IA trains students from UA and NIPSC
Twenty three (23) incoming 4th year B.S. Fisheries students from the University of Antique (UA) and eleven (11) from the Northern Iloilo Polytechnic State College (NIPSC) attended the On-the-Job Training Program of the Institute of Aquaculture, College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences from April 17 to June 02, 2017. As a continuing program, this was the third time for UA students to undergo the OJT while it is the first time for NIPSC students. The training program is granted upon request of the schools and colleges which are engaged in fisheries education. As an extensions service program of CFOS, the training was a way of strengthening and equipping students of other universities and colleges with the current technologies and basic principles in fisheries. Lectures and laboratory exercises were provided to actively involve the CFOS’ faculty, staff and researchers (UPV and Project-based personnel) in the program.
“It is not the end but just the beginning of a more productive collaboration with your school,” says Dr. Rex Ferdinand M. Traifalgar, Scientist and Current Director of the Institute of Aquaculture. The OJT Program successfully ended with a simple closing ceremony held on separate dates at the Conference Room, Umali Hall, College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, Miagao, Iloilo.
