    I am interested in enrolling for a bartending course. I went to the main office of TESDA at E Service Road and was informed that bartending classes there is for women only. Then I was referred to an accredited school in Taguig (where I live) but the receptionist at the school told me that they have no bartending classes on going for now. Do you have a list of other accredited schools near Taguig that offer bartending class? Is it also possible to choose a schedule of the class because I am currently working. Thanks in advance!

    • Hi, Isa!

      Requirements may vary depending on the training center you are thinking of enrolling at, so it’s best if you ask them directly so they can give you a more accurate and detailed reply.

      You can use this tool from TESDA by typing in the name of the course you want to take then clicking “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.

      If you don’t have any particular course in mind yet, you can also use the same tool to search for training centers near your location. Just choose the “Search by School” option then type in your preferred location.

      Thanks for visiting the site.

      We’re sorry but all we know are the usual requirements required by most schools/training centers. You can find those on the post above. For the specific requirements as well as the tuition fee, it’s best if you’ll contact the school/training center you are thinking of enrolling at so they can give you a more accurate and detailed response.


  18. hi,is an ordinary high school graduate is also eligible to take these tesda courses?

    • Hi, Stela!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      TESDA only requires applicants to be at least high school graduates in order to enroll; however, schools or training centers have the authority to impose additional requirements such as a higher educational attainment, so it would depend on them. For best results, try to contact the school or training center you’re planning to enroll at so they can give you an accurate response.
