Uy libre! Navotas offers free tech-voc courses for high school graduates


Navotas residents who don’t have college degrees will have a chance to study and earn technical-vocational skills for free.

Mayor John Rey Tiangco is offering free scholarships through Technical Education and Skills Development Authority to Navoteños ages 18 to 55 who have finished high school.

Courses offered include Shielded Metal Arc Welding National Certificate II, Automotive Servicing NC I and Automotive Servicing NC II, Electronic Products Assembly and Servicing NC II, Bread & Pastry Production NC II, Dressmaking NC II, and Pastry Making NC II.

“Tech-voc skills remain in high demand and we are grateful to Tesda for providing Navoteños an opportunity to develop and master these skills so they could gain employment later on,” the politiko said.

Enrollment is ongoing and will run until March 29. Only 25 students will be accommodated for each course.

Interested applicants may submit needed documents at the Navotas Manpower Training Center.

The requirements include a voter’s certification from the Navotas Management Information Systems Office, 1.5 x 1.5 ID photo, and fully accomplished application form.
