Next Batch of Technical Trainees in Japan

It is my honor to be chosen as one of the participants who will be trained in Japan. Though there are many uncertainties along the way, I’m still having my high hopes that this opportunity will teach me many lessons; lessons that are not just limited to my growth as a professional but also for my development as an individual.”

I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to be part of the AOTS trainees this year. Traveling outside the Philippines is a new experience for me, so I’m quite nervous but also excited to learn more about the Japanese language, culture, and most importantly, about our work. I hope that we can all enjoy our stay in Japan and bring back a lot of new knowledge from our training”

KELPHIL continues to encourage individual employee development as they dispatched the next set of trainees for another year under the Association for Overseas Technical Scholarship (AOTS) Program which was comprised of three trainees each from the Structural group and Fujiki group and two from Architectural group.

They are to undergo 6 weeks of general language proficiency training and study on the history and culture of Japan, after that they will be dispatched to their respective assigned departments for their technical training.

I would like to thank Kelphil and Fujiki Tekkou for another opportunity to come to Japan. This will be my second time as a trainee so I would like to continue to do my best to give good representation of Kelphil in Japan.”

I’m a little nervous but also excited to enhance my skills in Nihongo and be able to communicate effectively not only for our technical training, but also in navigating day-to-day life. I also look forward to traveling, eating Japanese food, and trying new things with my teammates.”

Since it is my first time living in Japan I feel nervous and excited at the same time. I am very grateful for the opportunity to train in Japan and to learn new things from new environment. I am looking forward on witnessing Japan’s traditions, values, and all the experiences that I will cherish while living in Japan.”
