Guides for Enrolling in TESDA Short Courses

Filipinos are known to be resourceful wherever they are. Most of the time they are the ones excelling in all means and matters in comparison to other employees from different countries. For example, a ruined or a poor functioning electric fan cannot be easily disposed by a Filipino because maybe it was given by a person he/she treasures the most. More so, memories lie in that ruined thing, they are meant to be sentimental.

Well, this is a common scenario for most Filipinos, instead of putting malfunctioning things in the garbage, they would definitely made and think of ways to make it more useful in the household. Well, come to think of it, they do not put things easily in trash because in one way or another, everything can be fixed but not all can do it with proper knowledge and expertise. Here’s another example, a household would enjoy watching their favorite teleserye with their families. But the bonding was suddenly cut because the television cannot produce any visuals aside from its audio.

Now here’s the catch, would they keep “watching” on a television that functions like a radio? Or better yet, learning “How to do it yourself” with the benefits of also providing other means of earning for a better living? Well, a lot would say, “Easier said than done” but most would rather utter, “Better give it a try”. The reality strikes when people in their neighbourhood had started building their new house from working abroad as a welder, technician and the like. Imagine the lost opportunity when you are scared to even try the goodness that life can offer for free. Got it right bud, for free! People love free things, who doesn’t?

If you are eager enough to learn and change your status, begin from knowing what you are capable of. Your malfunctioning appliances at home can be your silver lining and that can be a good starting point. If you are ready enough to ask these questions to yourself, then you need it more than anybody else will. Do you plan to study other courses that are not aligned with your graduate course? Or are you planning to learn new skills that you are interested in? Or a person suddenly had thought about the future and wants better changes in life?

You might have heard about TESDA courses a thousand times and might as well your parents kept on nagging you to enrol. If you are not a graduate of high school but still interested to enrol, you can be one by attending Alternative Learning System. Finish first ALS then apply to the nearest TESDA Center for a certification after the assessment.

think the salary thing made you more interested that will lead you to enrolling.
