Manila, Philippines – Nine-hundred fifty residents will graduate from various vocational and technical courses from the Las Piñas City Manpower and Training Center on July 5 at the Verdant Covered Court in Barangay Pamplona Tres, Las Piñas.
Las Piñas Mayor Nene Aguilar said the free training on various courses is aimed at helping residents find gainful employment or start their own home-based or backyard business to augment their family’s meager income.
The Manpower Training Center offers automotive servicing, commercial cooking, consumer electronics, food and beverages services, hairdressing, massage therapy, personal computer operations, refrigeration and aircon servicing, shielded metal arc welding, industrial electricity, cellphone repair, housekeeping, and travel services.
Five-thousand out-of-school youths and unemployed adults benefit from free training provided by the training center awarded by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) as one of the Most Outstanding Skills Training Center in the country.
Aguilar said graduates of the center have the opportunity to apply for work abroad, citing bigger demand for skilled workers abroad.
He said many industries are already on the lookout and offering employment to graduates with special technical vocational skills.
