Returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are urged to take any of the free online courses offered by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to learn new skills or enhance their knowledge to meet new job opportunities.

TESDA Deputy Director-General John Bertiz III said there are 68 different free online courses offered by the agency.

“While in quarantine, whether here or abroad, OFWs can take advantage of the free courses so they can improve on the jobs they currently do, get employed in a different field, or start their own business,” said Bertiz.

“Under the TESDA Online Program (TOP), courses include food and beverages processing, production of bread, cake and pastry, salads, sweets, and other food dishes. These products have been in demand in the past few months,” he said.

He said there are also courses designed to develop or improve skills on computer and electrical services, web development, computer programming, and mobile application development.”

The complete list of TOP courses are at the TESDA website (https://www.e-tesda.gov.ph/).
