In a statement, MPCF-Canaman College Registrar Marita Relloso emphasized the significance of having board passers as it inspires the Mariners Community especially the students who are taking-up maritime courses.

“The result of board examinations is very important since it highlights the quality of education that the school offer to students. Their performance proves not just their capabilities but also the competence of the school and their mentors”, said Ms. Relloso.
 “Successful graduates and board passers inspire the students to finish their studies and to prepare themselves for professional maritime careers that would enable them to live better lives. I always believe that a right attitude especially their willingness to learn is more important than plain intelligence”, College Registrar Relloso further declared.  
In the international maritime community, it is a fact that more than 400,000 Filipinos work as seafarers. They are admired for being persistent and iron-willed. The presence of Filipino maritime workers overseas contributes not only to the economic well-being of their respective families but to the advancement of the Philippine Economy. (CAS)
