TESDA Courses in the Philippines: Frequently Asked Questions


We get a lot of questions regarding the different TESDA courses, so for your convenience, we compiled the most frequently asked of them and listed them on this page.

Below is the list of common questions people interested in taking TESDA courses ask.

I live in _______, where I can I enroll?

TESDA courses are offered by the different Technical Vocational Institutions (TVIs) authorized by TESDA. To find the school or training center nearest to your place, you can use this tool from the TESDA Website. Just type in the name of the course you want then click “search.”

How much is the tuition fee?

The tuition fee depends on the school/training center offering the course. Most of the institutions directly administered or in direct partnership with TESDA offer the courses for free; private schools and training centers usually offer them for a fee. For the actual amount, it’s best if you’ll contact them directly to be sure.

When can I enroll?

The enrollment schedule, just like tuition fees and other specific rules and regulations, depends on the school/training center offering the course. For the actual schedule, it’s best if you’ll contact them directly to be sure.

How long is the training duration?

Training duration varies per course; however, you can find the minimum training duration if you click on the specific TESDA course that you are interested in. Please note that it is just the minimum training duration and might actually last longer depending on the school or training center offering the course.

What is the training schedule for this specific TESDA course?

The training schedule, just like tuition fees and other specific rules and regulations, depends on the school/training center offering the course. For the actual schedule, it’s best if you’ll contact them directly to be sure.

How can I contact the school or training center offering the course?

Using this tool from TESDA, type in the name of the course you want to take then click “search” (please note that pressing “enter” would return zero results). After the list of the schools or training centers offering the course came up, click the “view courses authorized” option. After that, the address and contact information of the school or training center would appear.

What are the requirements for admission?

Common requirements for TESDA courses include: copy of Birth Certificate authenticated by NSO, copy of high school or college diploma, certified True Copy of Transcript of Records, 1×1 Pictures, and Certificate of Good Moral Character.

Requirements, however, may vary depending on the institution you are going to enroll at, so we strongly suggest you get in touch with the school or training center’s official representatives for more accurate and detailed information.

Do I need to finish a certain course or undergo a certain training before I can enroll in this TESDA course?

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.

Can I enroll in a TESDA course even if I’m not a high school graduate?

Different schools and courses have different requirements, so it’s best if you’ll check with the school or training center that offers the course to see if they require a high school diploma prior to admission.

On a side note, if you need a high school diploma but do not have the time or means to finish high school the traditional way, you might want to check our articles on the Alternative Learning System program to see if it will work for you.

Does TESDA offer any scholarship programs?

From what we know, TESDA offers scholarship programs every year; however, we’re not quite sure for which particular courses and how many slots are available. For that it’s best if you’ll contact TESDA directly so they can give you a more accurate and detailed response.

How can I get a TESDA certificate?

To get a TESDA certificate, you’ll need to pass the assessment exam for the skill you’re trying to get certified in. For example, those who want to become certified welders can take the assessment exams for any of the welding-related courses that TESDA offers. Depending on your skills, you can choose to take the NC  I, II, III, or IV exam.

What does NC mean?

NC stands for National Certification. A national certification is given once you’ve successfully demonstrated that you have the necessary skills and knowledge to perform the tasks carried out by a certain professional like a welder or a crane operator, for example.

What are the differences among NC I, II, III, and IV?

The numbers after National Certification indicate the level of expertise of an NC holder.

For example, an NC IV holder is generally more skilled than an NC III holder the same way an NC II holder is generally considered to be more skilled than an NC I holder.

Am I required to take the first level of a specific course before I can move on to the next one?

According to the TESDA official we spoke with, completing the first level of a specific course is not required from individuals who wish to take a more advanced level; however, they strongly encourage that you try to study the basics first so you will be well-prepared for the more advanced lessons. Accredited schools or training centers have the liberty to impose their own rules, though, so you might want to contact them directly to be sure.

Am I required to enroll in the classes before I can take the assessment / certification exam? 

According to the TESDA official we spoke with, enrolling in the classes is optional. If you’re confident that you already have the knowledge and skills you’ll need, you can go ahead and take the exam immediately.

We’re not sure if all TESDA offices implement the same rule, though, so you might still want to contact the office nearest your place to be sure.

I’ve been working as a professional <insert job here> for several years now. Can I skip the training sessions and use the experience I accumulated to obtain a certification from TESDA instead?

