    • Hi, Niño,

      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, Hayford!

      We’re sorry, but we’re not really sure about that. So far, we haven’t heard of any foreigners taking this course, but maybe you could get in touch with TESDA to see if that’s going to be possible. You can e-mail them at

      Good luck!

    • Hi, Jeffrey!

      From what we’ve seen on job advertisements placed by employers based overseas, a good number of them does recognize certificates issued by the Philippine government. Requirements may vary depending on the employer’s preferences or laws that govern the locality where the company operates, though, so we’re not too sure about that.

      We suggest you contact your target employer or the agency that recruits potential workers for them so they can give you a detailed and more accurate response. 🙂

  14. Where can I start the training in material handling equipment in TESDA and when?
