TESDA Iligan pushes for PGMA-Training for Work Scholarship Program

Iligan City (3 February) -- The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Regional Training Center (TESDA-RTC) in Maria Cristina, Iligan City, has redefined and enhanced the implementation of the Pangulong Gloria Scholarship or PGMA-Training for Work Scholarship Program so it can fuel the training market.

Lamberto B. Jos, RTC administrator, said they encourage high school graduates to avail the Free Skills Training under the Pangulong Gloria Scholarship Program.

He explained that this program would assist the poor and deserving Filipinos to enroll in job-directed training programs and earn the corresponding qualification that will enhance their employability, without cost to the scholar.

"Its main focus is to reduce unemployment and underemployment," Jos added.

"We already have 143 scholars for the first batch and started their training last January 19, 2009, said Jos. The training package includes the training cost, institutional incentive package, training allowance and assessment fees.

The TESDA-RTC offers the following courses: Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Automotive Servicing, Consumer Electronics Servicing, Computer Hardware Servicing, Building Wiring Installation, Refrigeration and Airconditioning Servicing.

Availment of scholarship is on first come, first serve basis.

Other requirements for interested applicants shall be at least 18 years old, with birth certificate preferably issued by the National Statistics Office, and should be physically and mentally fit. (lvg / PIA Iligan) [top]
