Isuzu Philippines Corp. has welcomed a fresh batch of scholars who will undergo training at the Isuzu-funded auto-mechanic training center of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) in Tacloban, Leyte.
Eighteen students are gearing up for the course which will earn them an NC4 certification, currently the highest level in auto-mechanic training in the Philippines.
"This is our company's small way of giving back to a society that has been very good to us," Isuzu Philippines president Ryoji Yamazaki said in a statement. "We know that by supporting this program, we are doing our share in pointing the Philippines towards progress--which, in turn, will also benefit the whole automotive industry."
A total of 93 students, including the latest batch, have been benefiting from Isuzu's corporate social responsibility program. The first batch is scheduled to graduate in October.
