The PUM Netherlands Senior Experts and PPTF Partnership
PUM and PPTF have agreed to become partners in implementing a project in the development of the Training Regulations (TR) of the various critical technical skilled areas intended for the printing industry. The Training Regulations will serve as basis for the:
- Competency assessment and certification;
- Registration and delivery of training programs; and
- Development of curriculum and assessment instrument.
In other words, the TR will serve as guidelines for all printing schools or any learning institutions intended for the development and training of manpower skills for the printing industry under the supervision of the Technical Skills and Development Authority (TESDA). The TR will serve as the foundation in regulating the appropriate course curriculum for all printing schools and training centers. It will also serve as the basis wherein the level of competencies is being certified for all production workers in printing by undergoing Trade Skills Standardization Testing conducted by a certified Trade Testing Officer and will be issued certification by TESDA attesting the level of their competency.
A tribute to Tomas Viray (1925 - 2017)
PPTF Past President Tomas Viray was reunited with his Creator on June 23, 2017.
The guy who coined the slogan “The more you share, the more you prosper” and whose life story I wrote about in the book “The Power of Sharing” is dead. I recall that on page iv of said book, Tomas Viray said and I quote: “In parting, I wish to look at my life story less as a narration of success and more as a simple story of gratitude, faith, and most of all, giving. What God has given me, I give back to Him and my fellowmen. I have said this before and it gives me pleasure to say this again, “The more you share, the more you prosper.”
