LINGAYEN – Twenty-four residents of Anda recently completed the 15-day skills training in basic carpentry and masonry organized by the provincial government on February 26 through the Mobile Skills Training Project (MSTP) administered by the Provincial Employment Services Office (PESO).
“Maraming salamat po sa pamamahagi ng libreng training sa amin. Sana po ipagpatuloy niyo pa po ang mga programang tulad nito,” said Angelo C. Avelino, one of the beneficiaries.
Avelino hailed the employment program for enabling workers to develop their skills and look for better job opportunities.
Pangasinan PESO Manager Alex F. Ferrer said unemployment issues in the province and to delivery services to the far-flung areas in the province will always remain a top priority for the provincial government led by Gov. Amado Espino III.
“Hindi kami hihinto na mag-ikot sa buong lalawigan hanggang sa maubos ang unemployed na Pangasinense,” Ferrer remarked.
To further intensify the mobile skills training project, Espino plans to acquire three more training trucks to add to the three training trucks of the province, Ferrer said.
The trucks will serve as official training hubs in the six districts of the province.
Ferrer also cited the monthly job fairs conducted at the PESO Compound here and in towns and cities through its “Job Fair On Wheels”, the first-of-its-kind in the country.
He added that the program will soon have personalized training bus which for women.
All graduates are entitled to the Php2,000 allowance from the provincial government to help them in their efforts seek employment. Graduates who wish to start their own business will receive the allowance in kind.
Ferrer was joined by Councilor Ricky Camba, Anda PESO Manager Marielle Fay Aqui, Anda Human Resource Manager Irma Catabay, Pastor Luisito Invension and Lyn Rai Celino in awarding the certificates of completion to the 22 graduates at the Anda Municipal Gymnasium.
The mobile skills training truck is set to visit the towns of Alcala, Bautista and Villasis this month of March. (PIO/SMDG)
