Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will you be open? When will you open?

A: Under the rules by the IATF, physical classes in Metro Manila are strictly prohibited during Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine. However, for urgent concerns, the Training Registrar’s Office will be open on Monday AND Wednesday only, 8:00am to 5:00pm. Kindly contact us through Facebook first for your concerns.

Q: My class started before ECQ but was suspended, when will my training resume?

A: We will reschedule it once government restrictions are lifted. We are waiting for advisory from both IATF and Marina as to when we can resume training classes. As of posting of this message, physical classes are still absolutely prohibited.

Q: My training was finished before the ECQ. How can I get my certificate?

A: If you have already finished the course, kindly send us your name, cellphone number, and a copy of your class admission slip via our Facebook page. Our Training Registrar will contact you and verify your name and check if you have completed all the requirements for the course. You will then have an option of either physically going to our Intramuros Office to claim the certificate or we can have it sent to you via Grab or other transportation services (delivery fees will apply).

Q: Can I enroll?

A: Enrollment is different from attending classes. Once the ECQ in Metro Manila is changed to GCQ, you may come to our Intramuros office to enroll. However, we will have to wait for the lifting of government restrictions before you can attend your classes.

Q: Does PNTC offer online classes?

A: Not yet but we are developing a system where we can conduct the classes online. Furthermore, MARINA has not authorized any training center to conduct STCW courses online.

Q: I need a certificate of attendance for my training classes, how can I get them?

A: Kindly send your name, cellphone number, and email through our Facebook page. We will send the certificate of attendance through email.
