How is the dealer selected for student’s OJT deployment?

OJT deployment is based on Toyota dealers’ OJT slots availability. As much as possible, proximity of student’s permanent residence to Toyota dealership is taken into consideration where to deploy the student, but this is not automatic and there is no assurance.

If there are no available slots at Toyota dealership near a student’s permanent residence, the student shall be deployed in Toyota dealerships where there are available OJT slots to complete his mandatory OJT deployment.

Do you allow OJT at overseas Toyota dealerships?

Currently, TMP Tech does not have institutional partners overseas for OJT; hence does not allow nor send students for OJT overseas.

In what countries are your graduates eligible for employment?

Each country has its own qualifications set required for automotive technicians.

TMP Tech’s training programs are aligned and complied with TESDA’s required competencies and Toyota’s advanced global training platform—Technical Education for Automotive Mastery for the 21st Century or TEAM 21. Successfully completing these programs allow a TMP Tech graduate to be eligible for employment in any Toyota service dealerships worldwide.

Do you facilitate the employment of your students after graduation?

TMP Tech has close linkage with the local Toyota dealer network through an existing Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Toyota Dealer Association (TDA). Under this partnership, TMP Tech works together with TDA for purposes of providing continuous supply of quality automotive technicians to the dealer network nationwide, aside from support to the school’s Scholarship and OJT programs.

Hence, TMP Tech graduates are given priority for employment in the local Toyota dealer network. However, TMP Tech is not part of the dealers’ internal hiring process, nor does it hire graduates on behalf of a Toyota-affiliate or automotive company in the Philippines and abroad.

Do you send graduates abroad for employment?

TMP Tech’s graduates are also preferred for employment in the Toyota dealers overseas.

From 2013 to 2018, TMP Tech has partnership with Abdul Latif Jameel Import & Distribution (ALJ), Toyota’s leading distributor in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Under the partnership with ALJ, TMP Tech trained and deployed about a hundred Filipino Diagnosis Technicians to KSA and employed with ALJ.

In 2018, we have started our partnership with Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros. Co., Ltd. (AAB) of Qatar to train Filipino automotive technician to be employed to AAB.
