    • Hi, Jovelyn!

      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.


      • Good evening Madam/Sir,

        Thank you so much sa response nyo.
        nakita ko na po yung school pag ok na po lahat saka po ako mag iinquire sa kanila

        Maraming salamat po ulit..

        Happy New year! God bless πŸ™‚

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      As for the tuition fee, we’re sorry but we have no available information regarding the tuition fees for the different TESDA courses. You can find the list of schools/training centers that offer this course on the link above, though. It’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

  37. Thanks for posting this information. Any idea how much money I need for this course? I’ve heard it’s not free. Also, it says NC III, does that mean that it have prerequisites?

      As for your second question, there’s no Visual Graphic Design NC I or II listed on TESDA’s list of courses, so we’re guessing that means there are no prerequisites, at least from TESDA’s end. Schools have the authority to impose their own prerequisites, though, like some basic knowledge of the course you are going to enroll in before you can enroll, so it may vary.

    • Hi, Julian!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      There are currently no schools or training centers listed on the list of institutions authorized by TESDA to offer Visual Graphic Design NC III in Pampanga. We’re not sure if the list is updated, though, so you might want to check with the TESDA office nearest to be sure. While you’re at it, it will also be best if you’ll have them confirm the duration of the training so they can give you an accurate response.
