  1. Hello po.. sa lahat po ba ng tesda. My course photography? Panu po ba mag enroll sa tesda..Pwede po ba sa online? Khit Maaga palang mag enroll na?

    • Hi, Leovelyn!

      Not really. Available courses may vary per school, so it’s best if you’ll check with the nearest TESDA center to see if they are offering the course that you are interested in.

      You can enroll by going to the nearest TESDA-accredited center and submitting the required documents. Admission requirements vary depending on the school or training center that you will apply at, but they usually include the following: copy of Birth Certificate authenticated by NSO, copy of High school or College Diploma, certified true copy of Transcript of Records, 1×1 Pictures, and Certificate of Good Moral Character.

      Yes, you can enroll online, but, currently, the number of available courses is still limited so you might want to browse around for the course that you want.

      We’re not sure about early enrollment. We suggest you get in touch with the school you are thinking of enrolling at so they can give you a more accurate reply.

    • Hi, Neil!

      We’ve seen companies based overseas that list TESDA certificates as one of their employment requirements, so we’re guessing yes, although that may still vary per company.

      We were advised that you can take the NC exam without necessarily enrolling in the classes, so you can probably just go ahead and take the NC exam so you can get your certificate.

      We’re not really sure about that. You can find the list of training centers authorized to offer TESDA courses on this page, though.


  23. I would like to Ask. If the course can also be applicable for students that are studying in other colleges

    • Hi, Shannen!

      As far as we know, TESDA doesn’t have any rules against people who are currently enrolled in other institutions from enrolling in any of their training centers. We’re not too sure about private schools or training that have been authorized by TESDA to offer TESDA courses, though, so you might want to check with the school or training center that you are thinking of enrolling at so they can give you a more accurate reply.


  24. Tumawag po ko sa informatics around 6k plus un tuition fee 15 hrs un training kailangan atlis 5 participants para open ang class. Sa sm megamall un school nila pwede kayo call sa kanila #635-3608

  25. good afternoon sir pwede po bang mag-enrol sa course na photography ang hindi high school graduate?

    • Hi, Jessirie!

      Different schools and courses have different requirements, so it’s best if you’ll check with the school or training center that offers the course to see if they require a high school diploma prior to admission.

      On a side note, if you need a high school diploma but do not have the time or means to finish high school the traditional way, you might want to check our articles on the Alternative Learning System program to see if it will work for you.

          Thanks for visiting our site.

          As far as we know, there’s no Photography NC I, III, and IV; only NC II. It’s best if you’ll call TESDA if you want to be sure, though.

          Good luck! 🙂
