Dualtech Center

Dualtech Center, a project of Dualtech Training Center Foundation, Inc. (DTCFI), is a not-for-profit technical-vocational school preparing young people for employment in industrial firms. Through the Dual Training System, the school collaborates with several business entities to impart relevant skills and values to high school graduates.

The school welcomes individuals and groups who wish to contribute to poverty alleviation through technical skills training. We are the pioneer institution in applying the dual training system in the Philippines.

A Generous Couple: Mr. & Mrs. Jack Herbster

Jack and Amor“It is not only in business you can grow your money; you can spend it when you give it to the right person. He will grow it because he would start earning, so then he could also help somebody. This is our investment”

This is the living principle of Mr. and Mrs. Herbster who have helped many scholars through financial assistance and parenting. Life is very simple for them. They are blessed with material wealth; and this gift is shared to the poor most especially to the young ones who have still hopes to succeed.

To be part of Dualtech mission was an easy decision, a slumdunk as described by Jack Herbster. He attributed it to the Holy Spirit that led them to Dualtech. It was in 2014 when they attended an Educhild seminar together with the other parents to learn their key role in the family. But since the language used was in Tagalog which is a foreign language for Jack, they diverted their attention into something more meaningful – to sponsor students. Mr. Jack Herbster shared, “When I saw the student who started the training from the basic, for me it is everything. That is a strong program. I dont see the end product but I see the beginning.” Ms. Amor Herbster added, “Dualtech is apostolate. They  want to give the people the CHANCE.  That is the one that got us here. They take the risk that they could able to form the person.”

abarca-cHindi ko inakala na makakarating ako dito sa ganitong posisyon. Pangarap ko lang naman maging factory worker noon. Pero nagbago lahat yan ng mag-aral ako sa Dualtech. Alam mo sa sarili mo na kaya mo. Kailangan mo lang ng knowledge at skills. Ang Dualtech ay hindi tungkol sa short-cuts. Pero kung gusto mong mapabilis ang natatago mong kakayahan, ’wag kang magdalawang isip sa Dualtech. -- Christopher M. Abarca | Psi Technologies, A49-1998

Because It’s There

“Because it’s there”, is the reply of mountain climbers when asked “Why do you climb mountains?”  A mountain not conquered is an opportunity.

tacloban-boys“Because it is there” are the replies of the students from Tacloban, Bohol, and Palawan when asked “Why are you here in Dualtech?”  These students could have taken the passive way after the calamities struck their respective provinces.  There are students whose houses were crushed by a ship that run aground.  These students saw their parents remain strong during a dark moment.  These students, who experienced untimely maturation, have a mountain to climb.

“Because it's there” are the replies of the parents of these students to the question “Why send your son to Dualtech?”  For some of the parents, their sons are really the only hope that they have to a better life.  These parents are exhausted and squeezed out from the ordeal they suffered.  Yet with what they have left, they send their son to study in Dualtech.  These parents, who have climbed so many mountains, has another mountain to climb -the education of their son.

Anu ba ang ibig sabihin ng UNLAD?

cfpcorcueraUNLAD ay  “Unahin Lagi Ang Diyos”. Kapag inuna nyu ang Panginoon tiyak magiging matagumpay kayo. Sa paanong paraan tayo magiging malapit sa Panginoon, paano natin siya mamahalin? Sa ating gawa, i-alay ang inyong gawa. Pag-gising nyu sa umaga, lahat ng iyong iisipin, gagawin at sasabihin i-alay natin kay Lord. Huwag kalimutan paalalahanin din natin ang ating mga kasama sa bahay, pag-gising sa umaga ang unang gagawin, magpasalamat, pangalawa mag-alay ng iyong sasabihin, iisipin, gagawin para sa kanya sapagkat kapag ginawa nyo ito may mangyayari sa inyong paggawa. Pulido ang inyong gawa, hindi po tayo pwedeng mag alay sa Panginoon ng isang gawaing palpa. Sa ojt ninyo sa mga kompanya, pag kayo ay gumawa ng palpak natutuwa ba ang inyong mga namumuno?, hindi, yan ang unang una nating gagawin. Pangalawa mahalin ang trabaho. Paano nyu mamahalin ang trabaho. Sabi ko kanina, pulido ang gawa, walang mali at sa takdang panahon ng pagninilay ng trabaho sa ating namumuno dapat “on time”. Yan ang mga sinasabi sa mga kompanya “Do it right the first time” di pwede po yung maganda nga ang ginawa mo pero paso na sa deadline hindi pwede yun.

I Learned to be a Good Person

tucay-arielAno ba talaga ang pinakamahalagang itinuro sa akin ng DUALTECH? Para sa akin, hindi ang kakayahan na sa tingin ko ay matututunan ko din naman sa ibang paraan at lugar. Hindi rin ang kaalaman na alam kong maraming tao ang napahamak dahil sa sobrang karunungan. Para sa akin, tinuruan kami maging isang mabuti at masunuring anak sa aming mga magulang. Tinuruan maging mabuti, matapat, at mapagmahal na asawa sa babaeng makakasama namin habangbuhay. Tinuruan kaming maging isang mabuti at responsableng ama para sa pagpapalaki ng aming mga anak sa hinaharap. Samakatuwid, tinuruan kaming maging isang “MABUTING TAO”, na siyang maituturo namin sa mga taong nakapaligid sa amin.
