MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte (PIA)  --  Interested and qualified youths in this city can avail of a scholarship training program for three vocational-technical courses at a private learning school here in partnership with the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA).
 
In a phone interview with the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) this morning, TESDA provincial director Rolando Juanillo said the three voch-tech courses due to open at the Saint Joseph College (SJC) Vocational Training Center include Metal Arc Welding, Plumbing, and Electrical Wiring.
 
Juanillo said he already communicated this opportunity to the 70 barangays all over this city which is the priority area for this TESDA-initiated training, and many have already responded.

Still, TESDA will not start until all slots are covered.  For metal arc welding, 43 slots were made available, and five slots are yet unfilled;  so also with electrical wiring, where 41 slots were granted.Plumbing, which also has 43 slots, were just a little over half filled-up, Juanillo said.
 
The total of 127 slots for the three mentioned voc-tech courses scholarship training was part of a P 1 million fund set aside by TESDA Secretary Emmanuel Joel Villanueva as the city’s share for this particular project, Juanillo said.
 
On Saturday during a meeting with heads or representatives of national line agencies called by Rep. Roger Mercado, Josefina Corollo of the provincial TESDA office announced that the Congressman’s request for training was already approved as part of the current scholarship program.
 
uanillo said the three vocational-technical courses do not discriminate acceptance on whether the applicant is a male or female, as long as he or she is 18 years old and above, and a high school graduate at least.
 
Welding requires 304 hours or an equivalent of 38 days, plumbing 162 hours or 20 days, while electrical wiring 402 hours or 50 days.  Students who take these courses  will assessed for a National Certificate (NC) 2 level, Juanillos further said.  (Marcelino M. Pedalino-PIA 8 Southern Leyte)
