BRIEF HISTORY OF IFUGAO
Ifugao is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Covering a total land area of 262,820 hectares, the province of Ifugao is located in a mountainous region characterized by rugged terrain, river valleys, and massive forests. Its capital is Lagawe and borders Benguet to the west, Mountain Province to the north, Isabela to the east, and Nueva Vizcaya to the south.
It is named after the term “i-pugo” which means “i” (from/people) and “pugo” (hill), thus people of the hill. The Banaue Rice Terraces is the main tourist attraction in the province. These 2000-year old terraces were carved into the mountains, without the aid of machinery, to provide level steps where the natives can plant rice. In 1995, they were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The TESDA Provincial Training Center sits in one hectare lot donated by the Provincial Government. The building was constructed in 1991 and occupied thereafter.
In line with the Provincial Skills Priorities of the province, the center conducts training and competency assessments in automotive related competencies and construction related qualifications such as Carpentry, Masonry, Electrical Installation, Gas Metal Arc Welding and Shielded Metal Arc Welding.

TESDA Ifugao participated in the Serbisyo Caravan led by the DILG-Asipulo Municipal Task Force at Barangay Pula, Asipulo, Ifugao last September 28, 2021. This was attended by the ELCAC-Provincial Task Force members from different agencies of the 12 line cluster and Provincial Local Government Unit (PLGU). This activity aims to advocate and present the PTF-ELCAC programs, projects and activities.
The staff of Provincial Training Center-Ifugao and Provincial Office-Ifugao led by Engr. Eduardo O. Tamayao, center administrator of PTC-Ifugao, advocated the programs and services of TESDA.
The TESDA staff discussed the essence of skills training, scholarship program benefits and requirements to become a TESDA scholar.
The Serbisyo Caravan will be an avenue to reach out to the Retooled Community Support Program (RCSP) as prioritization of target barangays to familiarize and be knowledgeable of the needs, concerns and peculiarities of the barangay development program.
This program aims to bridge the gap between the government and the barangays that were already cleared with communist terrorist groups (CTG) through the whole nation approach of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC).
