Student Testimonials

Yung Yat Hang, Hong Kong

Diploma in Modern Automotive Technology, 1 year and 2 months of 2½ years

Hi. Life at TOC is simply great. I love cars and I want to know more about them.
Most of the trainers are highly skilled. They are dedicated and willing to give and share their expertise and insight. They are very concerned with the students’ progress. What I like is the number of student per class - very small therefore the teaching becomes personalised, making it easier for me to interact with the trainers. At TOC, I am exposed to real-life function and situation of a workshop. The programme is designed in such a way; the industrial training is in between semester, therefore by the end of the programme, I am confident that I would become a market-ready qualified technician.

A. J. F Shaima, Colombo, Sri Lanka

Diploma in Modern Automotive Technology, 3rd month of 2½ years

Hello! My name is Shaima and I am from Colombo, Sri Lanka. I have been in Malaysia for a couple of years before I decided to join TOC and pursue the Diploma in Modern Automotive Technology. I know it’s strange for a girl to be interested in automotive programme, but I have this curiosity about engines and how they work since I was a child. I was always trying to learn about the way automotive mechanism works…and TOC has been able to fulfill my curiosity.

The staffs at TOC are just great! The trainers are friendly, nice and helpful – they teach at the pace we can understand easily. TOC has prepared a very conducive environment/ facilities and the latest diagnostic tools and equipments and training cars – these had helped with my learning abilities. I am sure that the training provided in TOC will be beneficial for me when I step into the automotive industry in future.
