The skills to be acquired according to the Executive Secretary of the Catholic schools board, Rev. Fr. Dominic Umo include; auto mechanics, electrical electronics and solar panel installation, sheet metal and iron works, computer/information technology, acoustics, woodwork as well as welding and fabrication.
The training, which began today, according to the Church, is in partnership with HIFA – Austria and will hold at the HIFA – SPC skill acquisition center at St. Patrick’s College, Ikot Ansa, Calabar.
The classes are billed to hold Monday through Fridays and will last from 8:00AM to 2:00PM daily at no cost to the public. However, trainees are expected to be committed for the three-month duration of training, upon which they will receive a certificate of competence.
Consequently, the Church requested it’s Parish Priests and other clergymen to inform their congregations of the opportunity to learn a trade.
