Choose MSC – You Will Definitely Be in Good Hands

It’s been many years since I bid goodbye to VYP-MSC Computer Learning Center.I am an alumni from batch 1999 and was the Vice President of College Department. That year was never been easy, though from reliable faculties and staffs; I was able to perform my duty as the VP of the college department. I would like to say that it was a great honor to be asked to write this testimonial.

My stay in MSC Computer Learning Centre was a very enriching experience. I came to this school to be simply acquainted with computer knowledge, and hoping it help me get immediate employment right after graduation. In reality; I got much more than an academic degree. I learned about “real-world” assignments. This was really the most solid lesson I learned from this school that helped me reach my dreams. It is difficult to sum up in few words because this school has proven many things. The atmosphere in the school is like we were a huge group of friends! The teachers were tactful, lovely, easy-going, friendly and perceptive and have experience and necessary qualifications for teaching. The staff was composed of really dynamic qualified and pleasant faculty so as to make you feel good and relaxed. The passion of the faculty to impart valuable lessons and skills to the students was really inspiring.

I chose MSC Computer Learning Centre for its uniquely relevant approach to business education, high-quality faculty, and intimate classroom environment and advanced teaching method particularly in terms of computer learning. I learned much more than I expected, both from outstanding professors with academic and business background and from my colleagues.

I worked in Philippines with few recognized companies such as PAGCOR and EPSON Precision Philippines. My position in these companies proved that my computer and business education obtained from MSC is really unfailing. In 2001, I tried my luck abroad and started my journey as a simple hotel receptionist. Due to my determination plus of course my MSC credentials, I received promotions almost every year.

In 2003, I began to impart my computer knowledge by teaching. Yes! I became a computer instructor in Abu Dhabi for almost 2 years. Believe it or not, I was giving computer lessons to students whose age were almost triple than mine. After that, I was hired in a large oil and gas company in Abu Dhabi as Secretary and I stayed there for a year. Since, this company preferred to develop UAE nationals; I searched for another job and fortunately had the post of an Executive Secretary in one of the very executive hotel properties here in Abu Dhabi. Currently, I am working as Administrative Officer reporting directly to the Chairman of the Executive Board of Abu Dhabi University, one of most recognized University and education provider in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

For existing students or to those who are still choosing which school they think would be dependable for their future, I highly recommend to choose VYP-MSC Computer Center, You will definitely be in Good Hands.

Technical-Vocational Course – Stepping Stone to Success

Bago pa man dumating ang graduation ng High School, nag-set na ako ng plano sa aking buhay.

I was aware that sending me to College would be expensive for my parents. This was my basis to come up with a decision in taking a 2-year course first, then find a job and continue my education for a 4-year degree course.

I prayed to God and submitted my dreams to guide me and show me the right way to walk through. I was surprised when I received a letter from MSC regarding my 100% scholarship for a short course in Computer Operation. I was surprised … then I grabbed that opportunity.

On 1997, I finished my 2-year Computer Technology Course, which was full of training and hands-on experiences.

Ang hirap mag-apply ng trabaho! Buti na lang nandyan ang MSC para pansamantalang kanlungan at lalo ka pang bibigyan ng mga actual training. MSC gave me priceless skills and abilities which I treasure up to now. Ito ang nagamit ko sa aking kasalukuyan trabaho upang mapa-bilib ang mga boss ko, Akala kasi nila magaling ako, ang di nila alam MSC ang nagturo sa akin noon.

I was recommended by the President of MSC, Sir Ike to CARD Bank, Inc. I was interviewed by the President of CARD Bank and hired as (probationary) IT Assistant. After 5 months I received my regular appointment and later promoted to IT Officer.

After five years of working with CARD Bank, I decided to resume my studies and took up Accountancy. I was promoted to IT Manager, and later graduated from College.

What drives me to improve my career? Maybe I was influenced by my late father who was a teacher. My father was a working student. Magtatapas (coconut farmer) siya sa umaga at napasok sa gabi. Naging 2nd honor siya noong high school at 1st honor noong college. Hindi naging sagabal kay itay ang pagiging mahirap para makapagtapos.

I may have not received any honors during my study like my father. He may not see me now and witness what I have accomplished. But I hope he is happy for me and proud of me, “My son is now a Certified Public Accountant!”.

How MSC Helped Me Find The Right Career

My life at VYP-MSC  Institute of Technology is something that I will always be proud of, and look back to. Its good people and the friendly learning experience helped me find out more about my abilities and interests. Thanks to the decision I made to take Office Management Course at MSC. My certificate has certainly served as my passport to my career.

In my entire career, I never saw myself working in stressful business environments till I made my very hard decision of leaving the country eight years ago, armed with the dream of finding greener pasture. My new start abroad wasn’t very disappointing as I found a job after a month in a huge oil and gas organization. Carrying my valid MSC certificate, good computer skills, knowledge and good training plus my faith in God, I was given the chance to work as a Project Secretary in the offshore project team. That was the first entry-level job I had which was not easy for me in the beginning – working with a multi-cultural team.

