A total of 138 PESO managers and personnel received certification in Public Employment Service (PES) National Certificate IV (NC IV). The certification is part of the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) efforts in professionalizing the
Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Managers nationwide and in aligning with the institutionalization of PESOs as a criterion to comply under the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Memorandum Circular No. 086-2023, also known as the 2023 Seal of Good Local Governance: Pagkilala sa Katapatan at Kahusayan ng Pamahalaang Lokal.
The significant milestone underscores the Department’s relentless commitment to workforce development and skills enhancement to ensure consistent practices in PES services across all PESOs nationwide. This achievement serves as a testament to their dedication and exemplary competence within their respective roles.
Since the promulgation of the PES NC IV certification in 2019 by the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA), five (5) of DOLE’s Regional Offices have established an accredited TESDA assessment center within its area. These are located at the DOLE 4A Regional Training Center-CALABARZON, University of San Jose-Recoletos, Inc. (Basak Campus) in Region 7, DOLE Regional Office 8, Cagayan de Oro Bugo School of Arts & Trade in Region 10, and the Korea Philippines Vocational Training Center Davao in Region 11.
