TIL Instructor Mr. Emeliano B. Parijo Wins 2011 Welding Competition
Transnational Institute of Learning’s Instructor Mr. Emeliano B. Parijo won the 2011 Welding Competition hosted by the Philippine Welding Society and TESDA conducted at the TESDA compound, Taguig City. The competition was participated by various Training Centers, Construction Corporations, as well as Manufacturing Companies from around the Philippines. The total number of participants reached to twenty three. All of the companies who participated sent multiple welders like EEI Corporation who sent two welders, AG&P had four welders, and TOYOTA sent six welders in order to have better chances of winning the competition. Unfortunately for them, all it took for TIL was Mr. Emeliano B. Parijo under the guidance of our Chief Welding Instructor and Welding Training Manager Mr. Galileo Santos and their sound theoretical and absolute skills mastery of the science of welding.
The Welding Competition involved the process of jointing two pieces of Mild Steel Plate 6 inches by twelve inches using stainless steel welding rods. This process of welding is the most difficult of the Arc Welding Process as this is considered an Alloy Joint or jointing of different metals together. Under TESDA, the jointing of Alloys is considered as NCIII, the highest certification for welders. After the welding of the two pieces of Mild Steel Plate, the test pieces were then sent to a Laboratory for Radiographic Testing (the metal would be “x-rayed” for flaws).
The awarding was held during the Annual Members Convention of the Philippine Welding Society at the TESDA Compound in Taguig City. The other winners were one lady welder from the TESDA Women’s Center, another lady welder from AG&P, and the last came from EEI Corporation. A Certificate of Recognition was given to Mr. Parijo and TIL plus a cash price amounting to Php 7,500.00 was also given.
TIL joined the competition primarily to showcase it’s competence in administering welding training to its clients as well as our capability to asses applicants during trade testing. In other words, TIL Welding Instructors and Assessors “PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH” and are among the Top Welders in the Philippines. Headed by our Welding Training Manager Mr. Galileo Santos which is a DNV Certified Welder plus a Certified Welding Inspector, TIL has further established itself as among the top welding training centers in the Philippines.
