    “Hi. im krishen, im 21 yrs.old. i was thinking, if makapasa po ako sa ALS, gusto ko pong magtake ng culinary. it is possible po bang may bayad un? lalo kapg sa TESDA 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.

    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 :)

  3. Em Nar

    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

      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!
    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!

    • courses.com.ph

      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.

      Hi, Lea!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      You can find the step-by-step procedure on how to apply for the assessment exam on this page and the list of authorized assessment centers on this one.

    good day

    thank you po

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Marianne!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      So far, we haven’t seen any training regulation that mentions anything about taking an entrance exam. We’re not too sure about that, though, so you might want to ask TESDA officials themselves to verify.

      Requirements may vary per school/training center, so it’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you the actual list.

    • courses.com.ph

      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.

  10. jhen

    if ever po tesda course po kc ung natake ko its associate in information technology which is 2 years if ever po na mag tuloy ako ng bs comsci macrecredit po ang mga bnatake ko na subject na under tesda?

    • admin

      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.

  13. Jonah Marie

    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!

  14. mark zyr rossini painagan

    may i take two courses at the same time?
    for example i want to take auto electrical NC III and auto mechanical NCII. is this possible?

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Mark!

      So far, we haven’t heard of any restrictions when it comes to the number of TESDA courses that you can take at the same time. We’re guessing you can as long as your schedules won’t overlap, but we’re not too sure about that. It’s still best if you’ll call TESDA for verification.

    I have learned from ABS CBN news that you help people from Tacloban when they affected by Typhoon by making a solar light.
    Do you have a copy of the drawing and materials needed on how to make a solar light. including where to buy the materials.

      Hi, Karen!

      As much as we’d like to help, we’re not affiliated with TESDA, so we’re not in the position to answer that question for you. We suggest you call up any of their offices so they can give you an accurate and more detailed reply.

  29. Jonalyn Madrid

    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!

    • courses.com.ph

      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.

      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.

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Jayson!

      Unfortunately, right now, land surveying courses are not yet part of the list of courses being offered by TESDA.

      We’re not sure if there have been any recent changes to that list, though, so you might want to call the nearest TESDA office to be sure.

    i’m a graduate of BSN(nursing 4 year course) do i still need to enroll NC II caregiver or just take the assessment exam and if i passed, can i request a NC II certificate? thank you and looking forward for your reply =)

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Matthew!

      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 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.

      Hi, Kenneth!

      Hi, Jay-ar!

      From what we know, TESDA has partnerships with companies that allow trainees to be hired right after passing their assessment exams.

      We’re not sure which particular courses their current partnerships apply to, though, so you might want to check with TESDA directly so they can give you a more accurate and detailed reply.

    • courses.com.ph

      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.

      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).

    what is the importance of taking the NCII?

    • courses.com.ph

      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.

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

    • courses.com.ph

      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.
