Forty soldiers serving in Jaffna who successfully completed a masonry course conducted by NAITA (National Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Authority) received their certificates last Tuesday (25) from the Commander Security Forces – Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe at a brief ceremony held at SF-J gymnasium at Palaly.

They belonged to the first batch of soldiers who were professionally trained in masonry by NAITA for the first time. Training course arranged by the Civil Affairs and Public Relations Office Jaffna on directives of Commander SF-J started on 09 July 2010 and ended on 28th October 2010.

“Holcim” Cement Corperation cooperated with NAITA to conduct this National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) Level 3 course which enabled the soldiers selected from different battalions attached to the SF-J to easily find job opportunities even in foreign countries if necessary after thier retirement from the service.

Commander SF-J during his address congratulated all certificate holders and appreciated their contribution towards government’s development projects and Army-initiated housing projects in Jaffna.

NAITA masonry training enabled those 40 soldiers to share the responsibility of constructing a two-storied building at Kopay Navalar School donated by the Uva Provincial Council, a three-storied building at Thelippalai Mahajana College donated by the Secretary Defence and a large number of houses for civilians in different areas with soldiers of Corps of Engineer Services.
