    • Hi, Arian!

      TESDA doesn’t usually specify whether prior education or training is required to take a particular course. It’s the school/training center that usually decides if they’re going to impose additional requirements on top of the basic requirements that TESDA requires, so it’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

    • Hi, Christine!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We don’t know much about the schools/training centers that offer TESDA courses, so we’re not really in the position to recommend a specific school or training center. We can give you the list of schools/training centers authorized to offer this course (including those in General Santos), though. You can probably ask around to see which one will be the best for you.

    • Hi, Angelyn!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      There are three schools/training centers in Cavite listed on TESDA’s list of institutions authorized to offer this course. You can find them on the link below:

      You can find the course duration on the post above, we’re just not sure how those hours are going to be divided into sessions. Unfortunately, we have no available information regarding the tuition fee. For that, it’s best if you’ll contact the school/training center directly so they can give you more accurate and detailed information.

    • Hi, Jovelyn!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      You can check out the list of schools/training centers authorized by TESDA to offer this course on the link below. A good number of these schools/training centers are private institutions, though, so there would probably be some fees involved.

      You might also want to try contacting the TESDA trainingn center in Bulacan. They might be offering free TESDA courses although we’re not sure if they have Massage Therapy there.

      Regional Training Center, Guiginto
      Mac Arthur Highway, Tabang, Guiginto Bulacan
      Address :Guiginto, Bulacan
      Tel. Nos. : (044) 794-0024/ (044) 794-4305

      Good luck! πŸ™‚

    • Hi, Maria!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      As much as we’d like to help you, we’re not familiar with the training centers ourselves so we don’t think we’re in the position to say which is the best among them. It’s best if you’ll ask someone who’s more familiar with them so they can give you a first-hand account of how those training centers are like.


  42. i am interested in taking the massage therapy ncII course.i live in bulacan san jose del monte.where is the nearest venue?and how much is the fee?do u still offer community training programs for free?thank u for ur response.i’ll be looking forward to it.
