One Machine One Student Policy

Since the construction of the three storey technical school in Atlantic, Gulf & Pacific Company of Manila Foundation, Inc. summer of 2008, students have been coming individually to enroll in the 45 days Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW-NCII) courses. Non-Government institutions, even some local government offices and individuals have availed of welding edification programs for their scholars with AGPFI over other local training schools.

Ask why? Students who enrolled with AGPFI expect to surpass other 'SMAWers' in the region, get certified and win welding competitions. Renowned to have produced the best female welder in the Philippines, AG&P asserts its unique capability to harness skills of 'zero' knowledge, highschool graduate, 18 years olds to proficiency and TESDA competent welding 'gurus'.

The test in skills competency depends on TESDA and TUV assessments. AG&PFI employs two standards, the Singapore Welding Society (SWS) and the American Welding Society (AWS) standards, which make us one step better over other competitions. The need to become superior in this craft is essential since AG&P is virtually an international fabrication and heavy forming yard with world class clientele.

Pursuant to these standards AG&PFI constructed 400 welding machine booths in the three storey technical school to accommodate 400 students per shift. Two more welding Testing and academic schools are located inside the 68 hectare AG&P BHFY with no less than 300 more welding machines to handle specialized trainings in SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, FCAW, TIG, Pipe Structural welding and Submerge Arc Welding techniques. This makes AGPFI the largest and most advance welding technical school in CALABARZON and the Southern Tagalong regions.

The one machine-one student policy has been implemented to obtain the highest learning standard possible during the 45 days training. 30% class room lectures and 70% practical hands-on exercises.
