Around 24 individuals from Bogo City received 12-day free technical training on Rural Impact Sourcing (RIS) hosted by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) 7.
This was the first of a series of projected RIS technical training for the Visayas.
The said training covers e-commerce, digital marketing and freelancing modules wherein each trainee will be paired with local micro, small and medium enterprises to develop their projects.
On its launch at the New Bogo City Hall yesterday, DICT 7 Director Antonio Edward Padre claimed that the training and its pioneering trainees from Bogo City will be of great contribution to the direction that City of Bogo is going.
He added that infrastructure and connectivity wise, the City of Bogo is potential for future business process outsourcing (BPO) endeavors.
