    • Hi, James!

      From what we have been advised in the past, 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, Alfredo!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry but we’re not affiliated with TESDA, so we have no available information regarding the fees that will be collected. It’s best if you’ll contact the TESDA office directly so they can answer that question for you.
