TESDA held a FREE national competency assessment and certification exam last March 28 to April 2 at the various TESDA regional centers nationwide. I did not know there was such activity of TESDA until my friend in Butuan told me on Marh 30th. I was busy at school attending my Finals and then had a week of vacay in Mindanao so I had no time visiting websites that I regularly visit such as TESDA’s. I accessed their website right away and learned that this is one of their major event for this year; Free National Competency Assessment and Certification. I have been wanting to take the exam for Bookkeeping Exam Certification NC-III. Last year, the scheduled exam was postponed and I begged off last month because my VL was not approved. This certification seems so elusive!
Congratulation to all passers!
You guys are now certified on whatever-field-you-have-taken!
Good news to all of us who were not able to take the exam: TESDA will conduct another two batches of exam this year. In June and October. So watch out and review! Even if this is for free it is still better to pass it during the first take.
Among the exams offered are the ff:
- Computer Hardware Servicing NC II
- Food and Beverage Services NC II
- Housekeeping NC II
- Electrical Installation and Maintenance NC II
- Automotive Servicing NC II
- Shielded Metal Arc Welding NC II
- Bread and Pastry Production NC II
- Driving NC II
- And many more!
I think it depends upon the Regional Center what exams to offer so contact TESDA nearest you to check if your desired one is included.
