TESDA encourages people to sign up for a course on Covid-19 prevention.
On Tuesday, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) urged the general public to sign up for its free online coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) prevention course.
The “Practicing Covid-19 Preventive Measures in the Workplace” course has been accessible from March 2020, according to TESDA Deputy Director General Aniceto Bertiz III.
According to him, the program was initially created to assist returning TESDA employees and TVET (technical vocational education and training) students in preparing for and protecting themselves from Covid-19 in the workplace.
This course lasts for around 2.5 hours.
According to Bertiz, students will understand the fundamentals of Covid-19 infection, including the causal agent, mechanisms of transmission, methods of diagnosis and testing, and indications and symptoms.
The lesson also covers preventive measures including keeping a physical distance, cleaning your hands properly, wearing a face mask, and managing infectious waste properly.
According to Bertiz, they could also develop coping mechanisms for the psychological strain that the Covid-19 pandemic has caused.
In order to stop the virus from spreading, TESDA Director General Danilo Cruz urged students and schools in both the public and private sectors to sign up for this course.
Cruz added, “We are asking everyone to enroll in our free online courses linked to Covid-19 management as we get ready to open our schools for full face-to-face lessons to help prevent the spread of the virus and adapt to the changes brought on by it.
The course is accessible via the TESDA Online Program mobile app, which may be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store, as well as the website e-tesda.gov.ph
