50 soldiers graduated with TESDA assistance

LAGANGILANG, Abra, August 6, 2011-The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) assisted the troops of at least 50 soldiers to include CAFGUs who graduated in the recent hands-on training for almost two months on carpentry and masonry taking advantage of the building construction held inside the headquarters of 503rd Infantry Brigade (IB), Philippine Army in this town.

Army Captain Edward L Sia-ed, 503rd IB spokesman said that a group of experts from TESDA-Abra and from the Army Engineering Battalion deployed in Abra acted as instructors of the training, saying that the objective of the training was to enhance the skills of soldiers on carpentry and masonry.

“This training is under the Armed Forces of the Philippines OPLAN “Bayanihan” programs being implemented by the soldiers for the development of the troops in community development works. Soldiers are engaged in civic action programs by helping communities build infrastructure projects rather than combat operations in the far flung areas most of the time,” Sia-ed said.

Mr. Eddie R. Dulnuan, the TESDA-Abra officer in charge said that the soldiers are practically multi-skilled due to the requirements of the service, recalled his younger days as an ROTC Officer that he appreciated much the military trainings that he underwent that also helped mold his character.

Colonel Eliseo C Posadas, the Commander of 503rd Bde, expressed his gratitude to Mr Dunuan and his team for their invaluable services to the unit and personnel.

“Through Bayanihan like the joint partnership with TESDA officials can bring more services for our constituents,” Posadas said where he encouraged the soldiers to harness their skills by applying what they have learned and give back to the people by helping them through Bayanihan.

Earlier, a simple graduation ceremony was formally held last Tuesday morning at the said camp as part of their culmination activity. (Jason de Asis)
