Two graduates of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Auto Mechanic Training Centre bagged second place at the 9th Isuzu World Technical Competition (2014 I-1), Category B, held at Kawasaki, Japan. They represented Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC).

Rey Bombita of Isuzu Pasig and Roel Gacela of Isuzu Davao, who were coached by Napoleon Marquez, were selected from among the winners of the annual Isuzu Philippines Competition held in May 2014 at IPC Laguna.

They are also holders of TESDA national Certificate in Automotive Servicing National Certificate I to IV.

This was the first time that graduates of the TESDA Automotive Training Center participated and represented Isuzu Philippines in the skills competition.

TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva congratulated the TESDA specialists on their feat and stressed the importance of continuous learning and technology in their field of specialization.

"TESDA and the entire country are proud that our specialists are using every ounce of technical vocational skills learned in school and in the workplace to achieve great feat," Villanueva said.

The Isuzu World Technical Competition is designed for Isuzu's most accomplished service technicians, testing both their techniques and knowledge. It aims to heighten the level of the Japanese carmaker's service in every country it is present in. The ultimate goal is to provide Isuzu customers around the world with the best possible after-sales service.

The competition has two components: technical and written. The technical competition consists of vehicle inspection, vehicle repairs and engine procedures. The written competition consists of questions relating to knowledge necessary in basic structure and operations, adjustment and diagnosis of engine and chassis, and the unique content of Isuzu vehicles.
