Espino leads blessing of training bus and training truck


TO fast-track the delivery of mobile training opportunities to every Pangasinense, the Provincial Government of Pangasinan has acquired one training truck and remodeled a bus to become a training hub.

Leading the blessing of the two vehicles, Governor Amado I. Espino, III said that these vehicles add to the existing three training trucks following the intensification of the Mobile Skills Training Project (MSTP) of the provincial government aimed at bringing trainings to various localities in Pangasinan, particularly the farthest and remotest areas within the province.

With these added resources, the provincial chief executive urged all Pangasinenses to avail of the manpower entrepreneurship development project of the provincial government in partnership with Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

“Sana samantalahin natin ang mga ganitong resources at ganitong mga programa para makatulong sa kanilang paghahanap-buhay,” said Governor Espino pledging to craft more job-placement projects to assist Pangasinenses.

Governor Espino further stated that the provincial government remains true to its calling to address unemployment issues in the province, and hence, the provincial government plans to acquire more training trucks that cater Pangasinenses in all six districts of Pangasinan.

Provincial Employment Services Office (PESO) Manager Alex F. Ferrer stressed that skills trainings are designed to benefit job-seeking Pangasinenses to qualify to various job opportunities offered by local, national and international agencies.

“We conduct trainings to enhance their skills and make them employable,” Ferrer disclosed noting that all training trucks are equipped with training technologies and other tools.

“Kumpleto ang lahat ng ating training trucks na para talagang nasa loob ng isang classroom,” Ferrer said as he discussed that mobile training trucks may return to one town or city offering other training courses, such as: carpentry, plumbing, masonry and basic electrical installation and maintenance.

The PESO manager further stated that the MSTP has produced more than 500 skilled workers from about 15 towns and cities of Pangasinan.

The blessing of the vehicles also coincided with the blessing of the PESO Building officiated by Rev. Fr. Hernan C. Caronongan. /Shiella Mae C. De Guzman
