Along with their OJT Coordinator, the third-year Bachelor of Science in Agriculture students majoring in Animal Science, Crop Science, and Agricultural Extension underwent on-the-job training in the various agencies, namely the Agricultural Training Institute-Research Training Center, La Trinidad, Benguet; the Bureau of Animal Breeding Research Center, Baguio City; and the Research Outreach Station, Ros Luna Apayao on August 08- September 20, 2023.
A faculty member accompanied the eight (8) students with majors in Animal Science (AS), five majors in Crop Science (CS), and three majors in Agricultural Extension and Communication (AgExt). The students' knowledge, abilities, and work ethic have been strengthened in their area of expertise by the training mentioned. On-the-job training is part of the college curriculum designed to prepare and orient students toward their future jobs and work. It is a skill development program component where learners receive on-the-job training to teach them how to perform the job. Students will be exposed to a variety of work environments, providing them with the chance to gain experience and put what they have learned in the classroom into practice.
Since this instruction requires time and work, the student should treat it seriously. OJT may act as a springboard for professionals looking to advance in their careers. Once the requisite number of hours of on-the-job training has been completed, the student will have gained confidence in their ability to operate independently, an intense learning experience, ethical working values, improved communication skills, and professional self-development. Along with gaining useful skills, the trainee got to meet new people and learn how to conduct themselves in an ethical manner. Furthermore, the trainee fulfilled the company's request for assistance.
