THE TECHNICAL Education and Skills Development Authority in the National Capital Region opened its first assessment center for Domestic Work NC II at the TESDA-Navotas Training Institute.

TESDA Director General Isidro Lapeña directed the regions with high assessment demands for Domestic Work NC II to establish assessment centers because of the great need for domestic workers abroad.

The NCR has a large number of manpower agencies providing paramount assessment demands since NC II for Domestic Work is one of the requirements overseas.

The establishment of additional assessment centers under the supervision of the regional offices will  speed up the Assessment and Certification process and facilitate compliance of outbound overseas Filipino workers to the requirements.

OFWs have been TESDA’s priority clients for years. The agency continues to improve its services and programs to maintain a high rate of employment overseas.

The assessment center in Navotas was the first to be launched under TESDA Technology Institution, TNTI.

To support the provision of quality technical vocational training in the area, Mayor Toby Tiangco, together with Navotas City lone District Representative John Rey Tiangco turned over a building to TESDA for the CaMaNaVa District Office and TNTI to occupy for five years.

Five more assessment centers will be opened in the NCR.
