More than a decade of quality training, Far East Maritime Foundation, Inc. (FEMFI) has continuously serving the Filipino seafarers to improve their knowledge and skills.
Established in 1992, FEMFI is the first to offer the training program in Ship Restricted Operator Course (SSROC) and the INMARSAT/ GMDSS courses. By the year 1995, it was the first training centre to expand to the South by establishing its branch in Cebu and 3 years after, the second branch was opened in Pangasinan. In 1999, there was a major expansion in training courses for Navigation and Tanker Operation at FEMFI-Manila. And a year after, the Basic and Advance Safety Courses and other training courses were offered which cater to the needs of the growing number of seafarers.
In line with FEMFI's pursuit for excellence in maritime training and education, it acquired its ISO 9002 certification from BVQI in February 1999 and was re-certified to ISO 9001:2000 standards in December 2003.
In July 2006, FEMFI inaugurated a well-equipped Training Complex in Brgy. Labac, Naic, Cavite. This marks FEMFI's commitment in providing present and future seafarers a venue for a more realistic scenario in honing their skills in safety and survival at sea.
With the advent of computer based training facilities & equipment, FEMFI ventured into acquiring nothing but the best in Marine Simulation technologies. In 2006 a Full Mission Bridge using TRANSAS NT Pro 4000 and an Engine Room Simulator using TRANSAS ERS 400 was installed. These state-of-the-art simulators are directed toward the improvement of ship handling operations through the use of various ship types navigating under simulated weather and sea conditions in different seaways of the world.
Today, FEMFI offers more than seventy (70) training courses and looks forward to open more courses as the need arises.
Its vision has strongly maintained to be recognized for its excellence in maritime training and education. It will always be ready to respond to the need of the seafarers and prepare them towards global competition.
