Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija - On October 23, 2023, the students of Basic Officer Leadership Course 3 (BOLC3) Engineer CL 08 - 2023, Engineer Officer Basic Course Class 03 - 2023, Engineer Non-Commissioned Class Advance Course Class 87 - 2023, and Engineer Non-Commissioned Officer Basic Course Class 114 - 2023 were directed to participate in the Construction Project Workshop programmed by the Engineer School, Maneuver Center, TRADOC, PA. The workshop is in collaboration with the 5th Security Forces Assistance Brigade (5SFAB), US Army, led by CPT EDDIE WARDWELL for the expertise exchange and collaboration of knowledge.
The workshop aimed to provide hands-on experience to the students and put their theoretical knowledge of project implementation into practice. Likewise, it is designed to develop the student's leadership, communication, teamwork, and critical thinking skills. The students were required to complete various projects as part of the workshop following the Army Engineers' standard operating procedures. During the workshop, the Engineer School students presented actual project proposals and project briefings to the Engineer School Faculty members, along with the team of CPT WARDWELL, who served as observers.
The objective of this collaboration was to exchange proficiency skills and knowledge for wider connections and support in enhancing the Maneuver Center Facilities. The Engineer School ensured that by the end of the workshop, the students would possess the necessary knowledge and skills required to serve as Army Engineer Leaders in the field.
Prior to the collaboration with the US Army, on October 11, the Engineer School issued a Construction Directive to the students. The directive instructed them to repair the Greenhouse building and the E-library of the Maneuver Center. The Construction Project Workshop provided the students with an excellent opportunity to showcase the skills and abilities they learned through their training.
