Western Visayas College of Science and Technology – Department of Industrial Technology, reopens the Evening Vocational Course (EVC) with improved skills training or what is called Version 2013 which started in June of this year.
The Evening Course has been offered long before but because the College wanted to address the volume of students that come they created this competency based courses that should be completed within 240 hours in one semester. In addition, a short term course on entrepreneurial skills or what is known as ETC is also offered which only runs for 80 hours and the schedule of classes can be arranged with their instructors. This program usually caters professionals, working students and the under privileged who cannot take a four year HRT Course. Moreover, at the end of the course, the student can also take the TESDA Assessment Examination Test if he desires.
The courses offered in the EVC in the first semester has a follow up course in the second semester. If a student completes the one year course, automatically he becomes a candidate for graduation. On the other hand, if a student doesn’t want to continue or didn’t finish the one year course, he is still entitled to get a certificate but won’t be allowed to graduate. Students accepted in the Evening Vocational Course should be at least high school graduates. A police clearance must also be secured.
The following are the courses offered in the Evening Vocational Course.
