Tesda and Daikin will create an HVAC training center in Cebu

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) and Daikin Philippines have agreed to establish a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) center within the compound of Tesda 7 in Cebu City.

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

This development should benefit more Tesda academics in the HVAC industry.

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

The Cebu City HVAC Training Center is part of the MoU between Tesda and Daikin Philippines which was signed on July 15, 2021.

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

Lapeña, in his message, expressed the 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 expanding the Tesda-Daikin partnership to provide industry-focused training programs, especially in the HVAC sector.

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

RTC-Cebu is expected to offer NC III commercial air conditioning installation and service from the fourth quarter of 2022. It is expected to produce around 100 fully equipped technicians per year once it is operational. (with PR)