From what we know, you can, but you still have to take and pass the assessment exam first. That’s just from what we know, though, so you might still want to verify that with TESDA to be sure.

How do I apply for assessment and certification?

You can find the general requirements and procedures in applying for assessment and certification on TESDA’s website. For other frequently asked questions regarding assessment and certifications, you may refer to this page.

Where can I take the assessment exam for ___?

You can find the list of accredited assessment centers by visiting this page.

Does TESDA offer online classes?

It does; however, for now, the available courses are still pretty limited. You can find the list of online courses offered by TESDA on their website.

How do I sign up for the online courses?

“In order to access the available courses in the TESDA Online Program website, you must first register an account. For detailed steps “on how to register and enroll in a course, please refer to the “How To” section of the website. - TESDA

Do I need to pay tuition in order to enroll for the online courses? 

“The TESDA Online Program is available for FREE, you do not have to pay tuition in order for you to access the courses.” - TESDA

Can I take the assessment exam online?

“The TESDA Online Program is in incubation stage. We are not yet giving any training certificate. To be given a training certificate, the online learner needs to complete online assessment which is yet to be developed; however, once you finish the course and if you think you are ready, you may take the face-to-face assessment for National Certification at any TESDA accredited assessment center or venue.” - TESDA

The <insert name of course here> is not on your list. How can I enroll?

Unfortunately, the course you mentioned is not included in TESDA’s current list of programs offered by registered vocational institutions. We’re not sure if there have been any changes to that list, though, so you might want to check with TESDA to be sure.

When is the next assessment exam?

We’re sorry, but we have no available information regarding the schedule of the TESDA exams. It’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

The contact number of the TESDA office nearest my place doesn’t seem to be working. Do you have other contact numbers?

Unfortunately, most of the information we post on the site were from publicly accessible materials, so we’re not always sure how updated the information is. The best option that we can think of at this point is to call the main office of TESDA to ask. They might have the updated contact information.

    • Hi, Alvin!

      From what we have been advised in the past, if you already have sufficient experience and you are confident that you can pass the assessment exam for a particular TESDA course, you can skip the classes and jump right ahead to taking the exam. We’re not sure if that applies to all courses or if there have been any changes in the process, though, so you might want to check with TESDA to be sure.

  18. Good day!

    Sir/Ma’am, I would like to ask if it’s possible to get my certificate without the paper given by the staff in the office that day. I already passed the assessment exam, but I fail to go back to get my certificate on the given date. Thank you, hope to hear from you soon.

  22. Divine says:

    I have passed the NCII assessment exam last 2006. Is it still valid or I need to take an exam again? Thanks.

    • Hi, Divine!

      NCs are only valid for five years, so it has already expired. You can just go to the TESDA office that issued your certificate to have it renewed, though. Unless new training regulations have been implemented since the time you took the assessment exam, there’s no need to go through one again.

  45. what is the importance of taking the NCII?

    • Hi, Cehz!

      The purpose of awarding national certificates is to certify that their holders have the necessary skills and knowledge to handle different jobs. Many companies require applicants to present NCs prior to being considered for a position because it means they have been properly assessed — and their performance were found to be satisfactory — by recognized authorities in their respective fields.

  46. Mayeen Ilagan says:

    May I know if TESDA has accredited schools already or training centers where Individuals with special needs (SPED/PWD) can be trained?

    thank You.

    • Hi, Mayeen!

      So far, we haven’t heard of a training center equipped to accommodate individuals with special needs, but that’s just what we know.

      We suggest you either contact TESDA directly so they can give you a more accurate and detailed reply, or you check the page below to see if schools/institutions known for accommodating people with special needs are also authorized to offer TESDA courses (please ensure that you click “search” as hitting “enter” would return zero results).

      Just scroll down to the “Training Regulations” sub-category, click “File,” to download the document, then look for “Trainee Entry Requirements.”

    • Hi, Donna!

      From what we know, TESDA offers scholarship programs for different courses every year; however, the slots are usually limited and are awarded on a first come, first served basis.

      There’s a possibility that the alloted slots for this year have already been awarded to other people, so you might have to wait for the next batch.

      That’s just a possible explanation, though. We’re not sure if that’s actually the case, so it’s still best if you’ll ask TESDA directly so they can give you a more accurate and detailed response.

    • Hi, Matthew!

