Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) presented its latest batch of graduates from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority’s (TESDA) four-year National Competency Certificate program. These batch is bound to become one of country’s most competitive auto mechanics, ready to take on the local automotive industry by storm.
The scholarship program is a partnership between IPC, TESDA, and World Vision Philippines charitable organization. Initially a two-year technical training course, IPC required its 18 scholars to complete levels three and four to complete the program as the Japanese brand wants to produce the best in the field.
We started this project in 2008 and it’s very clear to us by now how education plays crucial role in shaping every individual, social, and even economic development success. Isuzu will always be here to provide opportunities for nurturing their talents and skills.
The fresh grads are expected to be competitive in the automotive industry with the highest certification in the country for auto mechanics up their sleeves. As to what will happen to them after graduation, well, it seems that IPC will have new highly skilled mechanics in its roster of employees.
This is a timely addition as the Japanese brand continues to expand its presence in the country with new dealerships in Roxas City, Capiz and in Taytay, Rizal.
Isuzu Roxas City, Capiz will be built on 3,500 square meters worth of land. It will have the capacity to display up to five vehicles in its first year and expand to ten the following year.
Meanwhile, Isuzu Taytay, Rizal is erected on a 3,000 square meter lot that can house up to six vehicles including the new Blue Power Euro-4 compliant mu-X and D-Max. It will also be spacious enough to accommodate ten Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV).
Steel wouldn’t let aluminum take its position as the top player in the automotive industry.
This timing is indeed perfect for a potential partnership.
Quite a sad exhibit but hey, at least now we know.
