The Otomotif College (TOC) is an established provider of technical education training for students seeking careers as professional automotive technicians. Through our unique education system, TOC offers specialized technical education programmes recognized internationally. TOC is serious about upgrading the standards, competencies and knowledge of people working in the automotive industry.

The evolution of the automotive service technician in the aftermarket sector is one of our job market?s biggest success stories. Twenty-five years ago, many people incorrectly perceived the men and women who worked on their cars as simple laborers with simple tools and simple in a greasy and dirty workshop environment.

Now, automotive service technicians have become as specialized as any other high grade profession - society relies on these same technicians to help translate the complex and computerized workings of modern day vehicles and keep them on the move. More and more jobs are also becoming available for technicians.

One reason skilled automotive technicians are in such demand today is that many older technicians do not keep up with the training needed for recent technological advancements. However, it?s never too late to learn.

If tomorrow?s technicians place ongoing education as a top priority, the future can only yield brighter prospects and better employment opportunities for them. At TOC, the mindset emphasized for every student is: ?TOC is the first stepping stone, an essential foundation towards a bright career in the automotive aftermarket industry?.

Our motto is ?Driving Passion into Profession?

?To bring hope to all in the automotive industry that they can excel through formal training and take pride in their profession?
