Ormoc City – Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) – Leyte 4th District Engineering Office (DEO) has completed the construction of Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Center in Ormoc City.
The project has a total budget allocation of Php 20 million funded under the General Appropriations Act (GAA) 2021. The 3-storey building has an overall floor area of 912 square meters and includes 9 classrooms in total which will benefit more than 200 trainees, and a roof deck with provision for water tank.
According to Technical Education and Skills Development Center (TESDC) Administrator Allan O. Nobria, the building will be used for carpentry, masonry and tile-setting courses as these skills are most in demand by construction firms.
“With the completion of this structure, DPWH has provided TESDA personnel and trainees a spacious, reliable building conducive to learning,” said District Engineer Allan D. Eway.
The utilization of said building will eventually lead to more skilled workers and increased livelihood opportunities in the City of Ormoc. (PR)
