JIB Academy to promote welding profession

by Prix D Banzon

Davao City (4 September) -- Changing people's attitude against welding works is the concern of JIB Welders Academy as properly trained workers could get high pay here and abroad.

Joji Iligan Bian head of the JIB Welders Academy during the launching of the school on Saturday said there is big demand of work especially abroad.

Welding she said is downplayed the way people perceived welding even as she said that this a very lucrative career.

The academy is offering a competency-base curriculum and offers two courses, the Welding (SMAW) NC II and the Shielded Metal ARC Welding.

It has employed well trained and competent teachers with its consultant Alan Le Gale, Technical Consultant for Overseas Competencies.

Gale is an experienced mechanical engineer in England later moving to New Zealand where he undertook teacher training. His experience in Queensland, Australia includes a 23-year experience in delivering both college-based and workplace-based training design to teach job-requirements and industry skills to new workers and apprentices and improve the abilities of exiting employees.

Gale said they would add value to the school because with value adding to the product there will be more return of investments.

Other than that Gale said they will help build confidence of students even as he said that their direction is towards excellence the Philippines being a producer of human resource that also finds employment abroad.

Bian meanwhile said prior to the opening of the academy in October, they already had reservations of 70 students saying this is a good sign that Dabawenyos are looking at vocational skills as the now direction for employment.

Welding she said is no ordinary job and welders have high demand also in manufacturing companies here.

She said what the student will experience in their school is a world class learning and will make them international welders where their skills could compete with other welders in the world. (PIA XI) [top]
