Dignifying the construction profession
SKILLS ensures that construction professionals have sustainable employment, better compensation, and career growth. To achieve this, SKILLS offers bundled training composed of skills and competencies in carpentry, masonry, tile-setting, and plumbing. The graduates earn the corresponding TESDA NC II certifications. They qualify for the Assessment, Certification, and Accreditation System (ACAS) which earns them the title Builder Assistant. Builder Assistants have a higher salary and continuing employment during the duration of building construction
Having Builder Assistants are beneficial to companies. Builder Assistants are highly engaged, competent, committed, and open to learning and development. Multi-skilling also reduces the costs incurred from constant hiring, attraction, and on-boarding. Companies also save on fringe benefits from having a smaller number but better-skilled workers.
