As a known advocate of education, Carlos Jericho “Icot” L. Petilla initiated various educational programs even during his term as Governor of the Province of Leyte. Among these programs is the “ICOTP-ICT” or the “Income Creating Opportunities thru Technology Project”.

This is a comprehensive program that equips eligible high school scholars with the proper training and skills in information and communications technology. Upon finishing the program, the scholars become employable or eligible to work as a computer programmer in various companies upon the endorsement of ICOTP-ICT. The scholar becomes employed even without having to secure a college degree or diploma.

The program recognizes talented high school graduates who practically have no means to afford a college education. The program is recognized by various IT companies and is duly accredited by the TESDA.
