Butuan City – The DOLE Regional Office conducted a Trainer’s Training on the National Skills Registration Program (NSRP) to 3rd batch of selected PESOs followed by a Re-Orientation to the 1st and 2nd batch of PESO implementers on June 20, 2019.

The National Skills Registration Program (NSRP) is a program initiated by DOLE with the main objective of maintaining a continuing nationwide skills registry through the establishment of PESO Employment Information System (PEIS) formerly known as (SRS) Skills Registry System. This program is one of the major efforts of DOLE to improve the local labor and employment situation in the Philippines.

NSRP Regional Focal, Ms. Olga Virginia D. Asis, discussed the Program Overview and Agenda Setting. She also presented the NSRP accomplishments from 2017 to 1st Quarter of 2019. NSRP Coordinators, namely: Aimy B. Bacornay of DOLE-PDI, Monna Lyra O. Albia of DOLE-AgDN and Ms. Loren Mae M. Camacho of DOLE-ADS presented and discussed the PhilJobnet Jobseeker and Employers Module, PhilJobnet Admin & Reports Module and PEIS Modules, consisting of Jobseeker, Employer, Admin and Reports Manual respectively.

The Trainer’s Training was attended by 7 participating LGUs from the province of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur and Province of Dinagat Island. It was not just a lecture beause the participants were provided time to access the online employment facilitation engines such as PEIS and PhilJobnet.

In her welcome message, DOLE Regional Director Chona M. Mantilla encouraged the PESOs to use NSRP to help people find a job. “We can use this program to address the job skills mismatch,” she added.

Thirteen (13) participants from the 1st and 2nd batch of PESO implementers appreciated the program by doing a hands-on activity, accessing the system as admininstrators and were able to register their respective LGU’s as employers.

“Our no. 1 priority is to deliver quality service especially to the ones who look for a job.” She said that by coming in the activity, it became their investment to the program that will be here in this digital world,” said Naomi Lyn C. Abellana, DOLE Assistant Regional Director.
