The activity prepared the students to meet the needs and challenges of employment. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has caused massive disruption in the education sector, one of the most affected with this scenario is the conduct of On-the-Job Training/Practicum. And so, believing that education should not stop even during crisis situations, the BSCA designed an alternative program in order to continue with activities required by the academic program.
