You asked for Number of OFW deployed as cadets.

Response to your request

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance this Office does not have the information you have requested. A cadet is “a student of a maritime education institution who is required to undergo training on-board registered international ships or domestic ships to fulfill a maritime academic course” and is not covered by our monitoring system.

However, you may wish to contact MARINA , or resubmit your request addressed to the correct agency on the eFOI portal.

For further assistance you may review the FAQ section of the eFOI site:
