A total of 70 students graduated under the Training for Work Scholarship Program of the Negros Occ. Language and Information Technology Center (NOLITC) during its 119th Culmination Ceremony held Tuesday.

Of the 70 graduates, 22 finished with Basic Nihongo Culture Course (Batch 1), 24 graduated with Contact Center Services NC II (Batch 61), and 24 graduated with English Language Proficiency Course (Batch 34).

The 22 graduates of Basic Nihongo Course underwent a nine-day intensive training under Katsutoshi Furukawa, a volunteer teacher from Japan who rendered his teaching services for free.

Gov. Alfredo Marañon, Jr. thanked Furukawa for his voluntary service.

“I always believe that the best way to fight poverty is to give quality education to underprivileged children, and that includes developing their skills and capabilities,” he said.

He also said that the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental strives to give scholarships to Negrenses who are willing to improve their lives.

The graduates of Contact Center Services NC II finished with 144 hours of training while the English Language Proficiency graduates finished with 100 hours of training.

According to NOLITC Vocational School Administrator, Dr. Ma. Cristina Orbecido, 80 percent of their Contact Center Services graduates are already hired by their BPO partners based in Bacolod City, namely Transcom and Teletech./Capitol News
