How to Join the Philippine Coast Guard? Qualifications, Requirements, and Application procedures

Since 2012, the Philippine Coast Guard or PCG revealed its campaign for massive recruitment as it lacks active personnel to serve the 7,107 islands of the country.

Captain Anelito Gabisan, Public Information Officer of the PCG-District Central Visayas, said they are targeting to hire more than 1,000 personnel every year. He also said they plan to double their recruitment in the next five years so they would reach an average of 25,000 personnel.

“Kulang na man talaga lahat pati sa PNP (Philippine National Police) kahit sa AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) and we need more personnel,” Gabisan told The FREEMAN in a phone interview back in 2012.

The PCG currently has almost 5,000 personnel.
