How to become a Philippine Navy? – Recruitment Requirements Enlisted and Officer 2014

Do you dream of becoming a part of the Philippine Navy? Make your dream come true by joining the Naval Force this 2014. Know the requirements here and apply at the recruitment for enlisted personnel and officers. The PN is just one of the three main branches of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). How is it having a job in the navy? Working and being part of it would surely make you a national hero and you would be so very proud. Let’s not forget great benefits and compensation.

Just like the other branch of AFP, the Philippine Navy (Hukbong Dagat ng Pilipinas) also has its modernization every year by having newly bought ships and other equipments. It also has continuous hiring process to strengthen their force. PN is also composed of two type commands – Philippine Marine Corps and the Philippine Fleet. It is so noble to be part of it just like the Philippine Air Force.

Philippine Navy Recruitment 2014 Requirements

For enlistment, candidate soldier and officer, applicants must meet the following requirements. Qualifications must be met in order to be eligible.

  • Must be a natural-born Filipino Citizen
  • At least 5 feet in height
  • Must be of good moral character with no pending civil or criminal case
  • Single, never married, with no child or children support
  • Must be physically and mentally fit
  • Must pass the AFP Aptitude Battery Test, IQ and Special Written Examinations

18 – 23 years old for enlistment applicants should have graduated at least 72 units in college or have graduated a two-year associate course or vocational course preferably electronics and communication, electrical, plumbing, mechanics, welding, aircraft maintenance aviation, and heavy equipment operators.

21 – 28 years old for officer applicants must be graduate of 4 or 5 year Bachelors degree course preferably Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Accountancy, Computer Science, IT, Marine Engineering, Civil Engineering, Naval Architecture and Maritime Transportation.

For qualified enlisted navy applicants or navy candidate soldiers, they will undergo a training called Basic Seamanship Course (BSC). This course is the same as that what is taken by those seafarers and seaman if you are familiar.

For qualified navy officers, they will undergo Naval Officers Candidate Course (NOCC).

Philippine Navy Salary

Last year, applicants received basic monthly pay of P26,567 for officers who took NOCC while candidate soldiers who took BSC received P15,426. They also receive additional monthly allowance of P4,950 including midyear and year-end cash gifts and bonus. Wow, the Philippine Navy is so amazing! This 2013, I’m sure the allowance and pay will increase.

Those are just introductory benefits of joining the Philippine Navy. I’m sure having officially hired in the Navy will give a lot more such as honor and heroic pride. Of course working in the government and being part of the AFP will give great compensation with bonuses and cool perks. Expect generous retirement benefits too.

          If you have seen the news headline last night, it was about the Filipino who won The Apprentice Asia. He is a great inspiration. It tells us that nothing can put us to failure except ourselves. Cheers! Always believe in yourself. Good luck!
