What is ATI-RTC 8?

ATI-RTC 8 or Agricultural Training Institute - Regional Training Center 8 is the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture in Eastern Visayas. Based at the scenic campus of the Visayas State University, it is one of the 16 Regional Training Centers in the Philippines.

As the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture, we are mandated to provide continuing education services hoped to empower agricultural and fishery stakeholders to make them effective agents of rural development.

Through participatory extension, we believe that we can significantly contribute to the making of dynamic communities who do profitable business out of agriculture and fishery in a society characterized by freedom and equity.
