The 15-day training program was held at MFC's net mending facility in Cawit, Zamboanga City. The training was administered by MFC Net Mending Supervisor Rene Salon.
The 30 participants in the training program were selected by the Mega Fishing Corporation and Naval Forces Western Mindanao while TESDA IX provided the training design. After the training the participants are absorbed in the MFC as net menders.
The aim of TESDA's industry-based training is to accomplish convergence between Industry sector and Government where prospective and contractual workers are trained in technical-vocational skills to enhance the individual worker's skills and provide better service for the Industry.
