Career Tips

How to be a scholar of Maritime Academy of Asia & the Pacific

The Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP) in Mariveles, Bataan is a leading provider of quality maritime education and training in the Philippines.

It is said that when you graduate in MAAP, you will likely succeed in your seafaring career since the institution has instilled you the necessary skills, character and knowledge.

Last March I attended the Simulator Trainer and Assessor Course in MAAP. During my short stay inside the campus, I observed that their state-of-the-art facilities and training equipment were indeed conducive for learning.



I think MAAP is truly committed to hone future leaders of the maritime industry. Hence, if you aspire to be a seafarer in the future why not avail the institution’s scholarship grant?
