I have stumbled upon a post from a newsfeed and found a post about TESDA (The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) where they offer free online courses at our own convenience.
I have heard about this before but did not really bother checking this 'til today when I found out they have A LOT of online courses to offer already. I am a proud product of TESDA, I am not a college graduate (so it's time for me to pay them back by spreading this news, hehe).
Back in 2009, I studied enrolled in a Finishing Course for Call Center Agents for a month in TUCP (Trade Union Congress of the Philippines) located in Quezon City. After the course, I worked as an inventory assistant for Pinkbox then applied in Sitel (my first call center home) after I finished my contract with Pinkbox.
I'm always proud to say that I am a product of TESDA, because of the course they offered, I now am work at a BPO-related job for about 6 years now. So I'm happy to know that they continue to offer courses to people who are interested. I just visited their website and created an account. I want to be able to finish the courses that I want to take.
The site is pretty easy to navigate and here's a step-by-step guide on how you can create an account to access their online courses:
1. CREATE AN ACCOUNT.
2. FILL OUT THE FORM WITH ALL NECESSARY INFORMATION.
I'm not sure if they are giving away certification after you finish the course but I have a strong feeling that they do. I just started enrolling for my course. I'm excited to learn more about it.
Those of you who might be interested, you may visit their website at e-tesda.gov.ph for more information.
