The IMMAJ (International Mariners Management Association of Japan) and the PJMCC (Philippine Japan Manning Consultative Council, Inc.) Foundation, Inc. spearheaded the installation of three training equipment to three maritime agencies.

This move aims to further boost the competency of Filipino seafarers when they work onboard.

A Crude Oil Tanker Simulator was installed in Magsaysay Training Center, while an LNG Cargo Handling Simulator was installed in K-Line Maritime Training Corporation. A Diesel Plant Simulator, meanwhile, was installed in NYK-Fil Maritime E-Training, Inc.

The three agencies were chosen because they have the capability to administer, operate, and maintain simulator-based courses, and have a ready pool of qualified instructors.

With the newly installed equipment, the training agencies are now offering free simulator courses to all Filipino JSU-AMOSUP (Japan Seaman's Union-Associated Marine Officers' and Seamen's Union of the Philippines) members.

This project is funded through a Memorandum of Agreement between the Foundation and the JSU-AMOSUP Training Levy Fund (JATF).  Under the agreement, 40% of the JATF shall be allocated to the purchase, operation, and maintenance of the three training equipment.

The JATF comes from the contributions of shipowners ($15 per seafarer) for the upgrading of seafarers' skills and knowledge.
