TESDA Training para sa OFW: Kailangan Ba Ito?

Plano mo bang mag apply sa dayuhang bansa bilang isang kasambahay? Kung ang iyong kasagutan ay OO, may isang training ng TESDA na kailangang attendan.

TESDA training? Base sa experience ko sa isang International Agency bilang Operations Manager, may mga ahensya sa ibang dayuhang bansa na nagre-recruit ng mga kasambahay dito sa atin na humihiling na dumaan muna sa isang training ng housekeeping ang aplikante bago sila makapaglingkod sa kanilang bansa. Ang mga bansa na humihiling ng housekeeping training ay katulad ng Taiwan at Malaysia.

Bakit nga ba kailangang magtraining pa sa TESDA ng housekeeping? Marahil ay sasabihin ninyo na marunong naman ako sa mga gawaing- bahay. Sa kabilang banda ay tama din naman na sanay ka na sa mga gawaing bahay. Pero sa TESDA ituturo ng mga trainers ang mga tamang paraan sa mga sumusunod na tamang gawaing-bahay:

Table setting – tamang paraan kung pano ayusin ang hapag-kainan, tamang kubyertos na gagamitin, ang tamang paraan ng paglalagay ng mga baso, at pinggan sa hapag-kainan. At tamang paraan ng pagseserve ng pagkain.

Pag-aayos ng beddings- dito tinuturo ang tamang pag-aayos ng bedsheets sa kama. Karamihan sa atin ay di marunong mag-ayos ng bedsheets, pero may iba’t-ibang klase ng bedsheets na ginagamit sa pag-aayos ng higaan.

Paglilinis ng bahay- marahil ay sasabihin ninyo na basic lang naman ito. Ang dahilan na kailangan nyo itong pag –aralan ay sa kadahilang may mga machines na ginagamit sa dayuhang bansa at dito sa training na ito matutunan ninyo ang tamang pag-ooperate ng mga kagamitan sa paglilinis katulad ng vacuum cleaner, vapor steam cleaner, at steam mop. • Paglalaba- dito ituturo sa inyo ang tamang paraan kung paano labhan ang iba’t-ibang uri ng tela at ang paggamit ng ibat’-t ibang washing machine at dryer.

Proper grooming- itinuturo din sa training kung pano maging maayos sa pangangatawan ang isang kasambahay, pagiging maayos sa damit at malinis sa katawan.

• Culture ng bansang inyong pupuntahan – ito ay isa sa mga importanteng parte ng training sapagkat kailangan ninyong mapag- aralan ang kultura ng inyong amo. Kasama na dito ang pagkain na inyong lulutuin, ugali nila, at ang kanilang community.

Lengguwahe – isa din ito sa pinaka-importanteng matutunan ninyo ang lengguwahe na kanilang ginagamit. Sa inyong trining ay ituturo sa inyo ang mga basic words na kailangan ninyong maintindihan na sasabihin ng inyong employer.

Ang mga nabanggit sa itaas ay ang ilan lamang sa inyong matutunan sa TESDA training. Aang training ay tumatagal ng hanggang isang linggo. May mga training centers na accredited ng TESDA ang iba sa mga ito ay in-house or sa training center kayo maninirahan ng isang linggo ang iba naman ay maaaring mag-uwian na lamang kung may matutuluyan naman na malapit sa training center.

Kapag natapos na ninyo ang housekeeping training kayo ay makakatanggap ng Certification ng Housekieeping at maaari na kayong mag-aaply sa ahensya na accredited ng POEA. Maaari ninyong icheck sa website na ito ang mga TESDA Accredited Centers:


Isang paalala muli na mag-iingat sa mga pekeng ahensya na nagsasabi na sila ay accredited training centers at POEA accredited. Sa kadahilanang may kaukulang bayad ang training sa TESDA.

News keeps us informed of what is taking place around us. It tells us of political events, extraordinary and the ordinary important events. Even the advertisements have their value. In the world today, reading the news is essential and necessary.

Reading the news give us deeper in sight into the event. With newspapers you can choose to spend a few minutes or a few hours reading repeatedly a piece of news, unlike television.

Reading motivates the drive to know what happens next, to want to turn the page, the need to keep going. So it forces us to learn new words, to think new thoughts. In addition, it also builds empathy.

Reading the news is like gaining insider access to current information about the world we live in today. It records events that happen. It is important and interesting to read about developments and progress that are being made from day to day in the affairs of your country or in the affairs to the world. Thus, reading a newspaper makes us fit to participate in our society. It also helps develop an educated mind, informed judgment, and critical understanding.

It has been said that to read is to fly and it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries. Reading is a particular exercise that not only gives an insight to the world around, but gives us an inner comfort. When we read a particular news, we start identifying ourselves with situations and those around us. By reading, we are actually viewing a reflection of our society. In the fast paced modern world of today, it has become very important to be updated. Newspaper is a great way of keeping ourselves updated. Newspapers remain the most invaluable source of news and information, despite the different forms of the electronic media.

Reading news also inadvertently improves one’s language skills. News items and articles are written to express and communicate, thus precision and meticulous use of words and expressions are used. As a result, a person will absorb these language and style details while going through news items and articles, as well as sharpen communication skills in reading and writing. Consequently, comprehension skills are enhanced. The more one reads, new words and expressions reveal their meaning to the reader’s mind. Unconsciously, our vocabulary is enhanced and the language ability improves, becoming more expressive and fluent.

Buhay OFW provides news and opinion articles as a service to our readers.  Often these articles come from sources outside of our organization.  Where possible, the author and the source are documented within each article.  Statements and opinions expressed in these articles are solely those of the author or authors and may or may not be shared by the staff and management of Buhay OFW.

If you do not agree and accept, without limitation or qualification, these Terms of Use please exit the site.


May we ask for a small favor?

Unlike others, we don't charge users fees for asking questions from our medical, legal and other experts. This is because we want to keep our services free and accessible to all, regardless of social or financial status.

But it's difficult and expensive work. While more underserved Filipinos are using BuhayOFW, none are paying for it. And advertising revenues are minimal. Nevertheless, we have costs like any other top site: servers, power, rent, programs, staff, medical/legal experts, etc. We take no government funds; we run on donations.

So if you value our work in helping less fortunate Filipino friends, then become a Supporter and help make our future more secure. Help us continue our work.
