Bill proposes 2-year mandatory military, police training for college, techvoc students

Failure to comply would not qualify the student for graduation.


This is the penalty for those college and technical vocational students who fails to comply with the two year mandatory basic military and police training program as proposed in the Senate


Senate Bill No. 1565 filed by Senator  Francis Tolentino explains that his proposed measure aims to increase the awareness of students on the country’s need for human resources in times of war, calamities and disasters, and national or local emergencies.

This, he added, is also in support of the government’s law enforcement strategy against crimes and other civic obligations.

“The proposed bill provides safeguards for the protection of all higher and technical vocational students against abuses such as bribery, corruption, graft, hazing, sexual harassment, and others which had become the concern of the public in the past,”  the senator said.


“With this proposed measure, the youth – the hope of our motherland – will rekindle in their hearts their love of country and fellow citizens, nationalism and patriotism, and will once again make their mark in the annals of history,” Tolentino  added.



Students can be exempted when they are physically or psychologically unfit; chosen by their school to serve as varsity players in sports competitions; and for other valid reasons as approved by concerned government agencies, upon recommendation by any educational institution.





The proposed bill also carries with it advantages for those who will comply with the mandatory training.


They could be eligible, for instance, for enlistment in the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the Philippine National Police, Philippine Coast Guard, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, and Bureau of Fire Protection “unless a waiver is issued by the Department Secretaries of the aforementioned military and civilian organizations.”
