THE TECHNICAL Education and Skills Development Authority and motorcycle ride-hailing company Angkas provided training to 44 riders on basic motorcycle driving.

TESDA and Angkas launched a five-day Basic Motorcycle Driving Program last April 6 to provide formal training to motorcycle riders and to professionalize motorcycle training in the Philippines.

The 44 trainees were among the 235 scholars trained by the Regional Training Center-National Capital Region who graduated last June 6.

TESDA Secretary General Isidro Lapeña congratulated the graduates and emphasized that the training provided by the agency will open a lot of opportunities to them.

“You will be able to help your families and eventually, you can also help the nation to recover from the pandemic as you all become productive,” he said.

Also recognized during the ceremony were the 13 trainers of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning in the National Capital Region, Cordillera Administrative Region and Regions IV-A, IX, and XI who participated in the 11-day Daikin Training of Trainers Program.

The training is part of the Memorandum of Agreement signed by TESDA and Daikin Philippines last July 2021 which aims to upskill the whole Philippine air conditioning industry.

“I hope that the knowledge you gained from this training will be your standard to efficiently and effectively perform your duties and responsibilities. We know that through this training you will be able to help upgrade the skills of our kababayans in the HVAC sector in your respective regions,” the TESDA chief said.
