In our commitment to build and strengthen the ties with the next generation, Misuga continually produces cadets specifically trained under the Misuga curriculum. The vision of providing quality cadets is intended for the principals’ demand for high-caliber seafarers. This will continue to enhance the reputation of the industry and Filipino seafarers.
The program was established for the following purposes:
– To develop young and well-trained cadets to be future officers onboard Misuga’s managed vessels.
– To provide qualified seafarers who consistently meet or exceed the quality standards of the principals.
Misuga has established harmonious relationships with partner schools that have been genuinely supportive since the beginning of our program. Annually, these schools hold a comprehensive selection exam to endorse freshmen cadets who meet the rigorous criteria of the program.
Misuga Training Division provides the optimum training experience for our officers and crew; nurturing them in the values of:
