If your National Certificate (NC) or Certificate of Competency (COC) is expiring, it's worth a visit to TESDA especially if you need such credentials in your current work or if you need it for whatever purpose. Before going to TESDA for renewal of your NC or COC, make sure that you have the requirements so you save time, energy and money. I got this list of requirements from TESDA Quezon City. Please note that I don't work for TESDA. My NC Certificate is about to expire that's why I inquired for this.
Take note of the following when applying for your NC or COC renewal:
1. Request Letter
It is a formal letter so care should be given when writing this one. It is a good idea to explain here the reason for your intent to renew your NC or COC.
2. Original NC/COC
Original, not a scanned copy or photocopy of your NC/COC. If you somehow lost the original copy of your NC/COC but you have the scanned copy or photocopy of it then you should bring this along with an Addidavit of Loss for the said documents.
3. Application Form
This form is given when you go to TESDA.
4. Two (2) pieces passport size picture (white background, with collar)
They will not process your application unless your picture meets the above requirements.
5. Certificate of Employment
This document will serve as an evidence that you are making use or have made use of your skills given the certification that you have.
6. Renewal Fee (PhP 100.00)
7. Visit TESDA
Make time to personally go to TESDA.
8. If you're outside of the country and you can't personally go to TESDA to renew your NC or COC, you need to provide a Special Power of Attorney from where you're at to your representative. I don't really know how this works but you can ask the Philippine Embassy or ask around how to do this in the country where you're at.
