Asian Carmakers Corp., the official distributor of BMW vehicles in Philippines, is hoping to arm more Filipinos with technical and industrial skills through an additional training facility to be established in Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro City.
The company has contributed P72.3 million for the construction of the Jose Ch. Alvarez (JCA) Technology Complex reportedly inside the Manresa campus. The university’s Center for Industrial Technology (CIT) will be transferred to the said facility which is expected to be completed next year.
Students enrolled in the programs to be offered at the JCA Technology Complex will have the option to train in BMW dealerships. They also have a chance to be absorbed by the company.
“I personally believe in the value of having good education and I recognize the talent of the Filipino youth and their need for progressive educational institutions,” Asian Carmakers chairman Jose Ch. Alvarez said.
The JCA Technology Complex will offer automotive technology as one of its courses and students enrolled in this program have the option to undergo training at different BMW dealerships and eventually get absorbed into the company
