Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) today announced an agreement to introduce the Third Year Program with seven merchant marine schools in the Magsaysay Institute of Shipping (MIS*1) in Philippines. The move is aimed at cultivating seafarers who support high level of safety standards in vessel operations.

MIS selected new Filipino seafarers from among third-year students at merchant marine schools, and gave them one year of training on MOL’s training ship and other MOL-operated vessels. The new program will bring forward selection of new seafarers by one year. They will be educated and trained for the second half of a four-year curriculum at university, completing their university education with courses under MIS management.

The program was licensed as equivalent to university-level education under the Academe-Industry Linkage Program*2 promoted by the Philippine government, and will start in June.
