Sail Milestone Achievement Programme (SailMAP)

To encourage our local seafarers to sail to the highest level of competency (i.e. Certificate of Competency (COC) class 1), MPA, e2i, Singapore Shipping Association (SSA), Singapore Maritime Officers’ Union (SMOU), and Singapore Organisation of Seamen (SOS) launched the Sail Milestone Achievement Programme (SailMAP) to provide each local seafarer with up to S$50,000 when they attain key milestones in their seafaring career.
