The program planned to be held regularly as much as two to three hours for a session. The time-amount, said Vivian, is suitable for people of Jakarta which usually have limited spare time.

The launching of the programs is going to be held at the same time as company’s 20 years anniversary ceremony.

Vivian mentioned that the program is also in accordance with the company's commitment to continue its innovation by means of products and services.

"Moving forward, we will continue to carry out innovations not only of products but also of our service," Vivian said.

Therefore, Vivian admitted there is no commercial target regarding the training program.

"We are highlighting the importance of awareness, because it shows more commitment in public education," Vivian concluded. (bus/ant)
