Plans are underway for POAP’s conduct of Virtual Training Programs

July 1, 2020

In pursuance of the POAP’s vision to be the Center of Excellence in developing and strengthening the capabilities of human resources and as a CSC-accredited Learning and Development Institution, POAP plans to run a series of virtual training programs this year.

POAP decided to embark on this course of action considering the serious concern over the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced everyone to a “new normal,” where face-to-face interactions among individuals are not tolerated, and movement and transportation are limited in the enforcement of community quarantine protocols. It is, thus, our responsibility to adhere to such limitations, and practice measures such as, but not limited to, work from home/stay at home, social/physical distancing and conduct of online/blended learning.

The POAP virtual training programs we plan to implement soon are expected to help our government officials and employees cope with the new work situations under the “new normal” environment. Such trainings are aimed at capacitating them with knowledge and skills competencies, motivation and job satisfaction towards improved productivity.

Likewise, these virtual training programs will definitely enable government workers, who need to meet training requirements for promotion purposes, to be eligible for appointment to higher positions in accordance with the Civil Service Commission Qualification Standards for various positions in the bureaucracy.

To launch our virtual training programs, we are pleased to announce that POAP will hold a webinar on Friday, July 17, 2020, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm via ZOOM. We have invited competent resource speakers to discuss interesting topics. To join the webinar, please register using this online form or contact Mary S. Dominic at telephone numbers: 0917-8614273, 0949-8892016, 8-3730817 and 8-3733468 or send an e-mail to on or before Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
