what our clients say...

“The TMT did a good job because the training is well-prepared; well-planned and well funded. The design of the training provided us good knowledge and understanding that is very applicable to us, senior citizens. The objectives were all absorbed; our expectation was not just met but it was surpassed.” We are so very much thankful to the City Social Welfare Office and the ATI-RTC 7 for including us in this kind of training because the training provided us with confidence. The methods used in the training such as lecture and video showing provided us more to learn. Again, thank you so much ATI. I hope there is still more training to come.
