      Hi Jean,

      I think you should inquire directly to the tesda accredited school that offers call center course. You can start searching for schools using the official website of tesda.

    Hello!. I’m interested in “English Proficiency for Customer Service Workers” but I’m not sure what kind of course is this because I just want to improve my English Level since I’m an ESL teacher. I hope you can address my concern. Thanks!
