The Public Employment Service Office (PESO) in coordination with the Technical Education & Skills Development Authority (TESDA) held a culmination program for the first batch of scholars at the city hall lobby last Oct. 8, 2020.

City Mayor Renato Y. Gustilo urged scholars to aim higher and upgrade their cooking skills to attract more clients and generate employment if they want to venture into business.
Vice Mayor Christopher Carmona also recognized the efforts of the graduates for completing the required number of hours despite the pandemic.
Training beneficiaries, Hernalene Bayot and Cerah Dalisay thanked the city government and PESO as well as the TESDA saying that the training provided them quality and high standard skills in cooking which could make them globally competitive.
On the other hand, Erel Lim, PESO in-charge, said that the local government has been allocating funds to give free TESDA-accredited trainings to individuals as part of the economic interventions which will prepare beneficiaries for the new normal and equip the city with more skilled workers.
