Magsaysay Holds Security Training Program for Carnival Corporation Crew


Magsaysay Training Center (MTC) held the graduation ceremony for the ninth batch of trainees under the Carnival Maritime Security Training Program last August 17 at the Magsaysay Institute of Shipping in Dasmarinas, Cavite. The batch had a total of 24 ship security personnel from Carnival Cruise Line, Carnival UK, AIDA Cruises, Costa Cruises, and Princess Cruises. The trainees came from China, India, Nepal, and the Philippines. 

The Security Officer Training Program Tier I was conducted by Carnival Corporation’s Edwin Medina, Maritime Security Manager, and Instructors, George Ferrer and Carlos Garcia Jr. The training program is in line with the Memorandum of Agreement between Magsaysay and Carnival Corporation signed last November 2014. The program addresses the training requirements of newly hired and existing security personnel serving onboard cruise ships owned and operated by the Carnival Corporation. The 2-week program covered theories and practical exercises on the applicable provisions of the mandatory requirements of ISPS Code, SOLAS 74, as amended, and of the STCW Convention, 2010 Manila Amendments, also taking into account the recommendations prescribed in the IMO Model Course 3.26, Security Training for Seafarers with Designated Security Duties (2012 edition) and IMO Model Course 3.27, Security Awareness Training for All Seafarers (2012 edition). 

The graduation ceremony was graced by Ernesto Yutadco, Vice President and Marine Group Head of Magsaysay Maritime Corporation.
