Learners that are able to complete a specific training should take the assessment exam given by TESDA. Assessment centers are available nationwide. If they passed, they can have the National Certificate (NC) which represents the seal of excellence from the said educational agency. Aside from acquiring the certificate, tesda will also included the passer’s name on its database to allow employers to see them.

For more information, you can watch the news report from GMA News Youtube channel

Tesda graduates that have National Certificate ( NC ) can now apply to local companies to gain work experience.

If they already have numerous work experiences they can also give it a try to apply directly to POEA accredited manpower agencies that deploy skilled workers abroad. Graduates who successfully land a job abroad can earn US dollars ranging from $650 to $750 or even as much as Php 100,000 per month depending on the job they are hired for.

  • Matt

    Hi Karl e, anyone can study in tesda. The basic requirement to study a tech-voc course is just high school diploma. If you want to study SMAW, I suggest that you visit the official website of tesda and search for the accredited school that offers SMAW in Caloocan. For sure there is a handful of schools offering the course in your city.

    Afterward, you need to call directly to the school to inquire about the tuition fee, class schedule, specific requirements aside from high school diploma. Good luck!
