For individuals looking to expand their expertise in automotive servicing, the TESDA-Petron Car Care Center (CCC) has officially opened its doors at the TESDA Compound in Taguig.
Petron has partnered with TESDA to create livelihood opportunities for Filipinos and address our country’s need for more skilled personnel. The new facility was completed in just a span of three months and comes complete with a full car repair set-up patterned after the Petron Car Care Center. In addition, the partnership between Petron and TESDA will provide free technical-vocational training in automotive servicing to qualified individuals.
TESDA developed the training modules suited for Petron's specific needs to prepare the trainees for possible employment opportunities. The target is to accept trainees as early as August 2022 and to produce 25 graduates for the year. But for the future, the training center is expected to produce around 100 graduates per year.
“We want this to be a venue where our countrymen will come out more capable, more experienced, and more empowered to lead better lives. We want them to have not only the proper skills but also the confidence to support their families and chase after bigger dreams. With this project, we hope to impart not only the Petron brand of excellence but also our commitment to fueling hope and success” said Petron General Manager Lubin B. Nepomuceno.
With about 50 branches nationwide, the Petron Car Care Center and its scaled-down version, Car Care Center Express offer affordable yet casa-quality preventive maintenance services by well-trained mechanics.
Thanks to the new training facility, members of Petron’s fenceline communities can become TESDA-certified mechanics and later work at Petron CCCs or Lube Bays.
