Iloilo has 60 TESDA Specialistas
posted 22-May-2012  ·  
Iloilo province has 60 specialists in various technical vocational courses certified by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority-6 (TESDA).

These specialistas, according to TESDA-6 Information Officer Bernadette Puertas are beneficiaries of the TESDA Specialista Technopreneurship Program (TSTP) which credits Tech-Voc graduates as licensed in their respective fields.

The 60 have been trained in partnership with their local government units and the training institutions identified in the community.

TESDA records showed that In Iloilo City, there are 10 specialistas trained by the Professional Electronics Institute in appliance repair services; 10 by the KRYZ Culinary Arts Institute, in Hotel and Restaurant Management Services; 10 by the Technical Institute of Iloilo City in Building/House Repair and Maintenance Services; 3 by the WCU Training and Development Center in Household Services; and 3 by the St. Augustine School of Nursing, in Health Care Services.

In Iloilo province, the town of Oton has 4 specialistas trained by EDSF Alternative Medicine and Rehabilitation and Training Center in Massage Therapy and Hilot Wellness.

In Passi City, 10 specialistas were trained by Passi Trade School in Automotive Servicing, while the town of Mina has 10 trained by Mina Skills Training Center in Building House Repair and Maintenance Services.

The TSTP is aimed at increasing the number of employed citizens and give the specialistas the opportunity to run their own livelihood and income-generating activities through skills and tools given them by TESDA.

Graduates of the different tech-voc courses are supposed to apply at the designated TESDA Accreditation Centers and pass all the tests required.

Once they pass the tests, they are required to apply for a National Certificate (NC) which will serve as their License or Certificate of Competency (COC).

TESDA said the local government units as partners are to make a checklist of these specialistas and recommend those qualified to take the tests for COC, to help these qualified citizens find a better and comparatively sustainable livelihood.
