The Growing League of Highly-skilled Toyota Technicians



Toyota Motor Philippines School of Technology (TMP Tech) held its 4th Commencement Exercises for the largest batch to date of its 2-year Toyota General Job (GJ) Automotive Servicing Course. Two hundred (200) newly-capped graduates will soon join Toyota’s growing league of highly-skilled Filipino automotive professionals in Toyota dealerships nationwide and overseas.

Unleashing Prime Potentials

Envisioned as a regional human resource hub for both the local and global Toyota Network, TMP Tech equips Filipino youth with quality skills grounded on Toyota’s well-known disciplines and technologies. Since its establishment in 2013, TMP Tech has become one of today’s top choices for automotive technical education in the country. Its campus inside the Toyota Ecozone in Santa Rosa City, Laguna has so far produced over 500 competitive graduates from its various programs.

Setting TMP Tech apart from other schools is its advance and fast-track curriculum, which optimally combines Technical Education and Skills Development Authority’s (TESDA) required competencies for National Certification Levels I to IV in Automotive Servicing with Toyota’s advanced training platform—Technical Education for Automotive Mastery for the 21st Century or TEAM 21.

Each General Job student undergoes classroom lectures and practical training in fully-simulative state-of-the-art workshop and facilities. Acquired competencies in the school are then reinforced in an actual dealer setting through an extensive on-the-job exposure program. As a result, the student gains both technical and professional understanding, making him well-equipped for a successful career in after-sales service.

The Toyota Synergy

As the No. 1 automotive company in the country, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is continuously expanding its dealer network, requiring highly-skilled professionals to serve customers. The Toyota Dealers Association (TDA), composed of 56 dealers nationwide, actively collaborates with TMP Tech in providing a hands-on learning environment to develop technicians who will deliver excellent Toyota service.

TDA president Jose Lim III congratulated all the graduates, “The knowledge and skills that you have acquired are highly in demand. You have, this early, earned your rightful place in our working class, and are ready to contribute to the welfare of our country.”

Momentum of Excellence

TMP Tech students’ 2-year journey is holistically packed with Toyota principles they should imbibe as professionals. These core values, such as quality, continuous improvement, customer mindset and respect for people, will play an important part in their success as they enter the workforce.

As they take the next phase of their career, TESDA deputy director general and commencement speaker Alvin Feliciano, representing TESDA director general Guiling Mamondiong, inspired the graduates saying, “Even though the future is uncertain, don’t be anxious. There’s always a quick solution to the challenge that you may face.” This mindset was displayed by Kathleen Claire Abad, who topped her batch and is awarded as the Most Outstanding Student. In her address, Abad mentioned, “I had absolutely zero knowledge about automotive servicing [back] then. The only thing I knew about cars was that these were contraptions that had wheels, and made mobility easier and more comfortable for us. That’s why I worked ten times harder [and] strived to give more than my 100% in everything that I did.” Many have also showed exemplary performance, embodied by the other five technical excellence awardees and four special awardees.

TMP President and TMP Tech Science and Technology Council executive vice chairman Satoru Suzuki left the graduates with his message, “As you will be soon taking on your new role as globally-competitive Filipino technicians ready to serve Toyota’s brand of excellence, never lose sight of the Toyota Way by continuously improving yourselves and showing respect for others. Your trainers, instructors and I are confident that by doing so, you can reach your full potential and be the best version of yourselves.”
