TESDA AT NGCP MAGTUTULONG PARA PALAKASIN ANG LINEMAN TRAINING

Magtutulong ang Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) at National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) upang palakasin ang kalidad ng skills training ng mga transmission line workers.

Base sa nilagdaang Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) nina TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong at NGCP President Henry Sy, Jr. noong nakalipas na Marso 20, nagkasundo ang dalawang grupo na muling pag-aralan ang pagandahin ang Training Regulations (TRs) at Competency Assessment Tools para sa Transmission Line Installation and Maintenance.

Sa kanyang naging mensahe, nagpasalamat si Mamondiong sa NGCP dahil aniya, napakahalaga ng gagawing pagtaas ng kalidad ng Training Regulations dahil isa itong paraan upang makapagsanay at makalikha ng magagaling na manggagawa sa bansa.

“A qualification’s TR is a policy in itself. It is the basis for quality assurance of technical vocational education and training institutions in their program registration, and assessment and certification of Filipino workers. The same TRs are being used to benchmark and compare the qualifications of our Filipino workers with that of other countries,” sabi pa ni Mamondiong.

Ayon naman kay Mr. Sy, naaayon ang agreement na ito sa national development ng bansa. “When power lines go down, it is the linesmen who go out, up the mountains and across the rivers just to bring the electricity back to thousands of households and industries. While the maintenance of power lines lies in their hands, it is our responsibility to empower these everyday heroes”.

Nakasaad sa MOA na kinakailangang muling pag-aralan ang kasalukuyang Training Regulations at Competency Assessment Tools ng Transmission Line and Installation Maintenance upang maging tugma sa kuwalipikasyon ng NC II at NC III (National Certificate).

Bukod kay Mamondiong at Sy, kabilang din sa dumalo sa MOA signing sina TESDA Executive Director Imee Taganas at NGCP Chief Administrative Officer Anthony Almeda na kapwa nagsilbing saksi sa kasunduan. ###

TESDA-NGCP SETS BENCHMARK ON LINEMEN PROFESSION

With the aim of taking the skills of power line workers to the next level as well as to further promote employment and propel the country’s economic growth, TESDA has found an ally in the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP).

In a Memorandum of Agreement signed between TESDA Director General Secretary Guiling “Gene” A. Mamondiong and NGCP President Henry Sy, Jr. last March 20 in Quezon City, the tech-voc Authority and the private corporation responsible for the country’s power transmission network, both vowed to “develop and review the Training Regulations (TRs) and Competency Assessment Tools for Transmission Line Installation and Maintenance”.

In his message, Secretary Mamondiong expressed his gratitude to NGCP on behalf of TESDA and explained how the upgrading of the Training Regulations directly influenced the quality of workers the country will be producing.

“A qualification’s TR is a policy in itself. It is the basis for quality assurance of technical vocational education and training institutions in their program registration, and assessment and certification of Filipino workers. The same TRs are being used to benchmark and compare the qualifications of our Filipino workers with that of other countries,” said the Secretary.

Mr. Sy, on the other hand, shared his views on the importance of the agreement to national development, “When power lines go down, it is the linesmen who go out, up the mountains and across the rivers just to bring the electricity back to thousands of households and industries. While the maintenance of power lines lies in their hands, it is our responsibility to empower these everyday heroes.”

Primarily, the agreement seeks to review and upgrade the existing TRs and Competency Assessment tools of the Transmission Line and Installation and Maintenance NCII and NCIII qualifications.

Also present during the event were TESDA Executive Director Imee B. Taganas and NGCP Chief Administrative Officer Anthony L. Almeda who both acted as witnesses of the deal. ###
