ABS-CBN Integrated Public Service Office produces AVP about Dualtech
“Bawat isa sa atin, may mga bitbit na pangarap sa buhay. Dala dala natin ang mga pangarap na ito, saan man tayo dalhin ng pagkakataon” is the introductory message of the AVP that the Integrated Public Service (IPS) Office of ABS-CBN produced to promote the technical vocational education using the dual training system model that Dualtech Training Center Foundation pioneered. In this project video, the ABS-CBN team featured industry partners, alumni, scholar-trainees, and school staff.
One of the new partners, Enchanted Kingdom, realized the need on investing in a training program that will sustain the maintenance requirement of the rides and facilities and at the same time fulfill its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). In an interview, Mr. Mario O. Mamon, President, shared “At Enchanted Kingdom, we do not only give magical experience; but we also provide opportunities through technical training that will make the students employable and marketable at their respective fields. Dualtech Center offers training in Electromechanics that supplement our needs to maintain our facilities and rides for the satisfaction of our customers.” In 2017, the company accepted five scholars from Batangas, Cebu, Bohol, and Leyte who are being trained in the mechanical and electrical sections.
To share the training experience, two scholars were selected to tell their stories from the time they learned about Dualtech and the participation of Enchanted Kingdom in the dual training program. Mr. Mark Laurence Ibo, a scholar from Batangas, worked for many companies but never got the chance to land on a regular post. During his stint as a contractual employee in a partner company of Dualtech, he was advised by Dualtech trainees and graduates to go to Dualtech for training which helped them to get better opportunities at work. Another scholar from Leyte, Mr. Gregg Cretecio, shared “Nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon na malaman ang Dualtech ng pumunta sila sa aming lugar upang mag-orient ng mga mag-aaral. Marami kaming nakinig ngunit ako lamang ang naglakas ng loob na pumunta sa Laguna dahil naniniwala ako ng ito na ang pag-asa ko na i-angat ko ang aking sarili upang makatulong sa aking pamilya.” Their stories became part of the material.
One of the first partners of Dualtech in Canlubang, Calamba City was also included in the AVP. Since 1993, Honda Cars Philippines opened its factory as training venue for Dualtech scholars. Among the first batch of trainees, Mr. Nelmar Caya, remained in the company as trusted maintenance associate for 25 years now. Atty. Louie Soriano, Head for Administration, represented the company and promoted Dualtech to more industries by sponsoring the in-plant training of scholars many of whom serve his company with increased productivity and efficiency.
At Dualtech Center, Mr. Jerry Webb Muhi, Executive Director, and Mr. Joel Del Rosario, School Director explained the mission and vision of the school. Representing the alumni, Mr. Jun Simbulan, owner of Yen Industrial, and Mr. Royce Bagro, Learning Facilitator (from Tacloban Leyte) joined the roster of success stories. From among students, two existing scholars from Bohol and Agusan Del Sur were interviewed about their basic training in Electromechanics Technology.
