Confident after surviving the rigid training for more than one month, Rural Impact Sourcing (RIS) scholars formally gathered at Emiliana Hall for their graduation hosted by the City Education and Excellence Development Office (CEEDO) on September 28.
More than a month ago (August 8, 2017), twenty (20) scholars passed a rigorous selection process to train for digital marketing which they could use to apply for online jobs. Today marks the result of time spent to learn and upgrade their knowledge about online technologies.
Under the Rural Impact Sourcing (RIS) program of the City of Balanga, these scholars passed standards set by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and the Bataan Information and Communications Technology Development Council (BICTDC). CEEDO assisted DICT in the selection process.
In his message, Mayor Francis Anthony S. Garcia said, “We are all happy to be here after the rigid training. This is not the end, but just the start of the program. The content that was taught and learned was very useful. The City Government is very enthusiastic to bring in new technologies to ensure that no one will be left behind in connection with the new trends. With the help of tech job providers, availability of jobs in our city will continue, and opportunity will always be given, especially to new graduates of the city.” By: Cyrus Dela Cruz
