The Cambodia Maritime Institute (CMI) is looking to launch the first programme offering associate's and bachelor's degrees in seamanship this year, officials said Wednesday. Hei Bavy, director general of the Phnom Penh Autonomous Port (PPAP), said the institute will accept 40 students for the bachelor's degree track and 20 for the associate's degree track. Twelve slots will be reserved for PPAP officials, and the remainder  will be open to students. "We will first train people to meet the actual demands of the [PPAP] because the number of ship arrivals to the port is increasing," Hei Bavy said. He added that the two programmes could be delayed until the following academic year if technical and financial support from donors cannot be secured on time. Officials have yet to decide whether participants will need to pay an admission fee, Hei Bavy said.
