Frequently Asked Questions

Does TESDA offer courses?

Technically, yes. However these qualifications need to be registered by partner schools and institutions, which they then offer to the public. The TESDA offices themselves do not give trainings for regular programs/qualifications (NC/COC). For inquiries about courses offered, costs, requirements, enrollment procedures etc., please direct them towards the schools/institutions that offer the course that you wish to apply for.

Does TESDA give free trainings?

TESDA has scholarship programs, which offer allowances and other benefits, but they have a limited number of slots. TESDA itself will not be the one administering these trainings, but the Technical Vocational Institutions (TVIs), depending on the qualification.
