TESDA online courses for OFW

Published

Some 68 courses of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) in the Cordillera that are available online can provide new skills or upgrade the skills of the 513 initial overseas Filipino worker (OFW) returnees.

Engr. Manuel Wong, TESDA-CAR regional director, said migrant workers can take advantage of the TESDA Online Program (TOP) to prepare them for local employment or livelihood, as well as equip them with skills for a new venture if they decide to return abroad.

“This is given free by the government,” he said over the weekend.

Wong said TESDA drum beat the promotion of the TOP during the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic to make people busy while locked in their homes.

“It will en-skill and re-skill our kababayans (fellow Filipinos) which they might be able to use because the jobs they had before the ECQ (enhanced community quarantine) are no longer relevant,” he said.
