ITVET Students to Graduate Tonight, Hold Presentations at Lions' Den

     Eleven students of the Institute for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ITVET) in San Pedro will receive their certificates of completion for a Basic Electricity and Electronic training course this evening at the Lions’ Den.
    As completion of their course the students held presentations today at the Lions’ Den; primary school students made trips to view and learn from them. Instructor of the course for ITVET, Mr. Juan Alamilla, told Ambergris Today that he is glad that the institution is holding these courses on the Island and in Belize because the country needs trained professionals.
    “There is a lot of work to be done in this field,” said Mr. Alamilla. “There are many people who have the skills but are not properly trained. These students can now apply for their general electrical practitioner’s license in order to legally work. Most residents who go study abroad in this field tend to never come back to the country, so ITVET is doing a great service to properly train these individuals who can practice their skills on the island.”
    The three projects displayed at the Lions’ Den included a module displaying the use of natural resources to generate clean power such as hydro and wind power; a system that enables residents to switch power source from the electrical company to a batter backup in cases such like hurricane power outages and a third system that recycles Freon from AC units and refrigerators to help keep the environment clean.
