Tesda Animation Courses

Fans of computer graphics or those planning to learn the skill can look forward to this new opportunity for training by the country’s prime agency for technical vocational education.

Partnering anew with the Animation Council of the Philippines Inc. (ACPI), the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) aims to train select scholars in Animation NC II, 2D Digital Animation NC III, and 3D Animation NC III under its Training for Work Scholarship Program (TWSP).

The animation industry is an exciting prospect to consider. It is lucrative, in-demand, and has unlimited potential for growth locally and internationally.

The training is for about 5 to 8 hours about 5 days a week and can last between 2.5 months to 3.5 months if they train 8 hours a day for 5 days a week for the Animation NCII and 2d Animation NCIII; for 3D Animation NCIII – this could take at least 6 months. The NC could reach to NC V, which is of higher competence and skill. The NC could be required by local and/or foreign employers as a basic requirement looking for qualified applicants, but they will still have their own tests for which the applicants need to pass. There is no need to be a college graduate to take the NC courses; a high school graduate who is at least 18 years old can take the Animation NC courses and if he passes, he can be employed already by companies willing to take him.
