Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano recently completed the online course Expert Insights on Managing a Crisis, one of the courses offered in the learning platform of solutions provider Xplore Philippines Inc and Informatics College. Updating his knowledge on how to handle the crisis within an organization, Mayor Cayetano took the lead in taking a digital course under his government’s cyber schooling initiative.
In April, the local government of Taguig launched the Taguig Online Resources and Community Hub (TORCH). The program offers various online courses students, workers, and entrepreneurs can learn from while staying at home. The course completed by Mayor Cayetano is one of the many digital courses offered by the Training and Enrichment Courses from Taguig Online Campus (TECTOC), one of the five component programs of TORCH.
