27 newly appointed Engineer II employees of the eight District Engineering Offices (DEOs) of Regional Office XII who comprised the 2nd Batch of CY 2016 Comprehensive Training for Provisional Accreditation of DPWH Field Engineers passed the concluding exam conducted last June 10, 2016 simultaneously in all 16 regions nationwide.
During his meeting in DPWH Region XII last June 22, 2016, Sec. Rogelio L. Singson emphasized to nurture and continuously train young and smart engineers because he considers that they could help serve the country instead of working abroad.
Director Reynaldo S. Tamayo expressed pride for training qualified young engineers. He added that DPWH Region XII is continuously refining to employ competent passers and even topnotchers, the right people to implement the right projects.
These future project engineers are expected to oversee and handle 586 projects amounting to a total of P13 billion included in the CY 2016 Infrastructure Program regionwide.
The 2nd batch 21-day comprehensive training for field engineers was held from May 16, 2016 to June 10, 2016. The 3rd batch of training is already ongoing with 40 young engineers all set to be equipped with the technical and managerial functions in project implementation.
