The objective of the agreement is essentially (a) to recognize that the cadet is a student of maritime education and to declare that the cadet is not part of the vessel`s additional work; (b) to allow the cadet to be trained on board the vessel, in accordance with the rules of the Higher Education Commission (CHED) and (c), to ensure the safety and well-being of the cadet during the training until the cadet returns. When did a CU-CME cadet consider the BSMT/BSMarE graduate? Not necessarily. A cadet may be transferred from one ship to another within one (1) year, provided that the vessel you enter is no less than 500 gross tons for deck cadets and no less than 750 kW of propulsion power for the engine cadets. We believe that it is this experience that allows cadets to make an educated choice about the sector in which they want to start or pursue their careers if they are qualified. How does a CU-CME cadet qualify for the Shipping/Manning Companies Cadet Program? What are the benefits of the CU-CME cadet through his BSMT/BSMarE graduation? What are the procedures when a cadet decides not to continue his or her online training (OBT) at the end of the training course (CCI)? What happens when a cadet conducts on-board training (OBT) on a vessel other than a merchant vessel under the law or if the gross gauge of the KW engine is less than that prescribed? The Standard Cadet Training Agreement on Ships Engaged in International Voyage came into effect on August 25, 2013 to ensure compliance with MLC 2006 requirements to protect the rights of naval cadets and provide them with social protection while they undergo mandatory on-board training. Cadets must follow the learning on board a real ship to expose students to the real applications of the concepts and techniques they learned in class. How long does a cadet have to undergo online training (OBT)? It is almost a reflection of the Standard Seafarers` Employment Contract (SEC), which contains provisions relating to conditions of employment, housing, recreational facilities, catering and catering, social protection and social protection. It also required that the sponsorship company provide the cadet with health protection and medical care in the event of illness, injury or danger related to training or illness, injury or danger during the term of the contract, as well as a financial guarantee to cover compensation for permanent disability or the resulting death. Newspapers have reported that a 19-year-old cadet from India was killed on 29 March 2017 aboard a merchant ship in Brussels, Belgium. Earlier, the MS Starlite Atlantic sank on the morning of December 26, 2016 in front of Tingloy in Batangas, due to the onslaught of Typhoon Nina.
