Tesda Courses List 2015, Enrollment Requirements

Looking for tesda courses to enroll with this 2015? I hope this article will again be able to help those who want to study certain course of choice. At first, it is really difficult to decide what course to take since just like most of us we are not fully aware about the list of tesda courses.

tesda courses list

Tesda offered courses are disseminated in different fields of specialization. There are programs that can help a student to land a job in the call center industry. There is caregiver course if students are aiming for job related to healthcare. The growth of mobile technology opens a lot of job opportunities to those who took up cellphone servicing course.

The increase in sales in the automotive would also generate jobs to those who specialized in automotive servicing. Construction industries now a day chooses those who have knowledge in masonry, plumbing, etc., to fill up their staffing requirements. Most of the job abroad also prefer applicants who have finished tesda courses or have previous experience in particular field of specialization such as 2G / 4G, SMAW, welding.

A barista can work in any coffee shops, restaurants, and establishments that offers food and beverage (F & B) in the Philippines and abroad.

In short, if a student was able to complete a vocational course with tesda, most likely they can easily find a job. According to TESDA, 7 out 10 of their graduates find a job easily and 9 out 10 employers are satisfied with their performance.

To help aspiring students decide what field to specialize, below are some of courses offered by this technical education branch of the goverment.

Tesda also offers online courses , there are total of 18 courses that aspiring individuals, professionals, and OFW can take. Tuition fee is free however, it does not come with certificate. If you want to have certificate, you need to visit the nearest assessment center and take the certification exam. If you passed, you can get the certificate. This offering requires course takers to have fast internet and a personal computer (laptop will do).

How many Hours or Months to Complete a Tesda Course

Tesda Courses last for days or months. This varies depending on the school that offers the course. If you are in a hurry, it would be efficient to list down all the schools near your location that offer the same program. Afterwards, compare which among them offers the shortest hours to complete the course.

Tesda Enrollment Requirements

I’ve made a separate post about the list of training centers that you can visit for your inquiry. Tesda has training centers all over the Philippines; Manila, Baguio, Batangas, Bicol, Bohol, Cavite, Cebu, Davao, Rizal, Laguna, IloIlo, Tacloban, Tagum, La Union, and many others.

tesda branch in manila

Tesda regulates private and public registered training institution. Both public and private institutions require students to be:

– at least 18 years of age
– high school graduate
– undergone a pre-training assessment (YP4SC/NCAE)
– Barangay Clearance (some asks for it)

However, if you wish to pursue training in private institutions, they may ask for additional requirements other than what was mentioned. It would be better that you visit their respective schools and inquire for other documents they may need.

Tesda Courses Tuition Fees

Private institutions also have varying tuition fees and that you should also ask about it to them. As I mentioned earlier, list down the schools near your place that offers the same program and compare which of them has the lowest tuition fee.

Once you know the respective tesda courses you want to take, completed the required documents, have enough money for the tuition fee, and decided on the schedule, go visit the school where you want to study your chosen course.

*I hope this helps
