      We’re sorry but we have no available information regarding the tuition fees of the different TESDA courses. You can use the link below to find schools or training centers that offer this course below, though. It’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.


  9. just want to ask, im a CAD operator for years, just want to take NCIII for competency,.what is the procedure is it necessary to enrol the CAD/CAM Operation? CAD is my basic subject of my course.FYI

    • Hi, Caryl!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      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.


  10. Sir/Madam:

    Good day.

    I just want to ask question on how to avail the scholarship on your school. I want to take up CAD / CAM Operation NCIII.
