Soaring high…


Bicol Merchant Marine Colleg, Inc. (BMMCI) started 15 years ago in February, 1993, in a boarding house in Piot, Sorsogon City. Today, a four-storey school building overlooking Sorsogon Bay houses this educational institution that caters to a growing student population taking up the nautical engineering, customs administration, hospitality management, and the one-year rating courses.

BMMCI primarily offers maritime education, driven by the vision to produce graduates who are globally competitive. A private non-sectarian non- stock college, accredited by the Commission on Higher Education, BMMCI complies with local and international standards as mandated by the International Maritime Organization.

On August 28, 2001 to 2004, the Quality Management System of BMMCI was approved and certified by ABS Quality Evaluations Inc. Houston, Texas USA, of the following Quality Management Standards: ISO 9002 : 1994 and ISO 9001 : 2000. On January 10 2005, the QMS of BMMCI was approved and certified by TUV Management Services of Seoul Korea, a subsidiary of the TUV SUDDEUTSCHLAND Group, the largest TUV group in Germany; of the Quality Management Standard : ISO 9001 : 2000, covering the development and provision of maritime education.

BMMCI equips its students with both knowledge and skills before they go on actual boardship, using facilities such as mock bridge, radar/ARPA simulator and other needed equipment and laboratories where they could do drills and perform the theories that they have learned inside the classrooms.

BSMT and BSMARE students involve themselves in actual ship familiarization. BSHM student are not only trained in the laboratories but are immersed in different hotels in the Sorsogon, Albay, Camarines Sur, and Manila.

Last month, BMMCI marked its 15th foundation anniversary with a big celebration.

A dream come true

The academic year 2007-2008 saw the full implementation of the partnership between BMMCI and the Magsaysay Maritime Corporation (MMC) particularly the MIS-MOL LINES Ltd., one of most prestigious manning agencies that provides the maritime industry with quality marine officers. This partnership guarantees deserving graduates for maritime courses a placement/employment right after graduation, and training for those who do not initially qualify. BMMCI is now, one of the training grounds for marine officers in the country to man the international vessels in the near future.

BMMCI instructors/trainors together with other instructor of MMC-MIS-MOL LTD. partner school over the Philippines have been givenw free training and seminars on formulating modules and syllabi for implementation this school year 2007-2008, at the MIS training Center in Dasmariñas Cavite, so that partner schools would have a unified system of curriculum and strategy.

This college has molded and built several dreams. Just recently, Benil G. Bagsit and Michiel M. Camposano passed the licensure examination for marine engineering. C/E Nerbin C. Payos, OIC Francis Barrameda and OIC Arnel Espinola are also undergoing apprenticeship sponsored by MARINA SECOJ in Japan, while Allan Fungo just finished the same training and is now preparing for the board exams. Also recognized are Mark Mira Anthony N. Mira, Jenny F. Letada, Pio L. Flores III and Dennis E. Perez who just passed the licensure examination for custom brokers.

A place for future maritime officers

BMMCI is now building a training center with plans to add a boarding house (barrack type) in Pangpang Sorsogon City for incoming maritime freshmen students who qualify in the scholarship programmed sponsored by MMC – MIS-MOL LTD. They will be closely monitored for three years and will be trained in the Spirit of MOL a training ship of MIS-MOL LTD. for two months. They will then be assigned to different ships of MOL, where they have to apply all the knowledge and skills in handling task that will be assigned to them. When they finish this apprenticeship they will take the licensure examination for officership under the PRC.
