Revving Up Readiness: RTC-NCR conducts Basic Automotive Preventive Maintenance Training for Jail Officers and PDLs

The recent one-day training session on Basic Automotive Preventive Maintenance and Servicing held at Metro Manila District Jail Annex 1 was a significant event aimed at equipping participants with essential automotive care skills. The training, conducted face-to-face as part of the Community-based Training Program, focused on two core aspects: changing engine oil and replacing brake pad/shoe components.

Participants in the training included Jail Officers and Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDL) from MMDJ Annex 1, demonstrating a commitment to inclusivity and skill development within the correctional facility. Led by Mr. Jervin G. Yambao, an experienced trainer in automotive maintenance, the session provided participants with practical knowledge and hands-on experience in conducting engine oil changes and brake pad/shoe replacements.

The training, spanning eight hours, emphasized the importance of basic automotive preventive maintenance and servicing. Participants not only learned how to perform specific tasks but also gained an understanding of the underlying principles and techniques involved. Additionally, they were introduced to the basic use of automotive hand tools, enhancing their proficiency in maintenance tasks.

A notable aspect of the training was its partnership between RTC-NCR and MMDJ Annex 1, as part of the latter’s PDL Welfare and Development Program. This collaborative effort highlights a holistic approach towards rehabilitation and skill-building within the correctional facility. By integrating automotive maintenance into the program, stakeholders demonstrated a commitment to empowering participants with practical skills that can enhance their employability and contribute to their overall well-being.
