Just like the other 200 plus tesda courses, the duration and the tuition fee for the commercial cooking course depends on the school. There are lots of accredited schools that offer the said course, students just have to choose the right one for them. They have to consider the location, the reputation of the school, the duration, and the tuition fee.
