The Philippines Missionary Training is a place where missionaries receive religious instruction and language training and learn teaching skills. They also develop a respect and cultural understanding for the areas where they will serve before traveling to these destinations. Training lasts from three weeks to three months, depending on language needs. 

Members of the Church as well as those from other faiths are welcome to see the two new MTC buildings (Pod 3 and 4). The tour is good for 30-40 minutes.
