Abstract
A maritime apprenticeship is an arrangement of preparing intended to get ready cadets for skilled occupations, and comprising of a mix of at work preparing with skilled excursion laborers and paid related classroom direction. At the point when a student has finished the predefined number of hours of apprenticeship preparing, he turns into a confirmed talented sailor. This study meant to distinguish the variables identified with the oceanic pre-apprenticeship stage as the reason for proposing a program. The study employed the descriptive method using surveys and interviews with key informants. A three-set researcher made questionnaire was constructed based on the apprenticeship program guidelines, suggestions, and opinions provided by the institutions’ superintendents and STOs and the apprenticeship crewing managers of selected shipping companies. The gathered data were treated using simple percentage, weighted mean, rank, Spearman Rank Order Coefficient, and ANOVA. The study revealed that key informants have the same perceptions of the skills and competencies needed to qualify applicants for an apprenticeship. It was concluded that the apprentice mates, shipboard training officers, and crewing managers considered certain factors related to their qualifying for apprenticeship and that they encountered problems along the way. The researchers strongly recommend the implementation of the learning program to improve procedures for applications.
