In celebration of the tourism month this September, the Provincial Tourism & Cultural Affairs Office (PTCAO) joined forces with PESO and TESDA in bringing MSTP to Alaminos City as well as in Urdaneta City at the same time. Anchored to the theme, “Tourism and Jobs: A Better Future for All,” this partnership intends to provide more jobs for Pangasinenses and also to promote tourism.
“Oportunidad po ito upang magkaroon ng posibleng pandagdag kabuhayan natin,” Provincial Tourism and Cultural Affairs Officer Ma. Luisa Elduayan said.
The MSTP in Alaminos focuses on the Basic Wellness Massage that will help the participants learn the fundamentals of body massage.
City Tourism Officer Miguel Sison highlighted that the increasing number of tourists in the city also heightened the need for masseurs in hotels and transients in Alaminos City.
Sison stated, “This will be a good activity for the enhancement of our potentials and abilities. With the influx of tourists in Alaminos City, madaming naghahanap ng mga marunong sa massage. Later on, you can give your names and contact numbers to us so we could call you.”
Elduayan also discussed that everyone can benefit from tourism.
“Ang turismo ay para sa lahat. Ibig sabihin, nadagdagan na naman ang ating mga partners sa turismo para mas mapa-unlad pa ang progreso ng ating lungsod at ng buong Pangasinan,” said Elduayan.
Aside from the training, values enhancement seminar and basic occupational safety were also offered to the participants.
With around 30 participants, the training will continue until September 19 and conclude with a simple graduation ceremony where the participants will receive certificates and training kits that will help them in starting their own business. /Paula Jhea Sison
