The Otomotif College (TOC) is an established provider of technical education training for students seeking careers as professional automotive technicians. Through our unique education system, TOC offers specialized technical education programmes recognized internationally. TOC is serious about upgrading the standards, competencies and knowledge of people working in the automotive industry.

The evolution of the automotive service technician in the aftermarket sector is one of our job market's biggest success stories. Twenty-five years ago, many people incorrectly perceived the men and women who worked on their cars as simple laborers with simple tools and simple in a greasy and dirty workshop environment.

Now, automotive service technicians have become as specialized as any other high grade profession - society relies on these same technicians to help translate the complex and computerized workings of modern day vehicles and keep them on the move, More and more jobs are also becoming available for technicians.

One reason skilled automotive technicians are in such demand today is that many older technicians do not keep up with the training needed for recent technological advancements. However, it's never too late to learn.

If tomorrow's technicians place ongoing education as a top priority, the future can only yield brighter prospects and better employment opportunities for them. At TOC, the mindset emphasized for every student is:

'TOC is the first stepping stone, an essential foundation towards a bright career in the automotive aftermarket industry'.

Our motto is 'Driving Passion into Profession'

Academic Strength

TOC's dedicated trainers go through a special train-the-trainers programme conducted from experienced trainers to ensure that courses are delivered to students in the most effective manner and maintain the quality of teaching.

Learning at TOC is fun and full of excitement where students spend 70% of their time on practical hands-on training.

The programme combines training on mechanical and electronic aspects of modern vehicle systems which enable them to carry out maintenance and repair work effectively on today's vehicles.

Scheduled on-the-job-training (OJT) at real-life automotive service centers is a key feature of the programme. Students will spend their OJT at designated service centres where their progress will be continuously monitored and reviewed throughout the training period by TOC's quality assurance team, This gives the students a good balance of college life and practical real-life application. TOC graduates are highly sought after by reputable brands in the automotive industry because they not only have very strong fundamentals but also have undergone 8-9 months of industrial training in the course of their training.

Technological advances have resulted in a new breed of automobiles - modern marvels that can do everything from calculating driving directions to playing movies. Thus, as our vehicles have evolved, so have their caretakers: Today's automotive technicians have become the brain surgeons of the automotive industry.

The need for professional technicians goes beyond sheer numbers. Manufacturers and dealers need not only more technicians, they need better technicians - graduates who are professional, self-motivated and service- oriented.

Yesterday's technicians got by with a solid set of tools - a jock, a wrench, a screwdriver - and an honest reputation, Today's technicians - and those of the future - must have hiigh- level thinking and problem-solving skills similar to aviation technicians and electrical engineers.

They must have an increasingly broad knowledge of how the complex components of a vehicle work and interact, as well as an understanding of the electronic diagnostic and computer-based technical reference materials. Adept use of traditional hand tools is still important, but now this skill set must be complemented by a sharp understanding of computerized equipment as well as customer service know-how the Otomotif College has geared itself to the FUTURE. We are in the business of providing solutions to tomorrow's need and bridging the gap left by the changing trends in the automotive aftermarket.
