Caregivers Training and Certification in the Philippines

by publisher on September 17, 2009

TESDA Training

The sudden increase in the popularity of Caregiver jobs abroad has prompted the Philippine Government to regulate the Caregiver program so that each Caregiver that will be going abroad will be armed with all the skills he or she needs to perform the job properly.

With this aim in mind, all Caregiver Schools in the country were required to register their Caregiver Program to the Philippine Government Agency tasks to regulate Technical Skills – The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority or TESDA.

Each applying school must comply with the standards set by TESDA.  These standards must apply in their curriculum, number of training hours hours and trainers.  They must also comply with the set measurements of classrooms and training rooms plus the applying training institutions must also possess the required equipment and tools.  Here are the competencies caregiver students are expected to acquire at the end of the program:

BASIC COMPETENCIES: Participate in workplace communication,  Work in a team environment,  Practice career professionalism,  Practice occupational safety and procedures

COMMON COMPETENCIES: Implement and monitor infection control policies and procedures,   Respond effectively to difficult/challenging behavior,  Apply basic first aid, Maintain high standard of patient services

CORE COMPETENCIES: Provide care and support to infants/toddlers,  Provide care and support to children,  Foster social, intellectual, creative and emotional development of children,  Foster the physical development of children,  Provide care and support to elderly, Provide care and support to people with special needs,  Maintain healthy and safe environment,  Respond to emergency,  Clean living room, dining room, bedrooms, toilet and bathroom,  Wash and iron clothes, linen and fabric,  Prepare hot and cold meals

*source: TESDA website

After six months of rigorous training, the Caregiver trainees are required to take the National Competency Exam, also being given by TESDA, to be certified Caregivers.  This National Certificate is proof that the candidate has learned all the competencies set by the government.  This is also one of the papers being asked by the agencies, as well as the Canadian Embassy, when people are applying for a Caregiver post in Canada.  This and also the certification from TESDA that the Caregiver school they’ve attended is registered in TESDA’s system.  So before applying yourself to any Caregiver school, check first with the nearest TESDA if the school is registered or not so as to avoid inconveniece.
