TAGBILARAN CITY, Sept 10, (PIA)--A foreign shipbuilding company operating in Subic is in need of 2000 welders, for immediate deployment to Luzon. 

Technical Educations and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Secretary general Joel Villanueva relayed this during a press conference in his latest Bohol visit. 

Speaking before a modest gathering of Bohol media at the Dagohoy Hall of the Bohol Tropics, Villanueva, who was flanked by TESDA regional Director Rosanna Urdaneta and Provincial Administrator Alfonso Damalerio III during the press conference, said immediately needed by Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction are shielded metal arc welders (SMAW) trained workers with the TESDA certifications. 

Hanjin, a Korean firm into heavy industries and construction operates a shipbuilding facility in Subic. 
"They won't need anything more, just as long as you have TESDA certifications, then they are looking for you," Villanueva, who was also explaining how the public private partnership is helping the government technical and vocational training authority has achieved over 70% employment rate or their trained blue collar workers. 

Hanjin, notes the former Benjamin of the House being the youngest congressman in his term, is among the 600 companies that TESDA is partnering to absorb TESDA trained graduates into their workforce. 

TESDA has assured that their trained graduates are at par with the world's best. 

Recently, the skills training authority has recently been awarded the International Standards Organization (ISO) 9001. 

ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized quality management standard which specifies Quality Management System (QMS) requirements focused on an organization's ability to meet and improve upon customer satisfaction and quality requirements.

TESDA enrolled two major programs for certification then: Technical Vocational Education and Training Program Registration and Competency Assessment and Certification.

These programs are processes that ensure integrity and quality of training delivery and training outputs involving all its courses.

The ISO certification makes TESDA at par with other international educational institutions providing the same skills development services.

In short, A TESDA 9001 QMS means all of TESDA graduates are so trained that they can sit at par with the skills obtained by world's blue collar workers. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
