ATSC, the first and only aviation school in Cotabato City, was founded by Engr. Michael M. Mustapha, MBA in 2013 and incorporated in Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2014. It initially offers aviation courses such as Associate in Aircraft Maintenance Technology and Aviation Electronics Technology duly accredited by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).
As the student population grew, ATSC sought the accreditation of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to offer various technical-vocational courses such as EIM NCII, EPAS NCII, PVSI NCII, CSS NCII, BKP NCIII and TM1. In 2019, ATSC reached another milestone by being the first school in Cotabato City (and currently the only school) to be accredited by TESDA to offer Philippine Qualification Framework (PQF) Level 5 Diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology and Electronics Engineering Technology.
ATSC believes that the Industrial Revolution 4.0 is the future thus, in another pioneering activity, ATSC incorporated Virtual Reality (VR) to its program. Students can now learn and make use of the unlimited potential of VR without compromising safety. They can gain access to highly sophisticated and expensive industry equipment and conduct experiments repeatedly. In a real laboratory, a simple mistake of mixing chemicals can endanger students but with VR, they can afford to make mistakes and repeat the process again, not to mention the immersive experience the student gets from this. Students can be exploring the Moon without leaving Earth, now that's what I call fun learning to the next level.
