Camarines Sur Integrates Waste Management Course in NSTP


PILI, Camarines Sur, July 2 (PNA) -- The Basic Solid Waste Management Training (BSWMT) program is now an option for students to enlist in, particularly those in Camarines Sur, in lieu of the Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC) and other training courses under the National Service Training Program (NSTP) as provided under Republic Act 9163.

Along this line, Governor Luis Ray Villafuerte wants waste management to be an integral part of the NSTP course under its Civic Welfare Training Service component, in furtherance of its advocacy towards Solid Waste Management Program (SWMP) within its jurisdiction particularly inside the provincial capitol complex.

The SWMP technical working group, in collaboration with the Camarines Sur Information Technology Center (CSITC) - the educational arm of the provincial government - has submitted the BSWMT course outline to the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and consequently, was approved as an NSTP course.

Camarines Sur now is the very first province integrating the course in its school curricula.

BSWMT has since been implemented this semester as an official NSTP course at the CSITC and would afford students a more meaningful use of the time allotted for said course in learning invaluable knowledge and skills.

RA 9163 mandates that students, male and female, of any baccalaureate degree course or of at least two (2) year technical vocational courses in public and private educational institutions shall complete at least one (1) of the NSTP components as requisite for graduation, namely the Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC), Literacy Training Service and Civic Welfare Training Service.

The training is conducted every Saturday and will last for two semesters. (PNA)
