I, Swapan Biswas, aged 41 years hail from a small town Fatepur Malda in West Bengal. I am working as ‘painter’ from past 10 years and earn an income of Rs. 20000 to Rs. 22,000 per month.
‘Recognition of Prior Learning’ (RPL) program is a good initiative from LabourNet which helped me to understand the right way of doing the work to get effective and optimum result. It also guided me to discover the flaws in executing the tasks and work on them. During the program, I also learnt new and useful skills along with appropriate safety measures to be followed at workplace. The session was quite beneficial and has helped me to perform my daily tasks in more productive way.
Having received the certificate from the organizers, I believe that ‘Painter’ as a profession is now recognized and am very glad that now I have a certificate reflecting my profession. I now encourage my juniors to utililse such learning opportunities whenever available, to keep updated with the modern skills of doing the job.
