MANILA – The next administration is asked to develop and extend microbusiness training in order…
International collaboration to improve railroad training
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) pledged on Monday to support the growth of the railroad industry by forming alliances with nations that have “established and renowned” rail networks.
DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista said they will concentrate on training and human resource development and employ foreign alliances to revitalize the industry in his statement for the Philippine Railways Institute’s third anniversary.
In order to meet the demands of the riding public, we must continue to be devoted to growing the railway industry and providing convenient, secure, and dependable transport services, according to Bautista.
In support of his claim, he referenced the Japanese government’s participation in the PRI Technical Assistance program, which enables the “effective transfer” of Japanese technical know-how to the nation’s railway workers via the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
He claimed that Japan provided the nation’s cutting-edge trains and desktop simulators, which include training for operators.
In addition to the DOTr railway projects, he said, “the train simulators offer new technologies to teach, instruct, and train future train operators in the country.”
Since its founding in 2019, the PRI has taught 2,464 people, with 904 learners finishing their programs in 2022.
The PRI, a DOTr-affiliated organization, is the nation’s only research and training facility devoted to the improvement of the railway industry’s human resources.
