Henricson B. Villamor , a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology(BSIT) graduate, took 10th spot in the Registered Master Electrician(RME) Licensure Examination given in April of 2016. The result was released on April 15th, Friday.
Villamor joined 9 others sharing tenth place. The Professional Regulation Commission(PRC) declared 1,633 successful examinees out of 2,914 nationwide . CTU is satisfied with 37 passers out of 45.
The College of Technology (COT) is consistent in producing RME topnotchers since the offering of the program. One of the reasons for this success is the contribution of one of its faculty members, Dr. Aquilino A. Enriquez.
“I’m alone conducting the review classes outside CTU,” Dr. Enriquez said to cater to interested BSIT graduates and other individuals from other institutions. USJR’s Jermaine T. Cabañero, another 10th placer, benefited from the routine.
He prepares them for two and a half months prior to the April and September exams. “The review is done on Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. because some of them work at Mactan Export Processing Zone (MEPZ),” he added.
Moreover, CTU not only banks on review classes to gain a higher percentage in the exam but also on its on-the-job training (OJT) program that exposes students to major industries such as Mactan Electric Company (MECO), Taiheiyo Cement Phils., KL Electro-Mechanical Technologies Inc., Itech RAR Solutions Inc., Metaphil, East Asia Utilities Corp., RNS Power Systems, IPI, Tsuneishi, Cebu Mitsumi Inc., NA Systems Inc., and Tritech Microsystems.
