ABSTRACT: Higher education is challenged to be responsive to the current demands of quality education through the translation of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that conform to internationally accepted standards. SCTW ?95 mandates that maritime academies should ensure the development of competent manpower for maritime industry. John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime College has articulated adherence and compliance with ISO series of standards for Maritime Academies in the Philippines. This study evaluated the extent of deployment of QSS in eight key areas and its implication to the International Shipping Industry. Findings revealed that JBLFMC has a very high extent of deployment in all areas of QSS that indicates an extensive implementation of its processes, procedures and services. A remarkable implication signifies the global competitiveness of the graduates and an assurance of a world-class workforce trained in the academe with total quality system, committed to meet the challenges of the maritime industry.
