After undergoing a 23-day bridal makeup training program, participants consisting of 20 make-up artists from the Batangtoru and Muara Batangtoru Sub-Districts took part in a Competency Test for Bridal Makeup with Long Veils and Headscarves at Sopo Daganak. This competency test has birthed skilled local makeup artists who have reached high standards and are anticipated to expand their market presence. The test itself involved two examiners from Medan, namely Sri Astrida Danawaty and Rumini, and lasted for 4 hours. The training and competency test were facilitated by PT Agincourt Resources (PTAR) in collaboration with the Competency Testing Center (Tempat Uji Kompetensi/TUK) Mora Padangsidimpuan, and LKP Meivi Salon & Florist, serving as training instructors.
Following this competency test, it is expected that participants will grow more confident in their business ventures and contribute to the emergence of new entrepreneurs in the field of bridal makeup within the villages surrounding the Martabe Gold Mine. PTAR is committed to continuously developing and empowering the community as one of its stakeholders.
