mr. Arnel Ginete.
VMAGCTC students are given education in Japanese language and culture to make them competitive in the global labor market, especially in Japanese marine vessels and other companies or institutions in Japan.
During the culmination activity, the students introduced themselves with the use of Japanese language and partook of Japanese food and dishes employing confidently the table manners they learned in their FORLAN class.
While taking their dinner, Mr. Ginete told the students to eat every dish they put on their plates, with strong emphasis that they have to eat every grain of rice, because in Japanese culture, leaving even just a grain of rice on one’s bowl is not only wasteful but is a form of disrespect to the farmers who worked hard to grow and harvest every grain of rice.
VMAGCTC Corporate Secretary Epifania Orola-Balenia represented the Administration in the event.
Ms. Balenia commends both Class Instructor Ginete and the students for their passionate and vigorous efforts in making good their studies of the Japanese language and culture in their FORLAN class.* Jgmacaranas, PR Officer

MSAP EXAMINATION 2017 WITH Top 80 Deck Cadets and Top 60 Engine Cadets

1. What is MSAP?
The Maritime School Assessment Program (MSAP) is a nationwide standard academic assessment test for regular second year students taking up Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation (BSMT) or Bachelor of Science in Marine Engineering (BSMarE).
The program is wholly supported by the International Mariners Management Association of Japan (IMMAJ) in Tokyo, Japan and is implemented by the Manila-based Philippine-Japan Manning Consultative Council, Inc. (PJMCCC). IMMAJ is an association of 96 Japanese ship owners. It counts among its members some of the largest shipping companies in the world such as Mitsui-OSK Lines, NYK Lines and K-line. IMMAJ employs up to 30,000 Filipino seafarers at any one time. PJMCC is the association of 65 Filipino manning companies that provide seafarers to vessel’s owned and controlled by the IMMAJ members.
2. What are goals and objectives of MSAP?
The goals and objectives of MSAP are:
To assess the performance of BSMT and BSMarE students presently enrolled in maritime schools via a standard academic test which covers English, Mathematics and fundamental Deck/Engine Technical subjects.
To benchmark Philippine Maritime Schools against industry set-standards of academic performance for maritime students based on the examination results.
To assist maritime schools identify their strengths and areas of improvement based on the performance of students who took the examination.
To assist maritime schools in terms of faculty upgrading to ensure quality of instruction hence improve the quality of graduates coming from their institutions.
To give maritime schools a level-playing field in terms of recruitment/employment opportunities for their students/graduates.
To reward deserving students with Cadetship slots reference MSAP-related programs implemented in partnership with the government and other industry associations belonging to the Joint Manning Group (JMG)
3. What are the benefits of MSAP?
The benefits are:
Three (3) months accredited shipboard training onboard the T/S Kapitan Felix Oca with a monthly stipend of USD60.00 for 120 MSAP passers who are accepted to the IMMAJ-PJMCC Cadetship Training Program (CTP).
Nine (9) months fully subsidized shipboard training on board a Japanese vessel with a monthly s tipend of USD235.00 for those who are qualified in item 2 above.
Additionally, manning companies, who are the end-users of the graduates from maritime schools, have committed to give preference to MSAP qualifiers when recruiting additional cadets for their ship owner principals.
The MSAP is supported by the members of the Philippine Association of Maritime Institution (PAMI) as well as some non-members. Maritime schools who participated in the past exercises have seen the Program’s merit as it gives them required feedback as to the strong points that they have and the areas they should improve on. The MSAP also gives the Maritime School a level playing field in terms of recruitment/employment of the students/graduates.
