Supervisors, technicians trained on PCOS machine operation

by Peter Balocnit

Tabuk City, Kalinga (6 February) -- Smartmatic-TIM trained supervisors and technicians at the Laoagan Inn and Resort here who shall supervise the operations of the Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines.

Two provincial and one municipal supervisor from each of the towns were trained on the Consolidated Canvassing System. Supervisors in the precinct level were also taught on how to manipulate the PCOS machine.

Applicants are screened from each batch of trainees to be assigned to voter centers of about 10 per clustered precincts.

According to Giovani Marco Buslig, Smartmatic-TIM Provincial coordinator, the training will go on for one month until early March for precinct technicians who will be guarding the machines until the transmission of results.

He said his company and Comelec will hold a demonstration on how the machine works on February 14 to be held at a public place for public viewing. The PCOS machines used during the past week training were working well.

Buslig said problems related to the machine that may arise on the day of election, like absence or poor signal, no power or brown out are anticipated. "Everything is considered, answers to these problems are in place including security of personnel and the machines", he assured.

Buslig said Smartmatic-TIM established a provincial base coordinating center here to ensure that all activities are flowing until election day and after. The Cordillera region is divided into 3 areas where the provinces of Kalinga and Ifugao comprised CAR-3.

Meanwhile, Provincial Election Supervisor Atty. Thomas Uyam said teachers who are members of the Board of Election Inspectors will have their training in March. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
