The TESDA-accredited SCG Training Center officially opens following the inauguration and ribbon-cutting ceremonies last month in Mariwasa factory. The said training facility is a joint project of Mariwasa Siam Ceramics, Inc. (MSC), the country’s leading tile maker, and SCG, one of Southeast Asia’s leading industrial conglomerates and MSC’s parent company.
SCG Training Center is the first of its kind outside SCG’s headquarters in Thailand. The training center aims to develop skills related to construction such as installation of building products like tiles, roofing, bathroom, wall and ceiling, as well as to enhance service skills of SCG and Mariwasa frontliners or sales personnel in dealership. The short training course is TESDA-accredited and will be offered to select contractors, construction workers, specifiers, SCG employees and SCG frontliners.
Upon completion of the course, trainees can increase their chances of landing a more rewarding job and enhance the quality of their lives and their families. As part of Mariwasa and SCG’s commitment to social responsibility, the training courses are offered free of charge.
“We believe that education is the key for sustainable growth, especially with the ASEAN integration challenging the productivity fundamentals of the industry sector. This has led our organization to develop the SCG Training Center, an educational support assistance initiative for all stakeholders we engage with,” said Mr. Phaskorn Buranawit, SCG Philippines Country Director and President of MSC, during the inauguration ceremony.
Training will begin this month and is expected to impart skills to over 100 trainees before the year ends.
“With our common vision of fostering social development in the Philippines, I hope we continue to bring alternative avenue in developing talents and helping out-of-school youth in our society to learn trade skills we can offer,” added Mr. Buranawit.
The opening of SCG Training Center is part of the multi activity kick-off celebration of Mariwasa brand’s 50th anniversary in 2016. (PR)
