  4. My nephew is looking for a particular school in Cebu that offers dental technician course… Is there any?

    • Hi, Ruth!

      Unfortunately, there are no training centers in Cebu that is listed on TESDA’s list of training centers authorized to offer this course. 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.


  5. Interesting. Hindi ito school based. Makakapagexam kaya as dental technologist pag natapos sa TESDA?
