The graduates came from various barangays in Bacolod City and Negros Occidental who grabbed the opportunity of free education in terms of computer servicing. During the training period, the trainees are taught on values, computer programming, most importantly, how to dismantle and assemble the computer unit. Unless the trainee can dismantle and assemble the computer at a given time, he will not be issued a certificate of completion, attested by the Technology Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). Trainors Efren Taocta and Dianne May Deloma will not recommend for graduation of the trainee unless they pass the practical exams administered to them.

Elizabeth Jocson, Grande’s chairman of the board of trustees said, providing free technical skills to the less privileged and hopeless out of school youths, is a commitment of the Founder, for he was himself once poor and hopeless.

Handumanan Brgy. Capt. Febe Legaspi is thankful to Grande for helping the less privileged in her community, and assure them with a bright future.

Lots of Grande’s graduates are now working here and abroad, benefitting the inputs from Grande.

Also, lots of professionals are availing of the services of Grande because the trainees learn fast as it is done on a hands-on basis and "learning by doing" approach.

The next batch of training is set on the 3rd week of this month, July, on first come first served basis. Interested trainees must be a high school graduate, indigent, and willing to learn.*
