Daet, Camarines Norte -- In its aim of matching the skills of our workers with the standards and competency for middle-level manpower, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) integrates the promotion of skills development in the implementation of the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program in partnership with the Technical Skills Development Authority (TESDA) through the conduct of Community-based Skills Training Programs.

At the onset of its initial implementation, at least thirty-nine (39) beneficiaries from Barangay Del Rosario, Mercedes, Camarines Norte have completed the training on Carpentry and Welding, each for a period of ten (10) days and fifteen (15) days, respectively in the first quarter of the year.

Aside from skills training, the trainees were at the same time recipients of package of power tools and equipment for their proposed livelihood projects on welding, carpentry and electrical servicing under the Kabuhayan Starter Kit Project of the Department of Labor and Employment.

Accordingly, this shall continue up to the conduct of skills assessment to qualify for National Certificate and becomes an NC holder/passer.

The same skills training on Welding, Carpentry and Electrical Servicing for the sixteen (16) trainee-beneficiaries has begun last January 15 and finished in February 2021 at Barangay Macogon, Labo, Camarines Norte.

About eighty-five (85) beneficiaries from the seven (7) remaining barangays to include Barangay Cabatuhan, Exciban, Submakin in the municipality of Labo, Napilihan, Aguit-it and Sabang in Vinzons and Barangay Sta. Elena, Talisay will be provided with skills training from TESDA prior to the livelihood assistance they may receive from DOLE.

As a pre-condition prior to the availment of the project, the DOLE Regional Office V has required our applicant-beneficiaries to submit their certificate of training or preferably National Certificate issued by the Technical Skills Development Authority (TESDA) or other Accredited Technical Vocational Skills as proof of their acquired skills and competencies in the field of construction building and finishing.###
