The school was established in June 2002 at sacred hearth Village, Caloocan CIty by the generous and charitable Madame Mary M. Vicente, president, and Engineer Reynaldo Corpuz, administrator.
The school was initially named "LOG ON TODAY," but the management change later on decided to change it, as it litirary sounded like an internet cafe. Inspired by the phrase, "Be trained to be the best, Be link to succsess," BESTLINK came out to be more appropiate. Since Bestlink offers computer based courses, it was eventually decided to name the BESTLINK INSTITUTE OF INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGY.
With its mission and vission of providing holistic training TESDA-accredited Bestlink started with four computer courses. These are Computer System Design and Programming, Computerized Office management, Computer technology and Networking, and Computer Graphics and Web Development.
Bestlink started its operations with seven students: five from Computerized OfficeManagement and two from Computer System Design and Programming. Its first location did not appeal positively to public patronage, so the school did not attain the expected number of students. Bestlink started its operations with seven students: five from Computerized Office Management and two from Computer System Design and Programming. Its first location did not appeal positively to public patronage, so the school did not attain the expected number of students. During that time, Bestlink had only four faculty members: Engr. Reynaldo Corpuz, math instructor and administrator; Mr. Vincent Carlo Garados, computer instructor and IT coordinator; Respicio Siringan, English instructor; and Ms. Marimel Loya, office management instructor, cashier, and student affairs and marketing coordinator.
In 2004, Bestlink, with its new administraion headed by Engr, Diosdado T. Lleno, school director, decided to move to its new location at 1044 Brgy. Sta. Monica Quirino Highway, Novaliches, Quezon City. This strategic location led to a huge increase in the number of students.
In 2005, through the persistent efforts of Engr. Lleno, and Mr. Charlie Cariño as the academic consultant, Bestlink offered an additional course, Hotel and Restaurant Services (HRS). The course incorporates seven modules: Commercial Cooking, Food and Beverage Service, Housekeeping, Bartending, Baking and Pastry, Tour Guiding, and Front Office Services.
In 2007, with the continuous increase of students, Bestlink temporarily held its classes at Annex 1 fronting the Main Building. The following year, the school acquired three lots adjacent to Greenfield's I Subdivision. On the first lot stood a two-storey building which used to be a bank. This was improved by Bestlink, such that the ground floor served as the administration office and the second floor housed the school library.
On the second lot, the original structure was remodeled into a mock hotel to suit the needs of the school as well as serve as training facility for HRS students. A five-storey building was constructed on the third lot to provide the increasing number of enrollees with quality facilities in line with its vision of providing quality education.
A new structure was added on the vacant space to serve as cooking lab-training room of HRS students. The HRS laboratory and other facilities were transferred to the newly built mock hotel which was inaugurated in August 2008.
Due to its continuing expansion, Bestlink started to offer the CHED ladderized program (4-year degree courses): BSIT, BSHRM, BSOA, and BSBA major in Marketing and Human Resource Management. The Permit to Operate (PTO) for the first two courses was granted by CHED on 2009 and the last two courses on 2010. It can be proudly stated that these courses are now in their full swing for the school year 2010 - 2011.
Now that the school has gained its height of success through the collaborative participation of the faculty, staff, studentry, parents, and the community. Bestlink has indeed excelled to the cause of taking functional and educational leadership in this part of the city.
