TESDA Gets ISO Compliance

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) has announced that it passed the first year of surveillance audit as part of compliance to its ISO 9001:2008.

ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized quality management standard which specifies Quality Management System (QMS) requirements focused on an organization's ability to meet and improve upon customer satisfaction and quality requirements.

The audit confirms that the agency is adhering to the highest standard of requirements for a quality management bestowed upon TESDA in early 2012.

"Successfully completing this thorough audit shows that our processes and systems are of the highest order," Secretary Joel Villanueva, TESDA Director General, said.

"We are pleased with the results of the audit, and proud of the work of TESDA employees and partners, who maintain our quality system," Villanueva added.

In January 2011, TESDA received the ISO certification for its two major pillar programs, namely: Program Registration and Competency Assessment and Certification.

The ISO certification puts in place a system that ensures integrity and quality of training delivery and training outputs involving all of TESDA's technical vocational courses.

The audit covered the program registration and assessment and certification implemented by TESDA in different sites from March to October 2012.

The TUV SUD PSB Philippines Inc. ,a member of the TUV Asia Pacific Ltd. is accredited by the JAS-ANZ, a joint accreditation system of Australia and New Zealand and by the Philippine Accreditation Body of the Department of Trade and Industry as provider of audit and certification of management systems, conducted the audit.
