AMS Asia Trainee tops Graduating Class
On April 07, a hundred graduates were conferred with their diploma in the 2-Year Electromechanics Technology. On this occasion, AMS Asia Managing Director, Mr. Cyrus Mehr, was glad to see their sponsored graduates. One of them, Mr. Thuper Lapitan, spoke on behalf of the graduates having made it to the top of his class.
The partnership of Dualtech and AMS Asia started in 2016 when the company hosted the in-plant training of 6 trainees as its first batch. After 18 months, these trainees successfully completed the program and joined the graduating batch.
In his address, Mr. Cyrus Mehr advised the graduate to embrace the changing technologies and learn new knowledge to further improve their professional career. And also as important as their career, he asked to the graduates to always look back to where they came from. “Let us not forget that you also need to be a role model for the community and become the pride of your parents, and your country”, he said.
Trained at AMS Asia, Mr. Thuper Lapitan came out top of the class receiving the Outstanding In-School Performance and Merit awards. He is the son of Mr. Efren Lapitan who is also an alumnus of Dualtech.
His father was his inspiration in taking the Electromechanics Technology course. He shared, “Nakita ko kung paano nagtrabaho ang aking ama. Hindi siya nahiyang mag simula sa pag kukumpuni ng mga sirang “Appliances” sa mga kapit-bahay. Siya pa mismo ang naghahanap ng marerepair. Pinalad din siyang makapagtrabaho bilang technician sa mga kumpanya at makapag abroad, sa katunayan umuwi lang siya para sa aking graduation mula sa Saudi Aramco.”
“Gusto ko dito sa Dualtech” was his first impression when his father brought him at Dualtech while looking at some trainees doing the actual and hand-ons training. During the 6-month training, he realized that the school does not only provide skills training. It also helps students in its values and spiritual formation. “Malaking tulong ang Dualtech para sa aming mga kabataang may pangarap sa buhay. Karamihan sa amin ay tatanggapin ang sakramento ng kasal at bubuo ng sariling pamilya. Tayong mga lalaki ang pangunahing magtatrabaho upang buhayin at tugunan ang mga pangangailangan ng ating magiging pamilya at napaka gandang naging pundasyon itong Dualtech upang magkaroon tayo ng maayos na pamilya at buhay balang araw.”
After 6 months, he was sent to AMS Asia in the Wafer Level Packaging Department. He was assigned in a critical post which was similar to what the regular employees were doing. During free time, he took the initiative to learn other processes, repair, and maintenance of the machine. In all his experience, it is his father who served as his role model towards pursuing a technical career showing appreciation for work. He says, “Sa aking ama ko natutunan na ang trabaho, ano man ito ay dapat pagbutihan at tapusin ng maayos. Hindi niya ako pinapabayaang hindi payuhan at gabayan upang ang buhay ko ay umayos. Malaki ang kontribusyon niya sa pagiging disipinado ko sa simulat- simula pa lang. Hindi nakakapagtaka sapagka’t graduate nga siya ng Dualtech Center.”
