Meet the ATI 8 Management

The Agricultural Training Institute’s (ATI) role as the DA’s extension and training arm was strengthened with the Republic Act 8435 or the Agriculture and Fisheries Modernization Act (AFMA) of 1997. But in November 1998, the RFTCs were turned over to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. Also, the FTCs were renamed Provincial Training Centers.

To implement our avowed mission, our center is manned by staff of broad backgrounds and experiences who plan, organize, manage and evaluate extension programs and deliver services through training, demonstration, farm and business advisory, information and communication, and e-Extension.
