The city government of Marikina is offering a shoe-making training course for residents of the city.

Marikina Mayor Del de Guzman is encouraging Marikeņos to avail themselves of the free shoe-making training, one of the short livelihood courses offered by the city government of Marikina through the Marikina Livelihood Training Center (MLTC).

The training aims to teach residents, especially the youth on how to make durable and quality shoes, which Marikina City is known for.

"Through MLTC's shoe-making course, students with shoe making skills and creativity can use their talents to start their own shoe businesses in the future. This can also further help revitalizing the shoe industry of Marikina," de Guzman said.

The MLTC will teach students the fundamentals of shoe designing, pattern-making, upper-making, shoe-lasting, sole-attaching, finishing and shoe care.

Registration for the training is on-going. Interested participants must submit the following requirements: photocopy of barangay clearance, community tax certificate (cedula), voter's ID or voter's verification slip, two pieces 1x1 ID picture and black pen.

Registrants aged 17 years and below are advised to submit a photocopy of the parent or guardian's voter's ID and a letter of consent allowing the minor to take the said course.
