Tomorrow, I will take one of the qualification required by the institution where I am currently working as a full time Computer instructor. The qualification is required by TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) to schools that offers technical courses such as the ladderized Computer Science course. Next year, teachers in TESDA schools will not be allowed to teach computer subjects if they will not pass any of the certification required by TESDA. That’s why I need to take the qualification exam for me to still teach the programming subjects. This qualification is called Programming NC IV (National Certification Level 4). Actually, I already passed the PCO NCII qualification and the Assessors course last year and I hope this level 4 qualification will add up to my list of credentials.

The said examination is composed of two types of exams. One is the 3 hours written exam and 6 hours hands-on programming examination. According to TESDA, NCC (National Computer Center of the Philippines) will be the one who will conduct the said exam. These event is the reason why I will be out for a couple of days. Actually the said Programming NCIV competency exam is only one day but I need to be on the testing center 30 minutes before the exam and since its in Iloilo, I need to stay there a day before the test. So, this afternoon I will be riding and will travel the long road to Iloilo and will look for a place to stay there for two nights and prepare myself for the exam.

I wasn’t able to review topics that might be on the written exam and been idle with my programming skills lately because of SEO coming to picture in my life. When I was younger, even I don’t have any programming projects, I still create programs using C Language and Visual Basic just for fun. I don’t know if I could still recall those days when I am building a chess program. I hope so and I hope that I am equipped enough to pass the said test of programming skills and knowledge. Ready or not, TESDA’s Programming NCIV examination here I go! 🙂

Update: Someone told me, “You passed! and I rank #1 in Western Visayas NCC exam!” but the exam that I am talking on this post is not actually the Programming NCIV Qualification exam that is required by TESDA but the ICT exam of the NCC. If you are looking for THE P 4 exam, you can read my other post HERE. BTW, Idid passed the TESDA exam and currently I am an assessor in our place. 🙂
