By Carlito J. Peralta


Camarines Sur Institute of Fisheries and Marine Sciences (CASIFMAS) trainer Dr. Rosaline J. Mojal was declared national champion in 2021 TESDA Tagsanay Award search during the 27th TESDA anniversary celebration.

Mojal, a resident of Naga City, is a trainer and competency assessor in Electronics Product Assembly and Servicing NC II, Trainers Methodology Level I and PV System Installation NC II.


She also grabbed the Best Trainer Portfolio and Best Trainer in Activity-based Assessment award.


The TESDA Tagsanay Award is an annual national competition conceptualized to acknowledge and give due recognition to its performing trainers and those who gave invaluable contribution to the success and laudable reputation of the agency.


CASIFMAS’s recognition journey started in 2009 when its Skills Training on the Air (STOA) radio program and the Village Technology in TV (VTTV) program bagged the Tagsanay National Gabay Nayon Award.


Among the Institute’s roster of Tagsanay awardees were: Carlito J. Peralta (Tagsanay Taglikha Award, 2009, Lakan-ilaw Award, 2012, Tagsanay Katangi-tanging Serbisyo Award, 2013, Outstanding Trainer Award, 2015); Jasmin A. Valenzuela (Outstanding Trainer Award, 2016); Dr. Victorino B. Almario (Top 9 and Outstanding Trainer Award, 2018); Angelica R. Cañas (Outstanding Trainer Award, 2019); and Engr. Maribel B. Yang (Top 8 and Outstanding Trainer in Enhancement of Training Package Award, 2020).


Vocational School Superintendent Rita R. Obsequio said that the recognitions are more than the plaque or cash award. What matters most is the memorable experience of prestige, esteem and honor behind the feat. It is no longer about who won but the good reputation, admiration and status it brought to the institution and the TESDA personnel in Bicol region.


In an interview with Dr. Mojal, she said, “Tagsanay award is not a mere competition for me. I consider it as a challenge to prove the best in me. I grabbed the opportunity to become one and luckily I made it.”


The CASIFMAS community is planning to name a Tagsanay Avenue inside its main campus in recognition to the winning participants who brought commendable reputation to the institution over the years.
