AMCI CATS was formed for the 1st induction climb for batch 1999. It was composed of four groups joined together as sister groups. The Group Leaders or Advisers are from batch 1998: Dong Corpuz, Malvin Agra, Dante Tablizo and Jim Samonte.

Among the four, only the groups of Dante and Jim were able to make it to the resort, or the end of the induction. Actually, they were the only ones who made it among the whole team, along with the lead pack and the guides. The others had to bivouac and spend an extra night along the trail.
