This study was undertaken to explore the implementation of outcomes-based education (OBE) in Seamanship 2 instruction and to assess the student’s level of acquired knowledge in the aforementioned course through an examination. Using a Descriptive Research Design through a quantitative approach, the study evaluated the level of the implementation of outcome base education of the Seamanship 2 course based on the collective perspectives of 130 second-year student-respondents taking up Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation (BSMT) students from the Asian Institute of Maritime Studies who recently completed the Seamanship 2 course during the first trimester of AY 2022-2023, as well as their respective technical instructors. The statistical tools used in this study were frequencies, percentages, Pearson-r product correlation, and T-test of independent means. The study found that both groups of respondents agreed that the course syllabus utilized in the said subject is compliant with the implementation of the key principles and guidelines of the OBE approach, particularly in the areas of course outcomes, learning objectives, teaching and learning, instructional materials, and assessment. The researcher recommends that the proposed Detailed Teaching Syllabus for Seamanship 2 be adopted as this embodies the necessary elements of an OBE-driven course delivery.
