BRIGHT FUTURE SEEN IN WELDING
The center has produced 7,910 graduates as of June 2009 with the graduation of its 116th batch of trainees.
Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. is stepping up the free trainings in welding to encourage more Olongapeños to take advantage of the present demand for Filipino welders.
There is a big chance that one could definitely land a job after completing the program. “Kahit elementary graduate ka lang, makakapagtrabaho ka basta matapos mo ang training sa welding,” Gordon said.
Upon completion of the said training which runs for three weeks, covering a week for theoretical discussion and two weeks for actual welding, the trainee can opt to take an assessment examination at the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for certification.
Interested individuals aged 18 years old and above, physically fit and willing to learn may register at the Skills Training Center, 3rd Floor, City Hall Complex or call telephone numbers 224-8390 local 4229 or 4246.
