The ATI in Caraga Region: A Backgrounder
In 1990, ATI Farmers' Training Center or FTC was established in Butan City which was then under Region X. Its office was located at the Capitol compound, with 17 staff under Dr. Efraim C. Nicolas, the Center' fist Training Center Superintendent (TCS). It was also on that year when ATI-FTC was transferred in the compound of the Northern Mindanao State Institute for Science and Technology (NORMISIST) under a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed in November 987 which stipulated that ATI shall utilize the existing training facilities of NORMISIST including the dormitories, demonstration farms for training purposes.
In early 2002, the ATI- FTC became a Regional Training Center (RTC) in the newly-created Caraga Region. It covers the provinces of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, and Surigao del Sur, plus the cities of Butuan, Surigao, and Bislig. Today it caters to recently-established province and cities of Caraga such as the province of Dinagat Island and the cities of Tandag, Bayugan, and Cabadbaran.
In 2004, a major organizational change happened in the whole ATI network.
