A total of 17 students including 4 graduates of the city government-owned Technical Institute of Iloilo City (TIIC) Molo campus will be going to work in Doha, Qatar and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) soon.
Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog said the trade test passers were certified as qualified for employment abroad after passing the trade test conducted by the LML Manpower Services Inc., a PERT/CPM manpower exponent.
The city mayor said the graduates are clear example of the city government desire to help poor students secure vocational and technical courses for job placements in other countries and help their families.
Mabilog also assured assistance in securing medical and other certifications from the city government relative to processing of travel documents of the workers.
Mathilde Octavio, officer-incharge school administrator of TIIC, said that 2 are first year Civil Technical students, 11 are second year and 4 are graduates of Carpentry and Masonry/Tile Setter.
