This study determined the essentiality and practicability of the Engine Room Simulator Training Course onboard ship among special program cadets of JBLFMU-Molo, Iloilo City, Philippines. This employed the qualitative research method where data are gathered through an interview and the subjects were the special program cadets who had taken the ERSTC and had undergone apprenticeship onboard an international vessel. The participants were the ten (10) engine cadets of the special program specifically the Norwegian Ship-owners Association (NSA) Cadets of JBLFMU-Molo, Iloilo City, Philippines taking up marine engineering, which had taken the Engine Room Simulator Training Course (ERSTC) and had undergone apprenticeship onboard international vessel. As whole, the ERS Training Course is essential onboard ship in a manner, that most of the vessels are computer based or UMS. It gives basic idea and knowledge on the operations and functions of the machineries and equipment in a specific system onboard, gives experiences on how to trouble shoot and rectify and make the mastery of operating procedure easy like starting and stopping of the main engine, synchronizing of generators. Furthermore, ERS Training Course is very practicable on the UMS vessels and essential on the manned machinery space when taken as whole. As such, the machineries and equipment, operation and functions are the same onboard even though the positions are less complicated on the simulator that it is fixed and organized. Lastly, it is applicable onboard regardless on the types of vessel, kind of cargo carried, and mode of operations. © 2014 Australian Maritime College, an institute of the University of Tasmania.

This study aims to determine the 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional simulator programs and their influence on the learning process of BS Maritime Transportation and BS Marine Engineering students at Maritime University, Philippines. The participants in this study were the 160 BSMT and BSMar-E students of the Maritime University (JBLFMU-Molo) for school year 2010-2011. Participants in the study were enrolled at the Deck Simulator Program and Engine Room Simulator (ERS), which introduced the 2-D and 3-D simulator programs as part of the different tasks for skills development of maritime students (BSMT and BSMar-E) at Maritime University in the Philippines. The researchers instructed the respondents to write down all their comments, suggestions, observations, and remarks on the perceived influence of using the 3D and 2D simulator programs. After the gathering of the qualitative information, the researchers classified and categorized the write-ups of the respondents into different "categories." The analysis of comparison in relation to learning process brought about by the two (2) simulator programs was processed by the researchers. The "categories" were used towards establishing the concepts/views whether these simulation programs influence the learning process of nautical (BSMT) and marine engineering (BSMar-E) students at Maritime University (JBLFMU-Molo) in the Philippines. The results revealed that the 2-D and 3-D simulator programs are good learning aids which are helpful to maritime students. Sustaining the maritime students' "competent skill" in performing the different tasks in simulator is needed and should be enhanced. © 2014 Australian Maritime College, an institute of the University of Tasmania.

The study aimed to determine if the Ilonggo seafarers have an edge over other nationalities. Furthermore, the study determined the Ilonggo seafarers' communication and work ethic, Ilonggo seafarers' attitude towards work, Ilonggo seafarers' relationship with other seafarers. The descriptive qualitative method of research was employed in this investigation. According to Good and Scates (2000), descriptive research involves collecting of data in order to test hypothesis or answer questions concerning the edge of Filipino seafarers against other nationalities. Descriptive research according to Evans (2009) is concerned with the description of the existing distribution of variables, as opposed to theory building. Or, in plain language, descriptive studies focus on answering the basic W questions: Who, what, when, where. The fifth W, "why" falls outside of the scope of descriptive research, that by definition must not concern itself with the effect that one variable has on another. Qualitative data is extremely varied in nature. It includes virtually any information that can be captured that is not numerical in nature. In this investigation, in-depth interviews were utilized. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group.

This study aims to determine the hiring practices; methods of recruitment, process and criteria for selection that are being adopted by different ship-manning agencies in Iloilo City for the employment of seafarers. The respondents were chosen by purposive type of sampling. Generally, the shipping companies and manning agencies in the Philippines regardless of category adopt almost the same hiring practices. This may be due to the nature of business and profession. This finding implies that the employment process involved the hiring of the best-qualified people for the right job. The finding that shipping companies and manning agencies get their recruits from the same sources reflects the common practice of the agencies to wait for the applicants to come to their offices to apply. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group.

This study was an initial evaluation of the Marine Transportation Program of John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University (JBLFMU)) as viewed by the graduates. It aimed at determining the interplay of adequacy of curricular experiences in the degree preparation at JBLFMU with the level of competency on the tasks prescribed by Standard for Training & Watchkeeping(STCW'95) which consists of obligatory and recommendatory requirements which a member country of International Maritime Organization (IMO) must implement in her respective jurisdiction and for her seafarers to be competent and qualified to undertake the different levels of functions on board a sea going vessel in international and local routes ; job satisfaction, work-related benefits and problems met aboard the ship. The participants of the study were the 300 graduates who were grouped according to the year they graduated (BSMT).The data needed for the research were ob-tained through the use of the researcher- made questionnaires: The Level of Adequacy of Curricular Experi-ences in the degree preparation at JBLFMU Questionnaires, Level of Competency in the Training Tasks Prescribed by STCW '95, Job Satisfaction Aboard Ship, Work-related Benefits Survey Form and Problems Encountered Aboard Ship, all of which were constructed, validated, pilot tested for the present investigation. The data was analyzed quantitatively. All statistics were computed-processed through the Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS) Software. The study found out that the graduates considered their curricular experiences particularly in general education subjects, professional subjects and basic safety training in the degree preparation at JBLFMU as very adequate ;their level of competency of tasks prescribed by STCW'95 as high and a high level of satisfaction in their jobs. The graduates considered financial stability and sense of security for the family as their priorities in the work-related benefits and they rarely encountered personal, so-cial, professional and environmental problems. Significant differences were noted among the different batches of graduates in terms of their level of competency, job satisfaction and problems encountered aboard the vessel. The Adequacy of Curricular Experiences in the degree preparation at JBLFMU, Level of Competency of tasks prescribed by STCW, job satisfaction, work-related benefits, & problems encountered aboard ship are significantly and positively correlated. The Level of Adequacy of Curricular Experiences is a significant factor that affects Level of Competency, Job Satisfaction, work-related benefits and problems encountered aboard ship. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group.
