Empowering the Workforce through Certification

In the dynamic landscape of the Philippine job market, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) stands as a beacon for skill development and certification. At the core of TESDA’s initiatives is the Philippine TVET Competency Assessment and Certification System (PTCACS), a mechanism designed to evaluate and certify the competencies of middle-level skilled workers.

The Certification Process Unveiled

Assessment and Certification Standards

The assessment process under PTCACS aims to ascertain whether graduates or workers can meet workplace standards defined by competency standards. Certification is the accolade bestowed upon those who meet these rigorous standards. This meticulous process ensures the productivity, quality, and global competitiveness of the middle-level workforce.

Registry of Certified Workers

TESDA maintains a Registry of Certified Workers, a comprehensive database providing information on certified workers across various occupations nationwide. This registry serves as a valuable resource for employers seeking skilled professionals.

Accredited Assessment Centers and Competency Assessors

TESDA’s commitment to maintaining high assessment standards is facilitated through accredited assessment centers and competent assessors. These centers, distributed strategically, conduct competency assessments for individuals seeking certification.
