I was the Only Resident Instructor at Mnet IT Training Solutions (Before I decided to close it down )
Many people are asking me why close it down? We have a maximum of 35 students per class. Our schedules are all full 1-2 months before the training starts.
The Reason? The CCNA Curriculum was changed – so many topics were added that makes it impossible to discuss everything in 5 days.
Our normal training day starts at 8am and ends at 10pm – sometimes later.
I talk non-stop for the entire day. Hindi ako kagaya ng ibang instructors na ang hilig magpa-break :p (Wala ng ginagawa kundi magpakain ng magpakain – such a waste of time)
The only break my students had is a 30minute lunch break, 30 minutes working dinner break, and tig-5 minutes wiwi break.
All of this just to make sure that I cover the most topics that I can. To make sure na naintindihan ng mga students ko lahat.
Why? Because I know the value of their time and money.
Alam ko yung feeling na ma-badtrip sa instructor dahil walang kwenta.
Alam ko yung feeling ng halos mamatay sa antok dahil walang paki yung nagtuturo kung nage-gets ko ba o hindi. (Pero in fairness, ang galing nilang mag-english at magbasa ng powerpoint).
Alam ko yung feeling na hindi ko alam kung ano nangyayari. Alam ko matalino naman ako – pero bakit wala akong ma-gets?
Gusto kong magtanong. Pero ano nga itatanong ko kung wala naman akong maintindihan?
Yung magpapaturo ako sa instructor kasi ginawa ko na lahat pero ayaw talaga gumana – and ma-badtrip sya sakin kasi nagpapaturo pa ako at mapagbintangan na ‘Wala akong dugong Cisco’. tsk.
Or, READ THE FUCKING MANUAL ( Sa Linux naman ‘to. Bwisit talaga yung instructor ko dun).
Yung feeling na sana pinang-Hongkong ko na lang yung training fee na binayad ko, sana masaya pa ako kasi nakita ko si Mickey Mouse.
In fairness, dahil sa lahat ng mga instructors na napagdaanan ko – natuto ako.
Natuto ako kung paano HINDI magturo. Kung paano wag sila gayahin.
All of my previous students back when I was teaching classroom trainings can attest – todo effort ako pag may klase.
Pero sa dami ng topics – hindi ko na kinaya yung todo effort.
Nasira yung singing career ko. haha. Nasobrahan yung lalamunan ko kakasalita.
So I decided to rest – and closed down Mnet.
I decided to pursue my lifelong passion and enrolled in a Culinary School.
Magtatayo ako ng restaurants.
Pero, hindi pa ngayon.
Alam ko yung quality ng mga bootcamps ngayon – same pa rin when I was a student.
Most of them (Not all) pera-pera na lang.
They don’t care about the students.
So, I decided to teach again.
Pero hindi na classroom training (Or, bootcamp if you want to call it that) – hindi na kaya ng lalamunan ko yung maghapon na nagsasalita.
Why? To reach more Pinoys. Most of my students now are Filipinos living abroad, or in the provinces.
Based sa experience ko on teaching so many students at once – I have developed a teaching methodology that makes Cisco easy to understand.
And thru words – guide my students to setup, configure and troubleshoot without me needing to be always by their side.
I’ve already trained thousands of once aspiring Network Engineers who are now employed to the biggest telcos and Fortune 500 companies in the Philippines and abroad.
Minsan nagugulat na lang sila, isang buong NOC (Network Operations Center) team puro previous students ko
