Highway Patrol Group 9’s selected operatives from the different provincial Units in Zamboanga Peninsula attended a short-term course on computer literacy conducted by the Technical Education Skills Development Authority 9  (TESDA 9) last April 1-5, 2013 at the TESDA regional  office in San Roque.

During the five-day course, the HPG operatives were lectured on simple encoding, browsing, surfing online, basic things on how to operate the on and off. how to log-in or log-out a computer, computer basic maintenance, basic printing and similar others.

HPG-9 Chief Supt. Severino B. Agustin said the short-term course on computer literacy is very important  because every HPG operative when conducting an operation along a highway in the region is equipped with a computer laptop.    Agustin said the HPG men  are required to upgrade their knowledge on computer because every motorvehicle suspected as stolen must be checked with the Vehicle Information Management  System ( VIMS ) that links all HPG units nationwide to determine the  vehicle’s status.

HPG operatives also go to the website of the Land Transportation Office to determine if a motorvehicle is carnapped or stolen.

Agustin thanked  TESDA-9 Director Lorenzo G. Macapili for the success of the five-day schooling of his  men. — Allen Abastillas
