    • Hi, Daniel!

      If you’re going to enroll in the course, you might have to, although that may depend on the training center. Additionally, we have been advised in the past that 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, Bhong!

      We’re sorry but we’re not really sure about that. That would probably depend on the requirements of the school or training center you intend to enroll at, so we suggest you get in touch with them so they can give you proper advice.

      • My training program po bah ng electrical installation para sa mga under graduate ng high school?

  24. Sir/Maam, good day po. Ang examination po ba nitong course hands on po ba? At ilang days po ba to?

    • Hi, Juraile!

      From what we know, some TESDA exams are a mixed of written and practical tests. The exam for this course seems to be mostly practical, though.
      We’re not too sure about the days. For that, it’s best if you’ll contact the training center directly so they can give you an accurate reply.

    • Hi Leofel,

      According to the TESDA official we spoke with, enrolling in the course is not a requirement in taking the assessment exam – so yes you can take the NCII exam.
      But they strongly encourage the students to enroll in the course first to catch up on the things they might have missed/they might miss.

    • Hi, Marlon!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re not really sure about that. It’s best if you’ll contact the assessment center that issued the certificate so they can give you an accurate response.


  30. I inquired this afternoon in Tesda iloilo, they offer electrical installation and maintenance course but they have an enrollment fee of around 8500 pesos. Why???????I thought it is free. I thought Tesda helps the poor to gain courses for free.

    • Hi, Rameses!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry to hear that… Unfortunately, we’re not affiliated with TESDA so we’re not in the position to answer that question for you. You might want to communicate your sentiments to official TESDA representatives so they can address your concern. Hopefully, they might be able to suggest more affordable alternatives.


  31. Question lang po,. . Do we realy neEd to have the recoMendatioN of the training schoOl/training center to take the NC2 Test for electricAl and maintanaNce?

    • Hi, John!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      From what we know, recommendations from schools or training centers are not necessary most of the time. Different assessment centers may have different policies, though, so you might want to contact them directly to be sure.


  32. maam/sir

    anu po yung requirements para po maka enroll sa electrical installations and maintenance NC-II

    thanks po

  33. competent po ba yung school para sa electrician yung malapit sa taguig municipal nag inquire po kase ako don po eh

    • Hi, Reynold!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry, but as much as we’d like to answer that question, we’re not really familiar with the individual schools/training centers authorized by TESDA to offer their courses. Why don’t you try to search the name of the school you’re referring to on the internet? With luck, you might see some people who have personally experienced studying there.


  34. Sir/Madam,

    For inquires!

    May i know what exact day’s the course will be done? i am also willing to take this course, 402hrs. is enough to learn all the topics to be taken?

    I would be most appreciative if you could find the time to answer my questions.

    Thanks and Best Regards.

    • Hi, Dan!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry, but we have no available information regarding the schedule of the TESDA classes/training. It’s best if you’ll call them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

      As for your second question, the hours indicated are just the minimum number of hours allotted for the training. It may or may not take more hours than that to complete the course. You might need to check that with the school to be sure.


  35. updated na po ba ung mga nag asessment nitong 2012?

  36. Sir/maam saan po ba ang pinaka malapit na school for electrical Installation and maintenance ? Im from C5 taguig. Sa guadalupe (IETI) po kc ang offer lng nila 60hrs lang ? kailangan po db 402hrs to complete ? sana po matulungan nio ako. salamat

      • Sir/mam
        my school dito po sa amin na nag offer sila ng electrical installation & maintenace II for 30 hrs
        ok po ba un kc wla nman po ako mkita dito nag offer ng 402 hrs ok na po ba ung 30 hrs pra maipasa ung nc 2 sa tesda…thank’s po

        • Hi, Enteng!

          Thanks for visiting our site.

          According to TESDA, students have the option of taking the test without attending any classes, so if you’ve had plenty of relevant experience in the past and you’re confident of your skills, that should not be much of a problem. If you haven’t had much experience in it, though, 200 plus hours worth of extra lessons might probably help.

          We haven’t personally taken the test, though, so we can’t tell for sure. The decision is up to you. 🙂

          Also, have you already checked TESDA’s list of schools/training centers that offer this course? There might be one near your location that offers full 402 hours worth of lessons.

          Good luck! 🙂

  37. do you offer a master electrician and Industrial Mechatronics Package courses. thanks.
