Bertiz, in his message encouraged them to avail of the free 150 TESDA Online Program courses that are useful in re-tooling, upskilling and reskilling of OFWs, and provides training and livelihood programs for OFWs and their families.
“Through these programs, we aim to prepare our Filipino workers — wherever they are — to become highly-skilled and globally-competitive, and who can adapt to the ever-changing demand of the industry,” he said.
Bertiz said TESDA, together with its partner agencies and the private sector, has other programs for OFWs which includes the OFW Reintegration for Skills Employment.
He also lauded the PEAK Pinoy Program, or the Promoting Entrepreneurship and Agri-business to OFWs in South Korea, which aims to provide entrepreneurship and agribusiness seminars for Filipinos in Korea. He likewise expressed his support for this initiative.
