New partner in education. MONARK Foundation, Inc. is now among one of the partners of SM Foundation in its education advocacy. A memorandum of agreement was recently signed between the two in line with SM Foundation’s recent announcement of supporting an additional 1,000 technical-vocational students under its scholarship program for 2016. Monark Foundation will be offering the Heavy Equipment Servicing NC II course under the partnership. The Institute adopts the dual training system of education where scholars acquire sufficient and quality technical knowledge in school and practical competencies in the industry. It is accredited by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and is a sublicensee of CATERPILLAR Institute of Australia.
