The trainees will be given relevant disciplines by the end of the semester, according to the test results that would meet their own preference field.
The governor also received input from media representatives who stressed the importance of re-drafting TVTC’s way of dealing with the media. They wanted the constitution of a management committee with sufficient skill and experience to change the media status quo.
