a. FIRST AVAILMENT
“Sa unang sakay mo palang o sa unang kontrata mo (overseas / international only), pagkababa mo ng barko ay pwede ka na kaagad maka-avail ng free training worth 7,500 pesos (only ONE training). Kapag mahigit sa 7,500 pesos ang presyo ng training ay ikaw na ang mag-aabono sa kulang na halaga. At kung sakaling hindi naman po umabot, hindi rin ibibigay sa’yo ang sobra sa 7,500 pesos.”

b. SUCCEEDING AVAILMENT
“ After mo ma-avail ang unang training ay makaka-avail ka ulit ng libreng training sa kada 3 sakay o 3 kontrata. Sakaling hindi mo natapos ang kontrata ay pwede parin makakuha basta pagkatapos ng 3 sakay. Ang importante ay yung tatak sa passport mo ng pag-alis at ng pagbalik mo ng Pilipinas. Counted na yun sa bawat kontrata.”

c. VALIDITY
“Bibigyan ka ng OWWA ng ‘Notice of Award’ kapag naipasa mo ang lahat ng mga requirements. Dapat mo itong magamit within 45 days dahil kung hindi, kailangan mo mo na ulit ng next contract or sakay para maka-avail ng free training.”

Special thanks to 2M Orolfo, John M for sharing his personal experience availing OWWA’s SUP.