Like any other Filipino worker, I experienced discrimination, being the only Filipino and female member in the project team. However, with each passing day, I felt it funny that people started coming to me for help. It was undeniably my computer skills and not-so-bad English skills that have helped me to survive and gain respect from my co-workers.

The secretarial course is in high demand in every business settings. It is a course which must be encouraged. I found job stability with this career and indeed opened for me other career options. My good accounting training at MSC led me to my present job, responsible for administrative and accounting functions.

I can say every school will give a piece of paper that would help one to acquire knowledge and skills, but very few can actually give you both, to be successful in your chosen field. This I can say: “I have found both at MSC”.

My MSC experience was indeed incredible and helped me find the right career.

Sa MSC Caregiving Course – pay 50% later!

Para sa mga naninirahan sa barangay ng San Gabriel, San Miguel, at mga karatig na mga barangay na nais mag-aral ng Caregiving, maari nang mag-enrol na kalahati lamang ang babayaran. Ang matitirang kalahati ay babayaran kapag nakakuha na ng trabaho.
Ito ang pahayag ni G. Ike Prudente sa pag-balik niya at kanyang pamilya sa San Gabriel na tahanan nila noong 70’s at 80’s. Kasama nila sa paglipat sa San Gabriel ang buong paaralan ng VYP-MSC Institute of Technology, kabilang na ang Caregiving School nito. Para sa iba pang mga detalye ay magtungo lamang sa MSC.

San Gabriel: bagong tahanan ng MSC IT

Abril 2012 nang lumipat ang buong VYP-MSC Institute of Technology sa Barangay San Gabriel, San Pablo City.

Ngayon ay napakalawak at napakamaaliwalas na ang paligid ng mga mag-aaral dahil sa malalaking puno at magagandang halaman sa loob at paligid ng paaralan.
Magandang balita rin ito para sa mga naninirahan dito at sa mga katabing lugar dahil sa mayroon nang malapit at de kalidad na paaralang pwedeng pasukan nang mga batang taga rito.

Green School undergoes continuous improvement

Now that MSC has completely trasferred to its Green School Campus in San Gabriel, its facilities continue to be upgraded to keep pace, if not, be better than schools located in the city proper.
Among the facilities are:
– well-equipped science/robotics lab.
– airconditioned 38-unit computer lab.
– well ventilated, eco-friendly classrooms
– campus-wide wi-fi access
– basketball court and open grounds
– music room – under construction using plastic bottles as building material

Maging “BOOKKEEPER” sa halagang 8-libong piso lamang… (… o Programmer, o Computer Technician)

Maaari nang makapagtapos ng kursong Bookkeeping, Programming, at Computer Hardware Sevicing (o Computer Technician) sa napakababang halagang maaring umabot lamang nang walong libong piso. Ito ay dahil sa diskwentong maaring umabot hanggang 40%.
Bukod pa sa napakababang bayarin ay maari ding matapos ang isang kurso sa loob lamang ng isang semestre o apat na buwan! Kaya’t ang mga kursong iniaalok ng MSC ay maaaring matapos ng wala pang dalawang taon.
Dahil dito ay ilang uri ng trabaho ang naghihintay sa kanya sa panahong makapagtapos siya sa MSC.
Para sa karagdagang detalye, magsadya sa MSC Institute of Technology sa San Gabriel, san Pablo City

A school with 4 LIBRARIES (only @ MSC)

Yes you read it right, MSC has four libraries!
The main library contains general information and reference books for high school and tech-voc courses. Several Internet-enabled computers are also in the library for research and email.
A “science library corner” which contains Science and Robotics books is found in the science lab. while a similar “computer science library” which contains reference boks on programming, hardware servicing, and miscellaneous software is located at the computer lab.

The newest is a 40 sq. m. “Silid Booklatan”, a joint project of Booklat Isip Inc., Kiwanis Club-Buklod San Pablo, United Architects of the Phils. – UP Diliman Chapter, and MSC. Located near the main entrance of the school, its holdings range from nursery and children’s books, mystery and action novels, magazines, and hi-tech trade books.
Silid Booklatan aims to develop the habit of reading among community members, especially the youth that is why it is open to the public. So if you happen to pass by MSC, do not hesitate to come and read some books at Silid Booklatan.

Mga mag-aaral ng MSC, gagamit ng Tablet PC

Simula sa darating na pasukan sa Hunyo, 2013, magsisimula na ang paggamit ng mga estudyante sa MSC nang tablet PC para sa kanilang mga leksiyon.
Ayon kay G. Ike Prudente, ito ay bilang pagtugon sa adhikain ng MSC na manguna sa kaalaman at paggamit ng makabagong teknolohiya lalo na sa pag-aaral ng mga kabataan.
Unti-unting papalitan ng nasabing tablet PC ang mga aklat na simula’t-sapol ay pinagkukunan ng kaalaman ng mga mag-aaral. Pati leksiyon ng mga guro ay ilalagay sa isang “server” kung saan makikita ng mga mag-aaral ang mga ito sa pamamagitan ng tablet PC.
