BALANGA CITY, Bataan – The technical training of 20 rigidly selected Bataan scholars by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) is in sync with the vision of Balanga city government.
“The Rural Impact Sourcing DICT training of 20 scholars is in line with the vision of Balanga to become a world-class university town by 2020”, said Councilor Jovic Baluyot in his closing message during the opening ceremony of the technical training at Emiliana Hall, this city, on Tuesday.
“Mayor Francis Garcia is continuing the vision”, the councilor said. The vision was originally adopted by the mayor’s predecessor now 2nd district Congressman Joet Garcia.
“To the chosen scholars, take advantage of the opportunity”, he advised.
For his part, Garcia said the technical training will create digital talent among scholars.
“This batch of scholars will hopefully become ambassadors of the succeeding trainings”, he said.
Although the training is a program of DICT and Balanga City, the scholars came not only from this city but from the province.
“We want to produce confident and competitive freelance ICT digital workers”, said Cheryl Ortega, DICT Luzon Cluster 2 Director.
She lauded the ICT development of the city.
The scholars will undergo 10 days of training for 10 modules on branding company products, web development, product photography, and other ICT topics.
Twenty local micro small medium enterprises are also tapped to become partners in the training.
