    • Hi, Mark!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      As much as we’d like to help you with your concern, we don’t think we’re in the position to tell you which schools are the best since we don’t know much about them except for some general information. Why don’t you try to visit online forums or the facebook accounts of the schools you’re thinking of enrolling at? We’re sure there are students there who can give you helpful insights about the schools.

      Good luck! :)

    • Hi, Bryan!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      “The trainees who wish to enter the course should possess the following requirements:

      • At least high school graduate
      • 18 – 45 years old
      • Able to communicate both oral and written
      • With drawing skills
      • Must know how to operate a computer
      • Good moral character
      • Must be physically and mentally fit

      This list does not include specific institutional requirements such as educational attainment, appropriate work experience and others that may be required from the trainees by the school or training center delivering the TVET program.”

      As for the drawing skills, TESDA made no mention of how they are going to determine if an applicant’s drawing skills are good, so it’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you proper advice.

  5. hi, ask ko po san po about sa pag-eenroll:
    >san po ba ung pinakamalapit dito sa makati?
    >panu po ba mag enroll?
    >open po ba to sa working students? nagtatrabaho po kc ako.

    • Hi, Jaymer!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      You can find the list of schools/training centers that offer this course on this page: http://www.tesda.gov.ph/inc/tvisearch.aspx?duration=3d%20animation. Two schools/training centers in Makati are included in the list.

      As for enrolling, just choose a school/training center then try to get in touch with them. They’ll tell you the specific requirements as well as the training schedule.

      We’re not sure if schools or training centers accept working students, but we believe there are some courses that have minimal contact sessions so you can probably squeeze them in your schedule. That depends on the course and the school or training center, though, so it’s still best if you’ll ask them directly so they can give you a more accurate response.

    • Hi, Taige!

      From what we’ve been advised, you can take the assessment exams without enrolling in any of the courses; however, we’re not sure if there are exceptions that we may not be aware of, so you might still want to get in touch with TESDA to be sure.
