The UTI lecturers were assigned in 5 cities/districts, namely Bandarlampung, Metro, Pesawaran, Tanggamus, and South Lampung. Furthermore, the lecturers also carry out sharing session activities with all their students under their guidance. This activity is intended to find out the implementation of programs carried out by students and to discuss problems and obstacles while students carry out assignments.
