The International Maritime Employers’ Council (IMEC) offers a cadet-training program that nurtures young Filipinos’ dream to become world-class ship officers.
According to its official website, over 600 cadets had successfully completed, with 480 more currently engaged on its Enhanced Cadet Training Program.
IMEC’s cadet-scholars enjoy free tuition, food and accommodation, uniform and first class trainings, among other perks, courtesy of the institution’s shipping company member – sponsors.
Not to mention that they are being honed in none other school but the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP), a top-notch maritime institution of higher learning in the country.
Like the NSA Cadet Program, the scholars have to complete a 2-1-1 maritime education scheme.
Their first two years are spent in school while their third year is for actual apprenticeship – the time they learn how to live, toil and survive the challenging life at sea.
Finally, they return back to MAAP to complete their college degree on their fourth year.
