Organized in late January 1983, The Maritime Training Center of the Philippines (TMTCP) was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on 18 February 1983, Reg. No. 110300.

Training expertise devolves on instructors who are some of the most experienced seafarers in the country, each having served for many years on board multi-national-flag merchant ships and/or naval vessels. Honed in the proven methods of teaching that they have acquired in the instructor training course taken in the Philippines and in major maritime countries, TMTCP instructors impart their attitude, knowledge and skills to their students destined for the maritime profession. They are wont to say, " . . . we train those who sail to live . . . so that others may live to sail."
