Intern turned Store Manager

Ran M. Bernardo, 30 years old, came all the way from Iloilo to the University of Perpetual Help Las Pinas to try his best luck in the automotive industry. He enrolled in a short course in Quick Auto Service Training Program in UPH and was sent to Japan for internship.

Quick Auto Service Training Program is a TESDA accredited 6-month modular course offered by the University of Perpetual Help DALTA. This short course offers its students a chance to undergo international professional development and training. Successful selected trainees are given a chance to work as a mechanic trainee for three years with allowance.

Struggling to communicate in a foreign land, Ran did not waste the chance to practice his Nihongo skills by immersing himself with his Japanese colleagues in order not just to learn the language but also the culture wholeheartedly.

Just like all other foreign workers in Japan, Ran also battled homesickness. He recalled that going around Japan and focusing on learning the language were some of his diversions that kept him from feeling homesick again.

Ran stayed in Japan for three years and was already earning 150,000 Japanese Yen plus sales incentives.

After the 3-year internship program, Ran was absorbed by Motech, the biggest auto servicing chain in the Philippines. Right now, Ran is already a store manager of Motech Las Pinas and enjoying the fruits of his labor. Ran may not have finished a four-year course but he was able to advance in his career a lot faster than the others through the Quick Auto Service Program of the University of Perpetual Help.
