Region 8 Director Juan M. Sabulao, Jr. informed that an Open House
will be conducted at the
on August 4 in order to showcase the various skills acquired by the
Director Sabulao said
that a Motorcade will be conducted at 8:30 in the morning and a
Program will be conducted at
10:30 in the morning. At
11:00 o’clock, Skills
Demonstrations will be presented by the Center Scholars.
Director Sabulao said
that Isuzu has invited all the top officials of the Isuzu Dealership
and Service Centers across the country and all the service center or
shop owners all over Region 8 so that they will see the high quality
of training the scholars have undergone and the excellent services
these scholars could provide to their customers.
There are already four
batches of scholars in the Center, Director Sabulao disclosed. After
training, the first batch of scholars will have to undergo on the job
training (OJT) and TESDA are hoping that the businessmen guests will
be able to take in the scholars in their shops.
The scholars will
undergo OJT for two to four months, Director Sabulao said. During the
OJT, the scholars will be receiving allowance from the employers.
The good Director
added that TESDA is hoping that the companies will later sing in the
scholars for employment. He said that 99% of the automobile shops in
the Region or in Tacloban do not have capabilities to repair the new
automatic models of vehicles.
If the scholars are
employed by the shops here, the services of the local shops will be
upgraded, thus, helping upgrade the quality of service being offered
in the Region.
The scholars, he said
have been trained to do this and so they will surely find employment
locally or abroad.
scholars need all the focus in the world. They need to hurdle all the
national certification levels from I to IV within a two-year perion
order to pass the course. At present, the scholars are almost done
with NC1, which tackles automotive servicing. Among the basic modules
included in the NC1 curriculum are workplace communication, teamwork,
work values, and housekeeping procedures.

meanwhile, consists of such lessons as applying sealant and adhesive;
moving and positioning a vehicle; performing mensuration and
calculation; interpreting and applying specifications and manual;
using lubricants and coolants; performing shop maintenance; tuning up
diesel and gasoline engines; servicing automotive batteries; servicing
ignition systems; testing and repairing wiring and lighting systems;
and performing underchassis maintenance.
the NC1 modules, the scholars are to undergo a competency assessment
to determine who among them are qualified for an NC1 certificate,
which is duly recognized by government and private agencies.
