SRN and MISMO: What You Need To Know
All maritime training centers in the Philippines are now required to ask all aspiring and current Filipino seafarers who wish to take STCW courses to provide an SRN prior to training.
What is SRN?
SRN or Seafarers Registration Number is a unique identification number assigned by MARINA.
Why do you need an SRN?
MARINA will ask you to provide an SRN before they can process any transaction/ request, be it an appointment for COP Issuance or Revalidation, or application for Theoretical and Practical Assessments, SIRB, etc. They need your SRN to access your records.
Training centers are required to upload your training records so you can also monitor the validity of your STCW courses such as Basic Training, STCW Refresher Courses, Fast Rescue Boat Training, etc.
How can I get an SRN?
You simply have to create a MISMO account. You will be provided an SRN as soon as you register. If you already have an SCS account, you can use your user name at password to log in. If you don’t have an SCS but you have an SIRB, you can sign up via SIRB.
MISMO is MARINA’s online evaluation and appointment system which was launched in December 2018.
