    • Hi, Rose An!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      From what we know, schools and training centers have to undergo a screening process before they can be authorized to offer TESDA courses. If there’s no training center that offers a certain course in a certain area, it could mean that not one passed the screening process, or there just isn’t enough demand that no one applied for accreditation. That’s just our guess, though. If you want to be sure, you might want to call up the schools in your area to verify.
