LINGAYEN, Pangasinan—The provincial government is set to purchase another unit of customized training truck for the implementation of the Mobile Skills Training project (MSTP) in Pangasinan.


In the regular session held January 22, the provincial board led by Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim, Jr. approved Provincial Resolution No. 1360-2018 which authorized the provincial government to provide another unit in addition to the truck which was bought last year. The resolution was authored by Board Members Angel Baniqued, Jr. and Generoso Tulagan, Jr.


It can be recalled that no-less than Governor Amado I. Espino III spearheaded the launching of the first-of-its-kind project in the region in September 2017 to intensify manpower development and ensure availability of skilled workers who are prepared to be hired locally and abroad.


Mounted in a truck, the MSTP debuted in Bugallon and Sison towns and has produced a total of 95 graduates in electrical and carpentry courses.


As disclosed by Provincial Employment and Services Officer Alex F. Ferrer, the mobile training truck will stay in an identified site for 22 days. Hence, the purchase of an additional unit will benefit more Pangasinenses in the grassroots, the main target of the provincial government to undergo such trainings.


The resolution pointed out that “the project is in line with the Manpower and Entrepreneurship Development Programs of the Province to prepare the trainees for potential employment that are locally needed and for global competitiveness.”


In partnership with TESDA Pangasinan and Provincial Liga ng mga Barangay, the community-based program is considered as a big boost to the province’s skills and employment thrust.


The provincial government through the PESO will then facilitate employment of graduates and/or assists in providing livelihood engagements.


Meanwhile, the PESO chief stated that the towns of Calasiao and Manaoag were earlier identified as sites for the next MSTP. (Ruby R. Bernardino)
