The training is aimed to expose and engage them to modern technology and industry practices. Purposely, this should fill-in the deficiency of their training and preparations extended by their respective training centers and institutions.

By the end of July, the NOC will organize and conduct a mock competition to gauge the improvement and readiness of the candidates for the international competition. The result of the mock exercise shall serve as the basis of the TESDA NOC in deciding who among the candidates will proceed to the next stage of the NTP and be finally considered to be part of the Philippine Team as Competitor to the 10th ASEAN Skills Competition. An independent panel composed of industry experts will be invited to assist the NOC to decide on this matter.
