Hi everything! 😆 Earlier today, I finished my third online course. It feels so good to do something productive while on quarantine. Last April 13, I enrolled myself in the TESDA Online Program (TOP). TOP offers 68 online courses for free and they are all self-paced. I took courses under Agriculture, Entrepreneurship and 21st Century Skills. The topics in these courses are so useful and timely. Since I love gardening, it broadened my knowledge about growing plants and the importance of having a sustainable garden or “survival garden” in our backyards. Im also sharing some notes under Managing Your Personal Finances. Since the ECQ has been extended until May 15, I thought of sharing this with you. Enrollment is quick and easy. Just go to e-tesda.gov.ph. May certificate din after! 🥰
