Legazpi City, Albay –
The Mariners Polytechnic Colleges Foundation (MPCF) this city has embarked on the production and airing on Veritas Radio and TV the once-a-week program ‘Buhay Marinero’.  The maiden broadcast and telecast were made on June 5, 2014 from 11 o’clock in the morning to twelve high noon.

This is the institution’s way of reaching out to parents and students, the partners in the shipping industry and the general public to let them know on the developments happening inside the campus and in the international maritime world.

The radio-tv program can be monitored LIVE anywhere in the world using the live streaming technology in the internet via www.veritaslegazpi.com/radyo.

One of the highlights of the program is the elaboration on the academic studies offered by the Mariners school particularly the maritime (sea-based) and hospitality and tourism (land-based) courses aimed to guide students who have not made their minds yet on what course to pursue which could offer them good life once they start work after college. Testimonies of graduates will be featured in the show.

It will also highlight the state-of-the-art maritime laboratories, equipment and culinary arts paraphernalia used by students plus the able instructors which the school has, with most of them being active and retired veteran seamen with years of work experience in the international maritime arena as ship officers.  They compose the school’s teaching staff.

The airlane will also be used in the conduct of Mariners System’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) such as the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC), the Bicol Autonomy Movement (BAM), Women in Maritime (WIMA), Kalayag Foundation, etc.

With the grant given to Mariners Schools by the Amsterdam-based Elsevier Foundation to establish a modern electronic Library for Safe Seafaring (L4SS), this medium will also be utilized for the advocacies of this project all designed to benefit the maritime students, the members of the faculty and other stakeholders and interested parties.

“With MPCF being I.S.O. Certified and with the school system, equipment  and instructors conforming to international maritime standards, whatever good news and information we have, we will share to the community via this radio-television program”, declared MPCF President Dante La. Jimenez during the inaugural presentation of ‘Buhay Marinero’. 

It can be recalled that a similar program has been launched two weeks earlier in Naga City, Goa, Partido in Camarines Sur and in Daet, Camarines Norte.  ###
