TESDA Courses in the Philippines



In the past, vocational courses were mostly taken by students who do not have the financial means to pursue a four or five-year course  or those who haven’t figured out what they really want so they’re testing the waters first; however, thanks to the introduction of TESDA courses in the Philippines and the increasing demand for skilled workers both here and overseas, that trend has changed since.

If you’re not familiar with them yet, below is an overview of TESDA courses and how they can help you.

Description

TESDA courses are short vocational courses that were designed to help people acquire the skills necessary to carry out tasks associated with specific jobs or crafts. TESDA courses cover a wide array of expertise including engineering, health sciences, computer and information technology, business, and agriculture to name a few. Duration of the courses vary depending on the number and complexity of the skills you are expected to learn and demonstrate.

Technical Vocational Institutions

Technical Vocational Institutions (TVIs) are schools or training centers that are authorized to offer TESDA courses. Most of these are schools or training centers that have applied each of their courses for TESDA registration, but some of them are directly administered by TESDA itself or in partnership with a government institution. TVIs that are directly administered by TESDA usually offers TESDA courses for free or at a much lower price than TVIs that are not directly connected to TESDA.

Assessment and Certification

Certificates issued by TESDA are recognized by employers in the Philippines and abroad, so having one can be an advantage when seeking employment.

To obtain a TESDA certificate, you will need to pass the national certification exam for a specific skill like welding or electrical maintenance and installation for example. Assessment Centers for the different TESDA Courses all over the country are regularly accredited for this purpose.

Most of the time, you will be encouraged to complete specific TESDA courses before taking the exam in order to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to pass it, but if you already have plenty of professional experience and can demonstrate the same level of competencies as graduates of TESDA courses, you may be allowed to skip the training part and go straight to the assessment and certification part instead.

Career Opportunities

Plenty of career opportunities are open to graduates of TESDA courses, especially overseas where the demand for skilled workers is often high. You can find some examples of jobs that TESDA graduates can apply for on our article about in demand jobs in the Philippines and abroad.

Admission Requirements

Admission requirements vary depending on the school or training center that you will apply at, but they usually include the following: 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.

Online Courses

People who cannot afford to attend traditional classes can now take TESDA courses online. By registering on their website, you can have access to different modules that will teach you how to perform specific tasks. The online program is still in the development stage, though, so only certain courses are available online and they do not facilitate online assessment yet.

    • Hi, Mary Jean!

      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.

      #2 Unfortunately, right now, safety officer 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.
