The region marked a track record in this prestigious award for having garnered the first national winner of the search last year, said Dr. Remegio Gonzales who also works in the same institution.
The Search for TESDA Idol was launched by TESDA last year to give due recognition to skilled workers who have become successful through tech-voc programs.
These are the workers, whom are aptly called “Pinoy Workers of the World Well-Employed” (Pinoy WOWOWE), have contributed to the development of their communities yet have remained unnoticed.
In addition, Dir. Gatinao said this recognition helps increase the level of public awareness and appreciation for tech-voc education, as well as raise the self-confidence level and morale of tech-voc graduates.

He worked as Electronics Technician in MSU-IIT upon finishing the tech-voc program, he pursued a degree program B.S. in Electrical Engineering until he attained the Masteral degree in Master of Teaching Technology in 1996.
