“MFI Polytechnic Institute envisions its students to be highly efficient and skilled practitioners after they complete our training programs. We will benefit greatly from the expertise of Schneider Electric Philippines to make our training programs more impactful and innovative through their commitment and advocacy for greener practices and sustainability,” said Dr. Jose Sandejas, president and chairman of MFI Polytechnic in the media interview held in Pasig City.

Rey del Mundo, field sales manager of Schneider Electric Philippines, said the partnership with MFI Polytechnic is part of the company’s initiative to equip the youth with the knowledge with the latest energy management techniques that can help build and develop sustainable communities.

“We at Schneider Electric strongly believe in the potential and capabilities of the youth which is why we continue to pursue similar partnerships like what we have with MFI Polytechnic Institute,” del Mundo said.

“By giving them the necessary tools, they are more equipped not only in better understanding the energy industry, but helping Schneider Electric push its message forward of transforming cities, reshaping industries and enriching lives through sustainable energy management and automation.”

Apart from getting additional training modules, del Mundo said MFI students will also learn about Schneider Electric’s products, solutions, and best practices.

The academe-industry linkage, he said, will broaden the knowledge of the students and will enable them to have first-hand experience of Schneider Electric’s innovations and witness how they are working to promote sustainable practices among households and businesses.

Richelle dela Cruz, offer marketing manager of Schneider Philippines, said the company is helping MFI Polytechnic Institute provide its students with a comprehensive training experience.

Through this partnership, she said students who are taking up these training programs have an opportunity to become more knowledgeable of growth potentials and technically competitive as they explore working in the different fields of the energy industry.

“This will make them competitive in the local and global environments,” dela Cruz said.

MFI Polytechnic Institute is an accredited assessment centre of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda). It conducts technical and vocational educational trainings (TVET) that have National Certificate qualifications and has the credibility to provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points to professionals upon completion of the trainings.
