Ex-president Jonathan started a training programme for students of the Nigerian Seafarers Development Programme and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency during his regime.

Students of each set were given the opportunity to further their studies in the University of Perpetual Help System in the Philippines.

The programme was reportedly established to address the requirement of manpower in the maritime sector.
