Four graduates from Silliman Batch 2019 passed the Philippine National Information Technology Standards Foundation, Inc. (PhilNITS) exam.
Two came from the College of Computer Studies namely Seth M. Cornelio and Rommel L. Gallofin, both graduates of Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computer Science (BSCS). The other two were from BS Computer Engineering Ian Chester Lumagod and Gavin Morey Tatoy.
The four passers took the exam last October 27, 2019 at the University of San Carlos, Tambalan, Cebu. The exam is conducted twice a year. The first happened last April 28, 2019. They were part of the 73 exam takers who passed the Fundamental Information Technology Engineer Examination (FE).
The PhilNITS certification exam they took is the Fundamental Information Technology Engineer Examination (Level 2) which was designed for individuals who have basic fundamental knowledge and skills required to be an advanced IT human resource, and who possess practical utilization abilities.
Rommel Gallofin said that most of what came out of the exam were lessons from his course. “Passing PhilNits would help you when you want to work in Japan” according to him. He took PhilNits so that he can have easier job access in Japan. “I would like to thank all of my teachers in CCS for the lessons that were very helpful to me in passing this exam” he added.
