Tesda Online Program (TOP) has gained at least 19,968 registered users since it was launched last May and has already garnered 553,583 page views. Tesda ?Specialista? Griselle Claveria, who took the Computer Hardware Servicing NC II online, is presently employed in Singapore. Another Tesda ?Specialista,? Jhonathan Luzano, a former sales promoter, also gained a job as a laptop and computer technician after finishing his online course and passing the national competency assessment. Initially, four online courses are available under the TOP, namely, the Computer Hardware Servicing NC II, Room Attendant Servicing NC II, a core competency of the Housekeeping NC II and Cellphone Servicing which is one of the competencies of the Consumer Electronics Servicing NC II. Tesda said the government is targeting to offer a total of ten courses within the year as part of the continuous development of its online education program. At the same time, the agency encouraged interested Filipinos to hone and gain more skills under the Tesda Mobile Training plus (Park and Train). Launched last February, the Mobile Training plus is the government?s innovative approach to bring the training services to the grassroots level. The Mobile Training plus complements the classroom trainings given by Tesda through its partner institutions. It also showcases the strong public-private partnership between the agency and the private donors, which provide vehicles that were converted into mobile learning centers. The Mobile Training Bus has already conducted training programs in Barangay Bagong SIlangan, one of the poorest communities in Quezon City, with a total of 124 graduates and another in Barangay Tumana in Marikina City with 141 graduates. The courses under the Park and Train program include Small Engine/Motorcycle Servicing, Electrical Installation and Maintenance (EIM), Computer Hardware Servicing, Haircutting, Massage Therapy and Community Disaster Management Program.? Tesda said that the park and train model is replicated in the various regions of the country. In Region 7 alone, there are eight mobile training buses and another three in Region 4A, specifically in Batangas. ]]>
