Step-by-Step Process for Renewal

Step 1: Visit the TESDA District or Provincial Issuing Office where you obtained your current certificate (NC/COC) and apply for renewal.

Note: In areas where new Training Regulations (TR) have been implemented, holders of NC/COC must undergo competency assessment based on the new TR upon expiration. If new TR is not available, holders of NC/COC can request renewal after verification in the RWAC.

Step 2: Submit the following required documents:

  • Complete the Application Form.
  • Provide the original NC/COC.
  • Include three (3) colored passport-sized photos with a white background.
  • Submit a Certificate of work and/or teaching experience for at least 12 months during the validity period of the NC/COC in the relevant qualification. The certificate should be duly signed by the employer and/or school administrator. For self-employed individuals, the certificate should be signed by an official from an appropriate government agency.

Step 3: Proceed to the Assessment Center Cashier to pay the Renewal Fee and obtain the Official Receipt.

Step 4: On the scheduled date given by the TESDA issuing office, collect your renewed NC/COC.

Please follow these steps carefully to ensure a smooth certificate renewal process.




  1. The NC/COC should be directly released to the applicant. However, if a representative is claiming it on their behalf, the applicant must submit a Special Power of Attorney (SPA).
  2. When claiming the NC/COCs, please present the Official Receipt and a valid Identification Card (ID).
  3. Please note that any falsification or fraudulent duplication of documents will result in disqualification or forfeiture of the right to participate in any assessment certification or similar program of TESDA.
