Daoaten urged them to help the agency in pro­duc­ing more glob­ally com­pet­i­tive skilled work­ers.

“To our as­ses­sors, on the other hand, we can­not com­pro­mise the in­tegrity of the na­tional cer­tifi­cate,” he said, ad­ding that “we are the sole keeper of the stan­dards that we are talk­ing.”

On the sec­ond day, an­other fo­rum was con­ducted to ad­dress the is­sues and con­cerns of the dif­fer­ent Assess­ment Cen­ters in the prov­ince.

It was at­tended by the assess­ment cen­ter man­agers and their staff.
