TACLOBAN CITY (CIO) — Fifty-four trainees of the Information Communications Technology Sharing of Computer Access Locally and Abroad (ICT-SCALA) program of the City Government under Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez graduated on Friday, September 20 at the Tacloban City Training Center, after undergoing a six month Basic Computer Training. The group which started training last March represented the 41st Batch of the priority program of the Local Government Unit.
The free training spearheaded by the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) teaches basic computer programs such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and PowerPoint, among others.
Out of School Youth (OSYs), Persons with Disabilities (PWDs), working parents in need of basic computer training are the target of the program.
The Training is divided into three shifts: morning, afternoon and night classes and lasts for 3 to 4 months followed by an On-the-Job Training of two months.
As part of their OJT, the trainees are deployed to the different offices of the City Government for office works like computer encoding and other clerical works. Upon graduation, they are given Certificates of Completion.
