Ten Negrense scholars completed their two-year Electro-mechanics Technology course and were among the 80 students, who graduated at Dualtech Training Center in Canlubang, Calamba City, Laguna, Nov. 27.

The Electro-mechanics Technology course is a dual technology training program where students undergo a six-month classroom-based instruction and 18 months in-plant training in various manufacturing and service companies in Luzon.

The program aims to help male high school graduates 18 to 22 years old, who are single, non-smokers, and whose parents do not have the resources to fund their college education.

The graduates are Angelo Belo and Gabril Navales of Cadiz City; Radin Celeste Jr., Mark Joseph Sudayan, and Joren Pido of Victorias City; Jerson Pillones, Choniel Palasuelo, and Loisel Del Rosario from Sipalay City; Ronalde Dumdum OF Sagay City, and Nielmar Calipayan from La Carlota City.

Belo received the Outstanding in Basic Stage Training Program (BSTP) and Merit awards, Pillones, Palasuelo, and Navales got the Merit and Best in In-plant awards, while Celeste and Del Rosario each got a Merit award.

The 10 Negrense scholars, who completed their Electro-mechanics Technology course and were among the 80 students, who graduated at Dualtech Training Center in Canlubang, Calamba City, Laguna, Nov. 27.

Most of the graduates were absorbed by their respective companies even before their graduation.

Belo, who was chosen from among the 80 graduates to deliver the ‘Pasalamat Speech’, said that the Dualtech Training Center brought out the best in him because he was honed to be a better person, not just his skills in electrical, mechanical, electronics, and drafting but his attitude towards his family, friends, colleagues, instructors, and supervisors.

He expressed his gratitude to Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson for continuing this program, and thanked the late former Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. for trusting him to be part of the first batch to represent Negros Occidental, a press release from the Capitol said.

Lacson, who was the keynote speaker during the commencement exercises, congratulated in a pre-recorded video the graduates for overcoming the challenges.

“Your class has the distinction of graduating during a global health pandemic, a task not easily surmountable, and yet every one of you stepped up and emerged successful, with this day as a testament.

“Today, we are celebrating you, how you have developed, how you were able to overcome your challenges and how you have grown during your time in Dualtech. Always remember that life is a mixture of success and defeat. Success is easy to handle, use it to encourage yourself and others, failure on the other hand is difficult, use your challenges as lessons, as means to get better. Do well in your chosen field.”

The province of Negros Occidental continues to collaborate with the Dualtech Training Center and Buglas Foundation Inc. for this program, through the Negros Occidental Scholarship Program Division-Office of the Governor. | NND
