Due to the expansion of operations and deployment of systems in the PhRO and Service Offices level, competent personnel were appointed as IT designates. To equip them with added skills on information technology, on June 2-3, 2011, an orientation and workshop intended for them was held and spearheaded by Mr. Luisito O. Santos, Information Technology Management Section (ITMS) Head.
On the first day, the participants were trained on how to properly perform hardware maintenance and simple troubleshooting, printer installation and network troubleshooting. The participants experienced hands-on/actual performance of said topics.
Elvira C. Ver, Regional Vice President, imparted an inspirational message on the second day. She highlighted that “hindi ninyo kailangang sabihin kung ano ang nagawa ninyo dahil balang araw malalaman din na kayo ang talagang gumawa at kung ano ang mga nagawa ninyo.” She also added that the IT Designates will be of great help especially for the forthcoming replication of the PhilHealth Sabado on June 25, 2011.
Updates in the field of information and communication technology and an open forum was also held on the second day. Awarding of certificates of participation to the participants concluded the two-day IT orientation for IT designates.
