Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories - BY TERESA D. ELLERA

FIFTH District Rep. Mar­ilou Ar­royo led the Train­ing In­duc­tion Pro­gram for Bread and Pas­try NCII in Is­abela, in part­ner­ship with the Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Skills De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (TESDA) on Au­gust 24.

The pro­gram was at­tended by the 30 ben­e­fi­cia­ries from the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Is­abela. They were ori­ented by TESDA and VMA Global Col­lege and Train­ing Cen­ters, Inc. about the train­ing pro­gram, its ben­e­fits, and their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as ben­e­fi­cia­ries.

Dur­ing the event, Ar­royo her­self joined the ben­e­fi­cia­ries in bread mak­ing, and other ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Bread and Pas­try NCII course aims to de­velop the skills of stu­dents in pre­par­ing and pro­duc­ing bak­ery and pas­try prod­ucts such as cakes and desserts. Un­der the mo­d­ule, the stu­dents are also taught dif­fer­ent pre­sen­ta­tion meth­ods, san­i­ta­tion, and safety.

Mean­while, Ar­royo also par­tic­i­pated dur­ing the Train­ing In­duc­tion Pro­gram for Masonry NCII, at­tended by the 22 ben­e­fi­cia­ries from the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Hini­garan on Au­gust 23.

This pro­gram aims to hone the skills of stu­dents in per­form­ing con­struc­tion of brick and con­crete block struc­tures, in­stal­la­tion of pre-cast balus­ter/handrail and plas­ter­ing of con­crete wall sur­face.

Six more train­ing pro­grams await the 5th District of Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal. The pro­grams will be­gin af­ter the com­ple­tion of the list of ben­e­fi­cia­ries be­ing pre­pared by the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Units (LGU) and TESDA.

The ben­e­fi­cia­ries will start their train­ing be­fore the end of the year for the pro­grams of As­sem­ble Elec­tron­ics Prod­ucts lead­ing to EPAS NCII, Shielded Metal Arc Weld­ing (SMAW) NCI, Au­to­mo­tive Ser­vic­ing NCI, Cook­ery NCII, Hilot (Well­ness Mas­sage) NCII, and Car­pen­try NCII.

Ar­royo stressed the im­por­tance of the pro­grams in pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and skills im­por­tant for em­ploy­ment.

“These train­ing pro­grams pro­vided by TESDA are es­sen­tial to the ben­e­fi­cia­ries in mak­ing them com­pet­i­tive in the re­spec­tive ar­eas. They can use the skills that they learned and de­vel­oped in find­ing jobs, or even man­ag­ing their own busi­nesses,” Ar­royo ended.*
