A Message from the President

Welcome to the Philippine Merchant Marine School.

Since its founding in 1950, PMMS has produced thousands of able merchant marine officers and other marine-allied professionals who have carved a niche in the history of our maritime industry.

We keep abreast with rapid technological advancements both in fields of shipping, business and teaching, constantly investing on modernizing our facilities and equipment and improving the programs to give our students the best preparatory education. This quality education and our strong network with business managers and shipping principals assure steady employment for our graduates.

Our organization is run by a professional team of managers and staff with balanced business and service perspective. Our faculty boasts of practitioners in the maritime business and generic college subject experts. We put a premium on continuous learning for the entire organization and acknowledge the individual and the team contributions through equitable rewards and other forms of recognition.

Anchored on the ideas of leadership and excellence and the aspirations of providing qualified and dedicated seafarers of the founding father of Philippine formal education, we sail ahead towards a bright horizon, proud that our alumni are excelling in the posts they hold.


President and Chairman of the Board
