At 16 February 2019 Mr. Busse, a representative from Germany and Mr. Gatot, a representative from Nord, visited Polimarin to carry out an internal selection for Polimarin students which later be sent to Jakarta to conduct interviews with the Nord manager at PT. Silo Bahari.
This selection was attended by approximately 35 students from the nautical and technical departments to continue to select several students who were considered able to continue the selection in Jakarta.

The selections was held in the KPN class room and students were tested on general knowledge of ships and English proficiency. English is emphasized to the  students because later they will be placed in the foreign company. With good language competence, it is expected that when they have joined the company, they will be easier to communicate with the existing crew, which is certainly also from various countries.
