Meanwhile, the Tesda has released the Implementing Guidelines on the Deployment of Training Regulations, Competency Assessment Tools, and Assessment Fees for Lifeguard Services NC II, and Lifeguard Services NC III, a press release on its website said.
Recently, the Tesda Board approved the TRs for lifeguards in swimming areas nationwide. The TRs are formed with the assistance of the Philippine Life Saving Society.
The TRs for the Lifeguard Services NC II and NC III are now included among the courses being offered under the technical vocational institutions accredited by Tesda.
“It’s time that we put in place a lifeguard training course, knowing how beaches and pools are very popular in the country,” Tesda director general Guiling Mamondiong said. “With a certified lifeguard around, swimmers are not at risk."
He added that new and existing training programs registered under the No Training Regulations, or LGU/industry/other government programs relating or leading to Lifeguard Services NC II and Lifeguard Services NC III shall be covered by the circular.
To ensure that the TRs are implemented, Mamondiong directed all regional/provincial directors to conduct registration and re-registration for the program.
The assessment fee for the Lifeguard Services NC II is P660 per candidate, and P670 for Lifeguard Services NC III, the press release added.*
