Accountancy Faculty Members Passed NTTC Examination
Six faculty members from the Department of Accountancy
successfully passed the TESDA Assessment for Bookkeeping NC III, which
qualified them to be included in the Registry of Certified NTTC Trainers. A national competency assessment and
certification examination was administered by the Technical Education and Skills
Development Authority Region VII last February 28, 2012. To assess the skills level of the National
Certification candidates, six faculty members had to undergo a panel interview
conducted by three technical experts as panelists after which a written examination
They passed all required competencies, namely: (1) Plan
Training Session, (2) Supervised Work-based Training, (3) Facilitate Learning
Session, (4) Utilize Electronic Media, (5) Maintain Training Facilities, and
(6) Facilitate Competency Assessment.
The National TVET Trainers Certificate (NTTC) was finally awarded to
them by TESDA after they obtained the Trainers Methodology 1 (TM 1) certificate
for achieving the six Certificate of Competencies (COCs).

Christopher Malaya, required full time faculty members to comply with the

the delivery of education, only the most qualified faculty members are hired to
teach in their subjects of specialization.
The successful faculty members are Mr. Marciano Avenido, Ms.
Marichu Fornolles, Mrs. Sophia Godin,
Atty. Christopher Malaya, Dr. Challoner Matero and Mrs. Eleanor Paclijan, who participated
in the four months of tedious preparation for earning the Training Methodology
1 (TM 1) Certificate after passing the National Competency (NC) III Bookkeeping
Examination last September 24, 2011.
On February 24, 2012 a second batch of ten Accountancy faculty
members also passed the NC III Bookkeeping
Examination. Aside from their professional
license as CPAs, they have proven themselves to be considered as competent
bookkeepers and trainors. These faculty
members realized the importance of TESDA Certification as a “stamp of
competence”. Nowadays we have to face
the reality that future employers prefer to hire people equipped with the
necessary skills and competencies rather than hire a fresh college graduate who
still needs to be retrained. As pointed
out by TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva, “Finishing a course is not
enough. Undergoing the competency
assessment and getting the certification is moving a step up in the ladder of
