Tesda, Daikin to establish HVAC training center in Cebu

·2 min read

THE Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) and Daikin Philippines have agreed to establish a Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning (HVAC) center inside Tesda 7 compound in Cebu City.

Tesda Secretary Isidro Lapeña and Daikin Philippines president Takayoshi Miki made the announcement on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.

This development is set to benefit more Tesda scholars in the HVAC sector.

The HVAC training center in Cebu City is the second in the Philippines. The first one opened in December 2021 inside the Tesda Complex in Taguig City.

The HVAC Training Center in Cebu City is part of the memorandum of agreement between Tesda and Daikin Philippines which was signed last July 15, 2021.

Tesda 7, as part of the agreement, will give a facility in the Regional Training Center (RTC) – Cebu that Daikin will renovate into a state-of-the-art HVAC Training Center by devising and executing higher-level certification training programs to generate employees trained in air-conditioning installation and maintenance.

Lapeña, in his message, expressed hope that Tesda and Daikin will soon produce highly equipped Filipinos in the HVAC sector.

He also expressed his gratitude to Miki and Daikin Philippines training and product manager Justin Aaron Sy for the expansion of the Tesda-Daikin partnership to provide industry-driven training programs, particularly in the HVAC sector.

“This training center will surely provide a higher level and industry-driven HVAC training programs that will provide more opportunities for the Cebuanos and neighboring provinces in the HVAC sector with the passion to improve their services and promote employment opportunities in the HVAC sector,” the Tesda chief said.

The RTC-Cebu is expected to offer the Commercial Air-conditioning Installation and Servicing NC III starting in the fourth quarter of 2022. It is set to produce around 100 fully equipped technicians per year once it is operational. (with PR)
