The MOA signing was witnessed by officials and employees of TESDA and representatives of YMPH who later unveiled the marker for the Motorcycle Training Center. The training laboratory was also blessed during the same event.
Mamondiong said that the project would later provide National Certificates II to trainees who would complete their training and pass the necessary assessments.
The MOA stated that the establishment of a Technical Vocational Education and Training Center for Motorcycle and Small Engine Servicing will serve out of school youth or marginalized young adults specifically women.
