As mandated by law, TESDA is the sole government entity that sets the appropriate skills standards and tests, coordinates and monitors manpower policies and programs, and provides policy directions and guidelines for resource allocation for the Technical Vocational Educational Technical institutions in both the private and public sectors. The assessment process seeks to determine whether the graduate or worker can perform to the standards expected in the workplace based on the defined competency standards. Certification is provided to those who meet the competency standards.
An assessment center is a venue accredited by TESDA to assess the skills of an applicant. An applicant must pass all competencies before issuance of the National Certificate. The national certificate NCII is very valuable for applicants for overseas jobs as this is oftentimes required by the companies there.