We’re not sure if that applies to all courses or if there have been any changes in the process, though, so you might want to check with TESDA to be sure.

    Hi there,
    My sister in law is planning to enroll at one of the TESDA centres for Caregiver course in Negros Occidental. Can you please advise how much would be the tuition fee for the whole program?

    • Hi, Annie!

      The tuition fee depends on the school/training center offering the course. For the exact amount, it’s best if you’ll contact them directly to be sure.

  70. Hello po,

    Ask ko Lang service industry how long po ung training ? How much po?


    • Hi, Fe!

      Training duration varies per training center, so we suggest you call up the training center you are thinking of enrolling at so they can give you a more accurate reply.

  71. Aira San Diego says:

  72. ovic hepiga says:

    what is the age requirement for my nephew to apply for tesda courses., care to reply. thanks.

    • Hi, Ovic!

      Minimum age requirement is usually set at 18 years of age. We’re not sure if that applies to all courses, though, so you might still want to check with TESDA to be sure.

  73. Good day po!

    Ask ko lng po kung my bayad po ba if kukuha ako ng programming course in tesda? ALS grad. po ako.

    I`m living at bicutan taguig po!

    Thanks po!

    • Hi, Jonalyn!

      It depends on where you’re going to enroll at. Training centers directly managed by TESDA usually offer courses for free; private training centers authorized by TESDA to offer courses usually collect fees. TESDA does have some programming courses that they offer online for free, although we’re guessing it’s not as comprehensive as Programming NC IV.

  74. Good evening! Ask kulang kung magkano yung tuition sa aircraft mechanic sa TESDA? At ilang months or years yung schooling? At anung lugar sa Luzon area Lang po! Give me all the information, thanks!

    Hi TESDA,

    I’m Jonah and I work here in Iloilo City. I was wondering if your agency offers a Culinary Course for FREE? I’d love to enroll in this program, even if it’s only part time, if you permit.

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Best regards!

    • Hi Jhen,

      Great Question!
      We don’t have a definite answer though – unfortunately. As far as I remember, this was in the works already between CHED and TESDA a couple of years ago.
      But we haven’t heard anything final about it. We suggest you contact the school you’d like to take BS Comsci (in the future) in and ask them if they could do that.

    • Hi, Dee!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      That might depend on which course you’re planning to take. From what we’ve seen so far, there are some TESDA courses that do not require college degrees. The requirements vary per school/training center, though, so it’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you a more accurate response.

    Good Day po!
    May Age Limit po ba para sa Aircraft Maintenance Courses?
    54 Years Old na po kasi ako, pero Sheetmetal Worker po ako dati sa Middleeast, kaya lang hindi po sa Aircraft.
    Gusto ko pong matuto ng Sheetmetal Works sa Aircraft po.

    Maraming Salamat po!

    • Hi, Deogracias!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We haven’t seen any maximum age requirements for TESDA courses so far, but we’re not really sure about that, so it would be best if you’ll call schools that are offering this course directly so they can give you a more accurate response.

  99. Em Nar says:

    If ever po kukuha ako ng Culinary na mayroon 10 days lamang, may certificate na po ba kagad yun? Syaka ano po yung may 6 years? Ano rin po yung mga short courses?

    • Em Nar says:

      6 Months*

    • Hi, Em!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      It would depend on the school or training center offering the course. If it’s affiliated with TESDA, then you would have to take the corresponding national certification assessment exam before you can get a certificate. If it’s not, there’s a possibility that they may issue their own certificate, but it might not be as credible as those issued by TESDA.

      The training duration of TESDA courses depends on the complexity of the course, so the easier ones may only take as short as three days to complete, while the more complicated ones may take up to as long as six months to one years to finish.

      You can use the links below to find a list of available TESDA courses and where you can take them.

    Good day po! Balak ko po sanang kumuha ng BS Architecture. Advisable po bang kumuha muna ng TESDA courses related to my college program? And if yes, anu-ano po ba ang mga courses na maaaring makatulong sa akin? Para po sana may background na ako and experience bago man lang sumabak sa college at para na rin po maging advantage ko siya. For future purposes na rin po. Sana po matulungan niyo ako :)

    • Hi, Krishen!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      It depends on the course. Courses that are offered by vocational institutions directly managed by TESDA are often offered for free; however, there are instances where students have to pay a minimal fee for the equipment and materials that they will be using during the course of their training.
