Iloilo City Community College Expands Course Offerings with Two New Programs

Mayor Jerry Treñas announced that the city-run Iloilo City Community College (ICCC) will soon offer two new courses in Criminology and Social Services. This move is part of Mayor Treñas' education thrust under his W.H.E.E.L.S. (Welfare, Health, Environment, Education, Livelihood, Sustainability) agenda for inclusive development and good governance program. 

"For the Iloilo City Community College, we are opening up two additional courses. One is Criminology and the other is Social Services," said Treñas.

ICCC is a CHED-recognized institution that offers free tuition and other school fees, thanks to Republic Act (RA) 10931 or Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act. The school initially offered Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management (BSTM) and Office Administration (BSOA) and added Bachelor of Special Needs Education majoring in Early Childhood Education (ECD) last year.

Aside from ICCC, the City Government is also managing the Technical Institute of Iloilo City (TIIC), which offers technical and vocational courses such as driving, cooking, welding, and butchery that are accredited by the Technical Education And Skills Development Authority (TESDA). 

Mayor Treñas said, "We have constructed a lot of school buildings, we have provided computers to teachers, we continue to do development in schools, and very recently we have provided solar panels to Iloilo (City) National High School. And we will continue to support education in Iloilo City."
