Iloilo City’s skills training program has been restarted.

CITY OF ILOILO – Around 160 individuals have received varied skills training when the local government reopened its free livelihood and skills training program at the Technical Institute of Iloilo City (TIIC), which was momentarily halted two years ago during the height of the pandemic.

In an interview on Wednesday, TIIC Molo campus head Maria Mathilde Treas said the trainees have access to eight training programs, including basic welding and fabrication, reflexology training (massage), housekeeping services, computer literacy, cosmetology training, culinary arts, basic bar management, and food service, and basic emergency response.

The training classes resumed on February 28th, and some of the spots are already full, so she is considering adding another class to accommodate individuals who are interested.

TIIC stopped offering the programs in March 2020, after they had started in 2014.

“The training programs are incredibly important because people may discover methods to earn an income if they learn skills,” Treas added.

They will be required to complete on-the-job training after the course (OJT).

As part of the city hall’s National Women’s Month celebration on March 29, reflexology and cosmetology students will be asked to provide free services to women and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other (LGBTQ+) personnel.

Some of their trainees were hired by the hotels prior to the health pandemic, according to Treas.

“Although this is only a training, the content is similar to that of TESDA” (Technical Education, Skills and Development Authority). “After they complete their course, we will assist them in obtaining an NC, or National Certificate II,” she stated.

Each program has a different training timeline, however, reflexology is the shortest at 15 days, and basic bar management and food service are the longest at two months.

The city’s Public Employment and Services Offices (PESO), according to Treas, has expressed interest in collaborating with the TIIC.

“They complement each other because they are employed and we are in training,” she explained, adding that she is considering seeking starter kits for the trainees after the training program is over.
