The Magsaysay Institute of Shipping (MIS) / MOL Training Center Philippines was estabilshed in 1993 by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and Magsaysay Maritime Corporation as part of their commitment to investing in training that ensures excellence among Filipino seafarers. MIS, located at Dasmariñas, Cavite, is one of the largest state-of-the -art maritime training centers in the country, providing pre-shipboard and upgrading training courses.

The Institute offers the Officer Candidate Course , which molds MOL Scholars and MIS cadets into future captains and chief engineers; and the upgrading program, which serves as a venue for seafarers to continue enhancing their knowledge and skills. Over 2,400 cadets have passed through the OCC since 1993, while the Upgrading Program has benefited more than 19,000 seafarers. Conferences and seminars are also organized as a way of keeping MAGMOL seafarers up-to-date with the current issues relevant to the seafaring industry.

True to its commitment, last July, 2007, MOL acquired its first dedicated training ship, T/S SPIRIT OF MOL, aimed to recruit and develop excellent seafarers under an intensive education curriculum on a cross-cultural mixed set-up. The Ultimate goal is to cultivate skilled MOL seafarers by offering the same training that the Japanese students receive, promote safe operations, protection of marine environment and enhance cross-cultural communications.

As a leading crew manning agency in the country, MAGMOL plays a significant role in boosting the Philippine economy with the training and employment opportunities it provides to Filipinos.


Playing a big role in the success of MAGMOL is the dynamic team of men and women who provide quality service to seafarers and their families. MAGMOL organizes various activities such as participation in Human Resource Management Courses, teambuilding, and other developmental trainings aiming to achieve its employees’ fullest potentials.
