ACTS Review Center had its humble beginnings in September 1998 in Manila in the Philippines. It was almost an impossible undertaking because of other giant review schools around. We thought hard about this daunting challenge; however, we still decided to go on, unsure what lies ahead. Our only weapon was our good intentions, and with God’s grace, we were able to start our first group in December of the same year. We started with a meager 48 students but was very thankful since we would be able to start sharing our mission- “A Commitment To Service”. It was one of the most beautiful experiences. The caring, helpful staff and faculty followed through the course. From extensive lectures to thousands of challenging test questions; from performance counseling to spiritual preparation, ACTS provided the foundation for successful exam performance. We were there at the test center to offer moral support for our group. Then finally, the moment of truth, all 48 of them passed the March 1999 Medical Technology licensure examination. In addition to that two of them made it to the top ten positions. Glory to God!
Two weeks after the examination results were released, we received lots of calls and inquiries for our next review. More than 500 inquiries about our next course were received. It was indeed a miracle!
And through the years, we have remained steadfast with our vision and objectives and we will continue to strive harder to provide the services you need for your success.
