PANGASINAN Provincial Employment and Services Office (PESO) Manager Alex Ferrer bared that the provincial government is planning to include additional courses in the Mobile Skills Training Project (MSTP) such as scaffolding and painting courses.
The MSTP is a flagship program of Governor Amado I. Espino III which aims to bring skills trainings in the different parts of the province and provide better job opportunities to Pangasinenses.
In addition, the program teaches theoretical and practical skills in basic carpentry, electrical installation, plumbing, masonry, tile setting, haircutting, beauty care, cookery, and wellness massage.
“Ang objective namin ay maabot lahat ng bayan ng Pangasinan at kapag may pagkakataon pa, maaaring umulit ang mga LGUs pero ibang kurso na para mas maging multi-skilled pa ang mga magagaling at masisipag na magsanay,” Ferrer said during the MSTP graduation ceremony held in San Fabian on November 25.
A total of 44 trainees earned their certificates on basic electrical installation and basic carpentry after the 15-day training provided by the provincial government.
“Alam naman natin na ang carpentry, alam kaagad na pang-lalaki siya pero doon ko napatunayan na kaya din naman ng mga babae,” said Carissa Supsupin stressing that the skills she learned during the training will help her in her daily life.
PESO Manager Alex Ferrer also encouraged the graduates to further develop their skills to become more productive.
“Kung may nalaman kayong skills, dagdagan niyo pa ‘yan. Dapat multi-skilled kayo para maging contractors kayo in the future. Huwag kayong makontento sa iisang skills,” said Ferrer as he assured that PESO will provide more trainings in San Fabian.
Ferrer also said that the provincial government will release an ordinance that will require all employers in San Fabian to prioritize the locals.
Christian Carriedo, a MSTP graduate of basic electrical installing, commended the provincial government in bringing the training project in San Fabian.
“Magiging gateway ang MSTP para sa bayan ng San Fabian, lalo na sa aming mga graduates, para magkaroon ng panibagong opportunity sa buhay namin,” said Carriedo.
The graduates will also receive P2,000-financial assistance from the provincial government that will help them start their own business./Paula Jhea Sison
