Toyota Motor Philippines School of Technology (TMP Tech) holds its first commencement exercises with 110 students graduating from the 2-year General Job Automotive Servicing course. According to the automaker, the graduates will join the local and overseas Toyota workforce.

TMP Tech started in 2013 with a vision of providing students, who come from different regions of the country, with 'world-class' technical education. The program aimed at developing highly trainable and capable Filipino youth to ensure a stable pipeline of automotive professionals to serve the increasing demand for after-sales service manpower.

“Through TMP Tech, we shall leverage our technical, financial and human resources in order to catalyze national development. This first batch of graduates shall pave the way for future generations of Filipino Toyota professionals who shall complement and support the growing Philippine automotive industry by helping to level up the quality of Toyota’s after-sales service,” said Toyota Motor PH president Michinobu Sugata.

TMP Tech says 96 graduates will be employed by Toyoto Motor Philippines and its local dealer network, while eleven will transition to the Specialized Toyota Automotive Training Program (STATP) and eventually be deployed to exclusive Toyota dealerships in Saudi Arabia.
