Toyota Motor Philippines School of Technology (TMP Tech), a technical-vocational (tech-voc) school that offers excellent automotive training, is the chosen Host Institution to implement the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the Republic of Korea (ASEAN-ROK) Technical & Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Mobility Programme to train selected participants from the ASEAN Member States.
TMP Tech, a Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Two STARS Awardee for Automotive Servicing NC IV, will provide training on Automotive Servicing for the pilot batch of 25 participants from ASEAN member states. The ASEAN-ROK TVET Mobility Programme’s primary objective is to bridge the gap between demand and supply of priority vocational skills within the ASEAN region, with Automotive being among the five (5) priority vocational skills, which also include Electrical & Electronics, Building Construction, Hospitality & Tourism, and Computer & Information Services. The program spans three months, with a two-month in-school training period and followed by a one-month internship at Toyota dealership partners.
The pilot batch was warmly welcomed on June 26, 2023, through a special ceremony attended by TESDA representatives, Mr. Vidal D. Villanueva III, Deputy Director General for Special Concerns, and Mr. Baron Jose Lagran, Region IV-A Director.
The 25 participants consist of 20 students and 5 faculties from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. They are currently being trained in a Specialized Automotive Servicing course that covers the fundamentals of engine, overhauling of gasoline and diesel engine, repairing of manual and automatic transmission/transaxle, chassis, and the introduction of the hybrid system. This pilot batch training will run until September 16, 2023.
The Programme is a collaboration between the Philippine Department of Education, TESDA, TMP Tech, and the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCCI), which represents a significant milestone in advancing automotive education and skills building. Through this partnership, TMP Tech aims to empower participants with the knowledge and skills required to excel in the automotive industry.
