Davao Light and Power Co. trained residents of Brgy. Maa through its Project Basic Electrician Skills Training (Project B.E.S.T.) from Feb. 6 through Feb. 26.
Project B.E.S.T. is a community-based skills training program, which is being implemented by Davao Light in partnership with Aboitiz Foundation Inc. and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority or TESDA-Sur/Davao City with support from JCI Central Davao. Those who finished the course and passed the assessment were given a Certificate of Competency or National Certificate II.
The beneficiaries are mostly out-of-school-youths, barangay workers and community residents who are interested to become electricians.
“Project B.E.S.T. will help the beneficiaries learn a skill which can help them work as an electrician and earn additional income.”
–Fermin Edillon, Community Relations Manager, Davao Light.
Project B.E.S.T. will continue to reach out to more communities, creating more electricians especially in the far flung areas.
