The CLCC Institute of Computer, Arts and Technology ( formerly Computer Learning Center of Calapan, Inc. ) was founded in 1991. Although regular classes opened in August, CLCC was formally inaugurated on September 8 because of the incorporators' ardent desire to honor the Blessed Virgin on her birthday.
This institution was born through the cooperative efforts of three computer enthuasiasts, Mr. Francis Castro, DWCC Mathematics Subject Chairman, Eng. Leo Bucas, Dean of the DWCC Engineering Department, and Mrs. Marjorie R. Mendoza, Head of DWCC Commerce Department. After acquiring some units of computer and having a faculty of well trained instructors, the school began to offer modular courses on modular literacy (duly acknowledged by the Securities and Exchange Commission). Then it endeavored to offer two-year courses which aim to provide a firm and disciplined successful study and practice of computer education.
This endeavor was not put in vain for in October, Government Permit No. TV-P042, s.1992 was granted to CLCC to offer the following two-year courses: Office Management with Computer, Electronic Computer Technician; the one-year Computer Hardware Technology course; and the computer literacy courses such as Disk Operating System, Word Processing, Database and Spreadsheet. Government Recognition No. TV-R025, s. 1993 for these courses was then granted on July 6, 1993.
Moreover in its ardent aim to offer more varied educational program and both computer and vocational courses, CLCC decided to add courses. And so on September 21, the DECS issued Government Permit No. TV-E058, s.1994 authorizing CLCC to offer two-year courses as Computer Bookkeeping, Computerized Management and one-year courses like Computer Programming, and Electronic Service Technician.
CLCC began to operate with the supervision of Mr. Francis Castro, the first President with invaluable help of Engr. Leo Bucas, Mrs. Marjorie Mendoza, Engr. Mar Roxas, Miss Girlie S. Sonoron and Mr. Sherwin Villao. After 2 ½ months, Miss Nora G. Dacillo came into the scene by serving as full-time working incorporator. She took the position of Corporate Secretay, Registrar and Office Manager; first two positions she still holds up to the present. Then in SY 1992-93 Mrs. Erlinda Caringal began to work as full time working incorporator. Eventually, she was elected President when aMr. Castro resigned. Since Mrs. Caringal has been holding this post.
It is noteworthy to mention the very important role of Mrs. Marjorie Mendoza, another working incorporator, in the operation of CLCC. Being the Administrative and Finance Officer of the school, CLCC has been running smoothly in terms of finances and has remained stable and solvent for further improvements and development of the school.
