PUERTO PRINCESA, Palawan – With the recently concluded training and assessment on national competency, Rice Machinery Operations and Maintenance (RMO NC II), the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) and the Western Philippines University (WPU) are partnering again for another training. This time, the Training on Trainers Methodology Level1 (TM1).

The training aims to enhance the knowledge, attitude, skills (KAS), and work values of the RMO NC II graduates in accordance to the prevailing standards of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training sector.

With this, around 30 participants are undergoing the 21-day TM1 training not only to become assessors on RMO, but also as trainers.

Moreover, the training involves competency performance assessment in the areas of instructional delivery and facilitation, and maintenance of training resources and facilities. Participants who will pass the assessment will be awarded TESDA TM1 certificates.

TM1 started on August 14 and will end on September 3, 2017 at the WPU Puerto Princesa Campus.
