The TESDA Online Program (TOP) is an open educational resource that aims to make technical education more accessible to Filipino citizens through the use of information and communication technologies. TOP provides an effective and efficient way to deliver technical education and skills development services to a broader audience or wide range of users and all learners at a lesser cost.
The program was created and designed for students, out-of-school youths, unemployed adults, local and overseas workers, and professionals who would like to take TESDA courses at their own pace, in their own time, and at the comfort of their desktops or laptop computers.
Because of the irregularities that happened in 2015 involving ghost scholars in training centers nationwide, a Technical Audit Team was established to visit and check 4,283 schools across the nation with registered programs under TESDA.
TESDA also created the National Inspectorate for Scholarship Program (NISP) to conduct inspection and spot checks in all technical vocational institutions in the country that are partners in implementing the scholarship programs.
Secretary Joel Villanueva launched the TESDA Online Program to bring TESDA closer to the people. The motto is, “If you can’t go to TESDA, then TESDA will go to you.” The program envisions to provide training opportunities to all the Filipinos, at their own pace, at their own time, through the online courses that would be made available through the TESDA online facility to make technical education and skills development more accessible to the citizens through the use of internet.

The TOP was designed to make technical vocational education and training (TVET) more accessible to potential trainees through the use of internet technology.
TOP shattered the boundaries that hindered access to TVET because there is now the internet. Even the overseas Filipino workers, who want to specialize in a course can take the training and have a National Certificate after passing the assessment.
