MANILA — Students in Mindanao may choose not to pursue technical vocational courses in Manila as the government plans to open an P8 million worth of training center in Misamis Oriental.

Located at the eastern town of Libertad, the two-hour drive facility from Cagayan de Oro City will also benefit residents outside the municipality, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) said.

Courses such as electrical installation and maintenance, construction painting, masonry, heavy equipment servicing, carpentry and scaffold erection will soon be offered there.

“It’s 90 percent complete already although we still don’t know the exact operation date,” Tesda media officer Roselyn Salagan told Sun.Star.

Last year, the bulk of the P40 million allotted for scholarships in Northern Mindanao went to Misamis Oriental and Cagayan de Oro City alone. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
