Taguig City - Returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) can now register online through the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) mobile application to avail of the agency’s free skills training.
The online registration was first introduced during TESDA Secretary Isidro Lapeña's virtual consultation with the OFWs around the world a week ago.
Lapeña said that TESDA is intensifying its reintegration program for returning and former OFWs. This latest development, dubbed “TESDA Abot Lahat Ang OFWs,” will provide them with more accessibility to the services that the agency can provide.
"Through this online registration, we can determine the preferred skills training by our returning OFWs to match their employment or self-employment needs and we can also extend the services to them while we are facing this pandemic," the official said.
OFWs can register online through the TESDA App which can be downloaded on both Google Play Store and App Store for free.
They will be required to fill-up an online form with their personal and professional information, location on their return to the country, and the skills training they need.
Lapeña has also directed the agency’s regional directors to ensure that TESDA personnel are present and available in the TESDA Malasakit Helpdesks located at the airports to attend to arriving OFWs.
