PGMA inaugurates P48-M state-of-the-art maritime equipment in Leyte

Manila (21 October) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo yesterday (Tuesday) led the inauguration of the P48-million state-of-the-art maritime training simulators of National Maritime Polytechnic (NMP) in Cabalawan, Tacloban City, a training school under the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

The NMP simulators will give Filipino seafarers the knowledge and competence to operate navigational equipment, monitor and control the ship's engine and electrical power plant, handle liquid cargos, and gain confidence to take on higher responsibilities on board.

Funded by government, these training simulators can also be utilized to conduct practical assessment. The equipment can be linked or integrated for combined deck and engine training exercises similar to actual on board operations.

Upon arrival here, the President briefly chatted with students and engineers of the training school before proceeding to the simulation room with DOLE Secretary Marianito Roque and other officials where she inspected the full-mission bridge simulator, full-mission engine-room simulator, the liquid cargo handling simulator, and the computer-based assessment system.

NMP is mandated to provide maritime training and research that measures up to international standards. It also conducts maritime researches and studies as inputs to policy review and program development in the maritime industry. (PIA) [top]
