    • Hi, Rejie!

      Last we heard, taking the assessment exam for Bookkeeping NC III is optional and not necessarily a requirement for practicing the profession. We’re not sure if there have been any recent updates that we are not aware of, though, so you might want to check with recent graduates to be sure.

    • Hi, Toni!

      We have acquaintances who graduated with a bachelor’s degrees who were allowed to take TESDA courses, so we’re guessing, yes. We’re not too sure if there are specific courses that do not allow graduates of four or five-year courses to enroll, though.

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry, but we have no available information regarding the schedule of TESDA classes as well as the fees involved. Schools can also have different requirements for this course so it’s best if you’ll call them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.
