CITY OF ILAGAN, Isabela, Oct. 17 (PIA) – At least 26 Barangay Health Workers (BHWs) from Cordon have undergone a two-day training on contact tracing held at the town’s gymnasium.

The training was conducted on October 12-13, 2020 by the Southern Isabela College of Arts and Trades, a TESDA-supervised school in Southern Isabela, in partnership with LGU Cordon and the Provincial Government of Isabela.

Dr. Demetrio Anduyan Jr, TESDA Isabela head, said TESDA is committed to help Local Government Units (LGUs) and the Department of Health (DOH) in empowering BHWs in the conduct of contact tracing in the fight against COVID-19.

He said the BHWs will be provided National Certificate Level II if they will pass the assessment test of TESDA after completion of the training.

“We continue conducting contact tracing training to BHWs and BNS through our two TESDA-supervised schools in the province,” Anduyan said.

Last week, SICAT-TESDA has trained BHWs in Santiago City and Ramon town while the Isabela School of Arts and Trades (ISAT) based in the City of Ilagan, also continuously train BHWs on contact tracing.

He said Contact Tracing Level II is now a regular program of the two TESDA – supervised institutions in Isabela. (MDCT/MGE/PIA 2-Isabela)
