The awarding of certificate of commitment was held during the recently held 1st Provincial Livelihood and Economic Summit in Surigao City.

TESDA’s PESFA is directed to area-based critical skills that respond to emerging and highly in–demand job requirements in the local and overseas labor market which is purposely driven in accordance with the Seek–Find–Train–Certify-Employ policy of the agency.
The TESDA has come up with its qualification map or the list of courses based on the Key Employment Generators (KEGs) of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) which in turn serves as basis for the scholarship vouchers. (TESDA/FEA/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
