SM tech-voc scholars get certified by TESDA

Congratulations to our newly-certified tech-voc scholars!

Twenty-four SM tech-voc scholars from Nasugbu, Batangas have been certified by Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for their tech-voc specialization.

The scholars from four barangays in Nasugbu -- Barangays Bulihan, Calayo, Looc, and Papaya – underwent a five-day intensive skills training at the SM Foundation Skills Training Center in Sitio Pingkian, Brgy. Looc. Upon finishing the training, the scholars were evaluated and assessed by TESDA for National Certificate (NC) II in their tech-voc specialization. All scholars who took the assessment passed.

The hands-on training in metal arc welding; refrigeration and air-conditioning; and electrical installation and maintenance was conducted by Don Bosco Technical Vocational Education and Training Center (TVET) trainors. SM Foundation grants tech-voc and college scholarships to deserving but underprivileged youth to help them have more opportunities for employment and achieve their dreams to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
