“Be the best that you can be and see the world for  free…

NSA Philippines Cadet Program is the most outstanding and promising program of Association of Shipowners’ Training and Education Project (ASO-ATEP), the objective is to improve the maritime education in the Philippines.

At present, the program is working with six (6) different maritime Academies: Philippine Merchant Marine Academy; Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific; University of Cebu – Maritime Education and Training Center; John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation – Bacolod; DMMA College of Southern Philippines; John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University – Molo; John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University – Arevalo; and Univesity of Cebu – Lapulapu and Mandaue.

The NSA Philippines Cadet Program, formerly NIS Class Project was initiated in 1993 by the Steering Committee of Association of Shipowners’ Training and Education Project (ATEP) under the Norwegian Training Center – Manila. It started with a pilot class of 150 cadets. A total of about 2600 students participate in the program. So far, tests and feedbacks from principals show that these cadets are best prospects for becoming first class officers.

The Norwegian Shipowners’ Association (NSA) hopes the Cadet Program may serve as a model or instrument in the promotion of quality education in the Philippines in compliance with the STCW ’95 requirements. As a model, it has introduced significant changes related to the enhancement of the maritime educational system in the Philippines. These changes have contributed to a new outlook and confidence among concerned parties, NSA and the Shipowners and the Philippines. The Program has proved that the Filipino seafarers, given the chance and appropriate resources, could definitely excel and eventually prove that they have the potential to become qualified and competent seafarers, highly competitive in the world maritime market.

At present, we are very proud to say that about 1600 Officers serves NIS or Norwegian controlled vessels graduated from the Cadet Program.

    hello good day!
    It’s really nice to hear that you had this kind of scholarship that can help the needy one.
    Mostly, the people who are dreaming/soaring to be a marine someday,this is a god’s giving grace for us.But unfortunately,as i read the requirements to be meet I lost my hopes because, frankly I do have 80% and above grades but some are not it’s lower than that and my ave. grade is only 82% plus but, i suited the other requirements and that’s only my problem.Furthermore, I am tough/good when it comes with academics.I am longing for you to understand regarding this.I hope I can take the examination and pass the requirements as long as possible.THANK YOU AND GODBLESS!

    -Prits Gerald L. Logronio-

    • Prits, please approach any scholl nera to you..where you from?

      • I’m from brgy. lower kalunasan sir, the nearest school is university of cebu-mambaling campus but, still i’m preferred if I will be located at UC-lapu-lapu or mandaue campus.We’ve been there at uc-mambaling today and they gave us a lists of requirements it says that i should have 80% above of grades from first to fourth grading and at least 85% of my ave. grade.Frankly some of my grades are low it is because I was so depressed cause the company of my father has shut down.
