381 completes skills training in Urdaneta
by Virgilio Sar. Maganes

URDANETA CITY- Some 381 trainees of various technical skills graduated from the Urdaneta City Livelihood Skills Training Center (UCLSTC) during its 12th commencement exercises last November 15.

Mayor Amadeo Gregorio “Bobom” Perez IV lauded the staff of the UCLSTC and the officers of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) on their relentless efforts in imparting the various skills to the graduates.

“We have now graduates from the center that were able to land good jobs both in the country and overseas. Your city officials will always be here to back up the skills needs of our citymates and rest assured that this kind of endeavor will always be on top of our priority programs,” Mayor Perez said.

In his welcome address, Vice Mayor Onofre “Bong” Gorospe congratulated the graduates and urged them to hone their skills for their future.

He said that skilled workers are in demand in the labor market not only in the country but also in other countries.

George L. Lutab, a ship electrician/aircon technician of Vestland Maritime Corporation was the guest speaker and underscored the importance of skills training and the opportunities they open for job placement.

” I am also a product of skills training of Tesda. When I completed the courses I took, I honed them by accepting services at home until I landed a job at the Vestland Maritime Corporation. I am inspired of seeing you today accepting your certificates of completion. But your journey will start here. Don’t stop dreaming of bigger things,” Lutab told the graduates.

Erwin S. Mateo, a proficiency awardee on cellular phone servicing, said the skills development program of the city government is of great help to unemployed persons like him.

“Dahil sa hirap ng buhay, hindi ako makapag-aral sa pormal na edukasyon kaya malaking tulong ito sa akin at sa mga iba pa para naman umunlad ang aming kaalaman at kabuhayan,” Mateo said.

Wilfredo F. Quiming Jr., also a proficiency awardee in welding and metal fabrication course, has all praises to the staff of the UCLSTC and their trainers for their unending support to their needs during the duration of the training. He expressed his thanks to the city officials for embarking the skills development program which he likened to an opened door and windows for their future.

Gracing the graduation ceremonies were Dr. Ma. Celia Juni-Fernandez, City Schools Superintendent, TESDA Provincial Director Manuel V. Wong and Alex Ferrer, PESO Manager of Pangasinan.

The following skills program were offered for the 12th batch of trainees with number of graduates: automotive mechanic course (36 trainees),baking/pastry making (48 trainees), cellular phone servicing (42 trainees), consumer electronics servicing (49 trainees), hairdressing and beauty care (34 trainees), dressmaking course ( 20 trainees), food processing (39 trainees), reflexology (41 trainees), refrigeration and airconditioning technician (32 trainees) and welding and metal fabrication ( 40 trainees).

The UCLSTC was opened in 2008 by then City Mayor Amadeo R. Perez, Jr. with a mission to strengthen and sustain livelihood skills training programs to address the needs of the constituents of the city.
