There was an overcast. Tropical depression Ineng just exited the country. What would have been a hot and humid day turned out to be a perfect day for a round of golf. Last August 30, the Dualtech Partners Cup was played at the Canlubang Golf and Country Club, South Course.
The South Course is known for its gentle course. It has wider fairways and even holes to play with. Additionally, it has magnificent views from natural sights like Laguna de Bay Tagaytay ridge, and the peaks of Mt. Makiling. This is a course where you need to stop frequently, look around you and appreciate the beauty of your surroundings.
When Sonion Philippines started its operation in 2012, they approached different educational institutions in search of the most qualified and talented personnel that would handle the technical demands of their production line. Finally, in 2016, Sonion Philippines came in contact with Dualtech Training Center because of the Electromechanics program it is offering, which was exactly what they needed. As of this year, 65% of the total population of Sonion trainees are from Dualtech Center, and they absorbed 90% of these trainees to be part of their technical department.
Dualtech and its guests are welcomed in one of the world’s leading manufacturers of automotive power relay, Electromechanical Devices (EMD) Technologies. Dualtech and EMD Technologies are in partnership since 2014 in delivering technical experiences among the trainees that would make them adept in the needs of the changing manufacturing sector.
Some trainees and alumni, who are now part of the workforce of EMD Technologies shared their inspiring stories, as to how Dualtech Center and its partner company changed the events of their lives.
One of the challenges technical education is facing nowadays is the common misconception of difficulty in career progression compared to degree holders.

Those who openly rendered their time for an interview were TUV Rheinland, Allegro Beverages, HKR Equipment and Gentrade International.
