ZAMBOANGA CITY, March 10 (PIA) - - The Department of Science and Technology IX (DOST-IX) has launched a laudable project to honor women as the world observes International Women's Day on March 8, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

 

DOST is conducting a series of free digital literacy trainings at the DOST-Science and Technology Information Center (DOST-STIC).  

 

For the whole month of March, women Barangay Health Workers, Nutrition Scholars, and Midwives will be introduced to modules on Basic Computer Operation, Word Processing, Spreadsheet Application Operations, and Presentation Software Basics.

 

Recently, women from the City Health Office  began training to learn the basics of computer operation at the DOST-STIC office in San Jose, Zamboanga City.

 

Although the month of March is dedicated to the city’s select women, the DOST-STIC still accepts groups who are interested to avail of the free e-learning courses.

 

Those interested in the program are required to form a group (minimum of 7 members, maximum of 10) to avail of the training. DOST-STIC requires the group to register and choose their preferred session, wherein each session lasts for 4 hours and may either be taken in the morning or afternoon.

 

A participant who successfully completes a course is awarded with a certificate of completion. Snacks and learning materials are also provided for free.
