    • Hi, Oliver!

      To get a TESDA certificate, you’ll need to pass the assessment exam for the skill you’re trying to get certified in. For example, those who want to become certified welders can take the assessment exams for any of the welding-related courses that TESDA offers. Depending on your skills, you can choose to take the NC I, II, III, or IV exam.

      Unfortunately, right now there are no training centers in Sta. Rosa listed on TESDA’s list of institutions authorized to offer this course. We’re not sure if there have been any recent changes to that list, though, so you might want to call the nearest TESDA office to be sure.

      There’s a TESDA training center in Binangonan, Rizal. We’re just not sure if they offer Plumbing NC I. We also don’t have available information regarding the fees and schedule, so It’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.
