PMMA campus to rise in Cagayan de Oro
According to Rodriguez, he is currently in talks with PMMA president Superintendent Commodore Joel Abutal for the necessary preparations in establishing the said academy.
“PMMA is now drafting the implementing rules and regulations of the law. We will also be determining an administrator who is qualified to head the campus,” he added.
The aim is to produce highly skilled and qualified individuals that will be guaranteed employment once they graduate. It will also provide a chance for young people to take up maritime courses free of tuition and fees.
Presently, PMMA has 48 partner shipping companies that will provide immediate employment opportunities for its graduates.
The CdeO lawmaker said he will push for additional funds for PMMA-CdeO campus during the 2023 budget deliberations starting this September. (PR)
