Aside from the ICCC, the City Government is also managing the Technical Institute of Iloilo City (TIIC) which offers technical and vocational courses such as driving, cooking, welding, butchery, etc. These courses are accredited by Technical Education And Skills Development Authority (TESDA).
“We have constructed a lot of school buildings, we have provided computers to teachers, we continue to do development in schools, and very recently we have provided solar panels to Iloilo (City) National High School. And we will continue to support education in Iloilo City,” said Treñas.
