TESDA to train 150,000 workers for Duterte admin’s ‘Build, Build, Build’

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is looking to train more than 100,000 construction workers for the Duterte administration's multitrillion-peso infrastructure plan.

TESDA chief Alvin Feliciano told Unang Balita that the government needs to recruit 150,000 construction workers and only 25,000 people have signified interest to enroll to the program during the first National Technical and Vocational Education and Training Enrollment and Jobs Bridging last month.

He said TESDA will hold a second event on April 5 and 6 to get more enrolees.

The training is free, he said.

"'Di naman po lingid sa inyong kaalaman, meron pong 'Build Build Build' program ang gobyernong Duterte so kailangan po natin ng sangkatutak, hindi ordinaryong number po ang pinag-uusapan natin," Feliciano said.

"Sangkatutak na skilled workers, construction workers ang kailangan po natin na tutugon sa paggawa ng pangangailangan ng paggawa ng imprastruktura sa bansa," Feliciano added.

The Finance Department has said the Duterte administration will build six airports, nine railways, three bus rapid transits, 32 roads and bridges, four seaports, four energy facilities, 10 water resource projects, five flood control facilities, and three redevelopment programs under the the  Build, Build, Build plan.

The government said it will spend over P8 trillion for the country's "golden age of infrastructure."
