History of PCT

It initially offered short-term programs, where students were able to train in a particular skill as typing, auto servicing, machine servicing and electronics servicing, to name a few. After a few years, PCT’s short-term program offerings widened in answer to the growing demand for skilled workers in the paramedical industry. It offered Nursing Aide, Pharmacy Aide, Physical Therapy Aide, and Physiotherapy Aide programs.
PCT also started to offer one- and two-year Tech/Voc programs registered with TESDA: Hotel & Restaurant Management, Computer Programming, Computer Secretarial, Computer Technology, Automotive Technology, Electronics Technology, Health Care Services and more. In 2000, the school officially became Philippine College of Technology with the introduction of its first degree program, BS in Hotel & Restaurant Management.
