South Korea was reported today to have granted again training programs for Pinoy workers who want to work abroad.

According to Manila Bulletin, the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) once again signed a memorandum of agreement with Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Department of National Defense (DND) last week.

The said agreement is for the establishment of a Human Resource Development (HRD) center, at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City, which will be operational in 2013 as per plan.

The agreement was reportedly signed by TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva, DND Secretary Voltaire Gazmin, and KOICA vice-president Dongwon Ahn.

With this, the South Korean government will invest for the construction of the HRD Training Center and will provide technical training equipments in the Philippines, the report said.

Some Korean experts will then come to the Philippines to train Filipino officials, and also in South Korea.

Qualified trainers, which include those having high English proficiency, will be recruited by TESDA for the training program in Korea, the newspaper said.

Among the fields that was said to be offered are electrical installation and maintenance, mechatronics, instrumentation and control servicing, animation, game development programming, as well as Korean language and culture.

As part of the requirement after the overseas training, the trainers will work for the project and should teach at the HRD Center.

For more details and information about the programs and services of TESDA, the public is being advised to call 887-7777, or send SMS messages to 0917-4794370 for Globe and 0918-2738232 for Smart.
