In February 24, 2010, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) has adopted MC No. 3, s. 2010 (Revised Schedule of Skills Tests and Civil Service Eligibilities under the Skills Certificate Equivalency Program (SCEP)).
Under the new Resolution, the Data Encoder eligibility shall continue to be the appropriate eligibility for the following IT positions in government: Computer Operator, Computer Operator I to IV, Data Encoder, Data Encoder I to IV, Senior Data Encoder, Data Encoder - Controller, Senior Data Encoder - Controller, Supervising Data Encoder - Controller, Data Controller, Data Controller I to IV, Supervising Data Controller, Senior Computer Operator, Senior Computer Operator I to III, Data Entry Machine Operator I to IV, Accounting Machine Operator I to III and Auxiliary Machine Operator I to IV.
Those who passed the PC Operations NC II competency assessment of TESDA and whose National Certificates are still valid, may apply for the conversion of the said certificates to Data Encoder eligibility until December 2010. However, the TESDA would like to clarify that this provision is applicable ONLY to existing NC holders of PC Operations NC II whose validity has not yet expired.
The PC Operations NC II has been delisted from the roster of promulgated national qualifications, hence, TESDA no longer offer assessment and certification for such qualification.
