TESDA Provincial Training Center Cavite – Rosario, is one of the 125 training center of TESDA in providing world-class technical education and skills development in the country.
The establishment of the TESDA Provincial Training Center – Rosario located in the Cavite Economic Processing Zone (CEPZ) in Rosario, Cavite presently headed by Mr. Rizal S. Bautista, Training Center Administrator came from the idea of former District II Representative of Cavite, Congressman Renato P. Dragon due to the increasing demand of skilled workers and with fast growing numbers of industries in the province. It was his desire to alleviate poverty and improve the quality of living in
After the MOA, negotiation with CEPZ has been made together with the then Regional Director on NMYC IV, Dir. Agripina P. Zafra for the allotment of the lot inside the CEPZ where the training center will be constructed. A Deed of Unsufruct was signed between the Economic Processing Zone Authority (EPZA) represented by Mr. Tagumpay Jardiniano, the CEPZ Administrator and TESDA representative by Dir. Agripina P. Zafra for a portion of a lot measuring 1,000 square meters for a 25- year period.
The construction of the training center started in October, 1995 and was finished the following year. With its completion in 1996, the center was operated and managed by Rurban Progress Development Foundation (RPDF), an NGO chaired by Congressman Dragon. The RPDF operates the center and offered courses in Sewer Garments and Consumer Electronics Mechanic until 1997. Before the beginning of 1998, RPDF asked the assistance of TESDA (formerly NMYC) to offer courses in Electricity and Electronics while they operate the Sewer Garments course. This arrangement lasted until 1999. In 2000, RPDF turned over the management and the operation of the training center to TESDA due to lack of funding support. Since then, TESDA operate and manage the training center while RPDF assist in the recruitment and referral for employment of graduates and the operation of the Sewer Garments course. In 2001, the training center complied with the requirements of the Unified TVET Program Registration Accredidation (UTPRAS) of TESDA for its offered programs.
