Setting-up a Regional Training Center for each region in the country is one of the directives of Sec. Lapeña, and during his message at the event, the Secretary expresses how happy he is that it was made possible by the TESDA-NCR team.

Lapeña said that the reason why he wanted to establish Regional Training and Assessment Centers in the country is because of the TESDA’s Slogan – TESDA Abot Lahat. He emphasized his goal to give each Filipino the opportunity to be trained and be assessed in their respective regions, without giving them the trouble of going to other regions to avail these services.

The TESDA chief also shared his appreciation to TESDA NCR’s team for being prompt and for competently responding to his directives, supporting his goals to help every Filipino acquire skills, and secure a job after.
