He also lauded the PLRMO/PSTC which is being run by the City Government for its steadfast commitment “to produce thousands of quality graduates whose skills are comparable if not better than the graduates from other trade schools in other parts of the country”.

Among the tech-voc courses taken by a total 1,028 graduates were dressmaking, electrical installation and maintenance and hairdressing.

Other graduates took beauty care, food and beverage basic reflexology, soap making, pinoy hilot (chiropractic) wellness and meat processing courses.

Various kinds of training which were categorized either as center- based, satellite/mobile-based and area-based were held in different barangays and on different numbers of training days and periods.

Mayor Olivarez cited the importance of technical education and skills development in producing world class workers who can compete with the best skilled workers in the world.

He then urged the graduates to go out and use their acquired skills to make their lives better and also build a niche in their respective fields of expertise.
