Enroll in Registered Training Programs – Manila Bulletin

TESDA to trainees: register for accredited training programs

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) has urged the public to enroll in Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programs duly registered with the agency.


In a statement, TESDA Director General Danilo P. Cruz said that all TVET programs open to the public must first be registered with the agency to ensure that such programs strictly adhere to their regulations and existing training regulations.

Under TESDA’s Unified TVET Program Registration and Accreditation System (UTPRAS), a Certificate of TVET Program Registration (CTPR) is issued to institutions that successfully comply with the requirements of program recording.

Officially registered TVET programs are listed in the TESDA Compendium of Registered Programs and are subject to compliance audits. In the event of a complaint, surveillance audits can also be carried out. Corresponding sanctions and penalties will be imposed on institutions that operate without accreditation “Our website has a searchable database of all duly registered programs operating at tech-voc institutions nationwide. We urge the public to confirm this list first before signing up to avoid any inconvenience,” Cruz said.

The database is accessible via this link: https://www.tesda.gov.ph/tvi.

TESDA said graduates of unregistered training programs cannot receive corresponding special orders because their credentials cannot be certified, authenticated or verified by TESDA.

Additionally, a graduate of an unregistered program cannot request an apostille of their training records or credentials from the Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), which will be required if the graduate is applying for a job at the stranger.

TESDA said about 17,557 training programs have been duly registered with them and are implemented by 4,600 public and private schools and training centers across the country.
