Mr. Olin P. Caduyac is a resident of Quezon, Tandag City, Surigao del Sur, a high school graduate with post-secondary technical-vocational education in Consumer Electronics Servicing NC II and Driving NC II.

Availing a college education is impossible for him because his parents only have meager income enough to sustain their daily needs. So after graduating from high school, he made sure to help his parents in his own little way by accepting work as a construction helper. Truly, his earnings had contributed a lot to his family.

Olin did not stop working out his dream. He heard through the radio about the skills training supported by the Hon. Congressman Philip A. Pichay at the Access for Youth Training and Employment Center (AYEC). He opted to enroll in Consumer Electronics Servicing (CES) NC II which is in line with his interest. After completing the CES program, he again enrolled at the Jobs through Tech-Voc Provincial Skills Training Center (JTP-PSTC) for Driving NC II believing the importance of acquiring many skills for him to find a good and decent work.

Aiming for success in the National Assessment of these two qualifications, he showed his diligence and passion during the training and in his exposure to actual work situation that enabled him to pass the national assessment both in CES NC II and Driving NC II with flying colors. To obtain more experience in driving and in doing domestic appliance repair, Olin voluntarily offered his driving skills and electronics services to his relatives and friends.

Another opportunity came when the Philippine Army announced that they were hiring men with knowledge and skills in Driving. With God’s blessings, Olin with confidence applied for the position. His National Certificates in CES and Driving enabled him to be one of the priority applicants for the job needed. He was enlisted and now he is receiving a salary of not less than fifteen thousand (P 15,000.00) pesos a month. Aside from his fixed monthly income, he also has an extra income from his skills in home appliance repair. Olin says “My TESDA National Certificates II in Consumer Electronics Servicing and Driving made me a priority recruit in the Philippine Army."
