Philippine Center for Advanced Maritime Simulation and Training, Inc.
Company Profile
The Philippine Center for Advanced Maritime Simulation and Training, Inc. (PHILCAMSAT) was established on 26 May 1992.  It is the first maritime training center in the Philippines thrice-certified by Det Norske Veritas for Maritime Training, Maritime Simulator Training Services, and ISO 9001:2008.  In addition, PHILCAMSAT is the only institution in Asia certified by the Belgian Maritime Inspectorate, thus setting a global standard for training in the Philippines.
 
PHILCAMSAT has invested heavily in faculty training and development, as well as, in the most modern of equipment to provide world-class training amid an authentic learning climate.  Headquartered in the central business district of Makati City, the Center offers state-of-the-art facilities and cutting edge technology to mimic the environment on board.  It is the first training center in the Philippines to have acquired a Kongsberg Norcontrol Polaris Full Mission Ship Bridge Simulator, an Engine Room Simulator Plant Propulsion Trainer, and a Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator.  It is also the first training center to utilize touch sensitive multi-flex panels for bridge simulation.  The Center’s specialized equipment include High Voltage Switchgear, Hydraulics and Pneumatics, Electro-Mechanical Lab-Volt with PLC, GMDSS and ECDIS simulators.  Currently, PHILCAMSAT has four (4) independent ship bridge simulators, two of which can be integrated with two Full Mission Engine Simulators (one hardware-equipped and one touch screen) to provide a total simulation training environment.

Reinforcing its commitment to enhance global competitiveness in Filipino seafarers, the Center is proud to introduce its exceptional maritime safety facility located in an ecologically-friendly campus in Maragondon, Cavite:  the Maritime Skills Training Campus, more commonly known as The MAST.  It is the home of STCW Basic Training, Advanced Fire Fighting, Proficiency in Survival Craft and Fast Rescue Boat, and Proficiency in Fast Rescue Boat initial and refresher training, as well as, offshore safety and survival courses. Global maritime professionals benefit from the theoretical and quality hands-on experience that equip them with confidence and proficiency to carry out their responsibilities during emergency situations on board. 
 
PHILCAMSAT is committed to produce highly-competent and professional seafarers who are well-trained and capable of ensuring safety, security, and quality service onboard. Over 130,000 individuals can attest to PHILCAMSAT’s world-class competency training, through which they have been able to pursue meaningful maritime careers.
 
Industry-academic linkages remain a strong supplement to the Center’s training programs.  In 2008, a partnership with the country’s premier engineering academic institution, Malayan Colleges Laguna (MCL), resulted in the creation of the Mapua-PTC College of Maritime Education and Training (CMET).  This key strategic initiative has produced a supply of well-trained, technically-oriented cadet officers equipped with a solid conceptual background in Marine Transportation and Marine Engineering, and advanced hands-on training and instructions to meet industry standards of competence.
