Most of us are already familiar with Power Mac Center (PMC) as the place where one can buy Apple products and accessories. Now, it's more than a store where you can shop for gadgets.
PMC recently launched its Apple Authorized Training Center (AATC) in Greenbelt 3 which made the local Apple Authorized Reseller the first to receive the internationally recognized certification to offer IT Track courses in the country. The AATC, which has Apple Certified Trainers, offers hands-on Apple certification programs and exams for creative and IT professionals looking to establish their expertise and better market their skills in the field of digital technology. Aside from those, PMC also offers non-certification courses to groups and individuals who want to learn or expand their know how on Mac OS basic and pro applications.
Before, Filipinos had to go out of the country just to take Apple Certification courses. "We are pleased to provide our local customers access to Apple Certification programs which they could only previously avail with costly overseas trips," expressed Maleng Raysag, PMC's Training and Education Manager.
"With Mac becoming more popular in local industries and professions, the AATC certification [becomes] a unique opportunity for Power Mac Center to further bring global competence to the Filipino Mac user," pronounced Joey Alvarez, PMC Marketing Manager.
During the launch, we were given a brief presentation on the courses offered by Apple Certified Trainers Andrew Lizardo and Marianne Villeza. We also learned more about Aperture, Apple's professional photography application, from Gunther Deichmann, a world-renowned photographer who's also an Apple Certified Trainer.
"The globally acknowledged AATC certification speaks of Power Mac Center's continued investment in the talents of its people," said Alvarez. "It further raises the level of commitment of all our employees to a truly reliable and outstanding service as demostrated by the global Apple workforce."
