We’re sure you’ve encountered the “Top Three Course in College” trend on Facebook. For some, it would be easy to answer but others are still undecided. The course you would take is likely linked to the career path you would take in the future--a tough choice to make indeed. For the millennials, this is one nostalgic question as it brings up the “what ifs”.
Learn at Your Own Pace
To help you decide on the course you would take, or even relive the dream you once had and still want to pursue, the The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), offers an Online Program that can help you.
The TESDA Online Program (TOP) is an open educational resource aiming to make technical education more accessible to Filipino citizens. This is created for students, out-of-school youth, unemployed adults, local and overseas workers, and even professionals who would like to take the courses at their own pace. This online program is free and void of any fees. Just register online at the TESDA website to access the materials.
Learning New Skills
TESDA offers different courses depending on your liking. If you want to improve your cooking skills and possibly make a career out of it, TESDA has a Processed Food and Beverages course which has several modules you can study. Under its Tourism course, there are Bread and Pastry, Cookery, and even Housekeeping.
Interested in Agriculture or Entrepreneurship? They can help you with that, too! TESDA also offers other technical skills like Electrical and Electronics, Automotive, and Information and Communications Technology. And if you’re into business, learn the basics through their Entrepreneurship course.
The learning materials are all available online. Once you’ve finished the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Should you think you are ready, you may take the face-to-face assessment for National Certification at any TESDA accredited assessment center or venue.
It’s always a good idea to learn something new. So if you’re trying to find ways to spend your time wisely, the TESDA Online Program will be worth it.
