NEGROS ORIENTAL, August 4 (PIA) -- The Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) here has announced that the trainers of the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) can now avail of credit equivalency system or Certificate of Compliance to Industry Experience (CoCIE) to become certified National TVET Trainers.


TESDA Information Officer Georgette Malagar said that most of the technical-vocational trainers are affected due to the lack of years of industry work experience which becomes a problem in applying and renewing for a national TVET trainers certification (NTTC).


Currently, about 10,840 certified TVET trainers (TM Level 1 Holders) whose NTTC are due for renewal  are affected due to insufficient number of years of industry work experience. 


Based on this premise, Malagar said there is a need to develop an acceptable program to supplement the required number of years of industry work experience of in-service trainers to anticipate the effect of a shortage of trainers.


With this alarming TVET concern, Malagar explained that TESDA issued Circular 33 series of 2017, otherwise known as “Institutionalizing a Credit Equivalency System for Industry Work Experience Required (IWER) of TVET Trainers” on July 6 this year.


The move is aimed to credit equivalency system for industry work experience requirement for TVET trainers and recognize different modalities of industry work experience; provide a credit equivalency for each modality; prescribe acceptable evidence supportive of each modality; and establish procedure of issuance of certificate of compliance to industry work experience requirement.


The Circular also institutionalized a credit equivalency system for industry work experience required per TR Section 3 of TVET trainers. This applies to TVET trainers currently employed both in private and public Technical Vocational Institutions (TVIs).  Pre- service industry work experience and in-service experience will also be recognized.


Under the rule, the information officer said the grace period for an in-service trainer to comply with the required industry work experience shall be equivalent to the duration of the industry experience required in the specific Training Regulation (TR). (fcr/jct/PIA7-Negros Oriental)
