Olongapo City Skills Training Center

Sunday, August 16, 2009


After one and a half (1 ½) months of German Language training, twenty (20) Olongapeños has finally completed the course.

The German Language training, a brainchild of Mayor Gordon earned good feedback and comments from the graduates. “I am proud of myself now that I have more than two spoken languages, aside from Tagalog and English,” said Jocelyn Cruz, one of the graduates.

“I thank Mayor Gordon and Ms. Sanchez for this opportunity and I’d like to encourage my fellow Olongapeños to try the various trainings being offered in the Skills Training Center,” said Zha-zha Cristine Bernabe, another graduate.

This is just one of the various skills training that the city government has put up to increase the chances of Olongapenos to land decent and acceptable jobs. “Our skills trainings have made some of our fellow Olongapeño excel in their chosen field,” Mayor James Gordon, Jr. said.

In an interview over dwGO am radio with Reggie Sanchez, German language instructress, she said that she was overwhelmed with the warm response of the students. She added that enthusiasm and motivation to learn manifested in them. Sanchez who lived in Germany for 24 years added that she got more surprised after knowing that the second batch of trainees, which began classes on August 12, has jumped to sixty (60).

The graduates of the German language training now have better chances to be hired as call center agents as soon as the Europhil Company opens at Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ).
