    • Hi, Charlene!

      Have you tried asking the school you graduated from if they can provide a new set of copies for you? Some schools in the Philippines provide copies for as many times as the alumnus wants, so all you have to do is file a request. We’re not sure if the same policy applies to your school, but it’s probably worth asking them.

    Dear Sir/ Madam:

    Hi. I’m looking for a school or training centre for caregiving course that is TESDA accredited as well as in compliance with the Canadian immigration legislation and policy as I’m planning to apply as a live-in caregiver under the Live-in caregiver program of Canada. I’ve seen list of schools from the link I’ve followed from previous posts but I’m not sure which one of them complies with the Canadian immigration legislation and policy. Is it safe to say that since they are TESDA accredited, they comply with the Canadian immigration?

    I would appreciate very much your help in this matter.

    • Hi, Diane!

      According to TESDA, “In areas where new Training Regulations (TR) have been promulgated, holders of NC/COC shall upon expiration undergo competency assessment based on the new TR. In the absence of new promulgated Training Regulations (TR), holders of NC or COC shall upon expiration be renewed upon request of holder and after verification in the RWAC.”

  57. Stephanie says:

    Hi, I just wanted to ask if the whole course needs to be taken even if you’ve already aquired an associate in health science education or can we proceed to certification?

    • Hi, Stephanie!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      According to the TESDA official we spoke with, enrolling in the course is not a requirement in taking the assessment exam. If you’re confident you’re going to pass the exam, you can skip the training part. They strongly encourage students try to enroll in the course first to catch up on the things they might have missed/they might miss, though.

    Thank you so much!

    Kind Regards,

    Angel Salvo

    • Hi, Stanley!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry but we have no available information regarding the training schedule of the different TESDA courses. You can use the link below to find schools or training centers that offer this course, though. It’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

  74. Chriska says:

    Hi! Im a registered nurse and applying for a live-in caregiver. I want to know about the NC II exam. I’ve read that I don’t need to take the course anymore and that I only need to take the exam.

    • Hi, Chriska!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      According to TESDA, enrolling in any of the courses is not a prerequisite to taking the national certification exam. They do, however, recommend taking it as a sort of refresher course to increase examinees’ chances of passing.

  75. Hi. Im also planning to enroll in caregiving, while searching i found caregiving course and caregiving ncii, is there any difference between this two? is there caregiving nc i?
    Thank you so much. This is so helpful. Keep it up :).

    • Hi, Rem!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re not quite sure, but the TESDA website only has “Caregiving NC II” on its list of courses, so we’re guessing the Caregiving course you are referring to was probably based on the course offered by TESDA. If you want to be sure, though, you might want to compare the curriculum of the course you’re referring to against the training regulations of TESDA for Caregiving NC II, or you could also probably confirm with the school offering it so they can give you a more accurate response.

  76. good day……. is ncai neede for enrolling caregiver? thank you
