  2. Do you have shoe making crash courses for working individuals who only have weekend rest days, and so would only have 2 days a week to attend classes, or after work..

There is a 3 yr Footwear Manufacturing Technology Course that is being offered in Marikina, though. If you’re interested, you can find the training center’s contact information on this page:

    • Hi, Thessa!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      From what we know, it’s the school/training center that you’re going to enroll at that facilitates the registration. You just need to comply with their requirements. Unfortunately, there’s currently no school listed on TESDA’s list of schools/training centers authorized to offer this course. We’re not sure if the list is updated, though, so you might want to contact TESDA directly to be sure.

  11. kailan po ang schedule footwear making.interesado po ko.
