THE TECHNICAL Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) on Tuesday said face-to-face training and assessment in Metro Manila have restarted after the change in the lockdown level. 

Face-to-face training and assessment will be allowed up to 50% capacity for Alert Levels 2 to 4, while full capacity will be allowed for areas under Alert Level 1, TESDA said. 

Areas under Alert Level 5 or a granular lockdown should suspend face-to-face training and assessment until the status is eased, it added. 

It also said training involving human contact such as massage therapy and other beauty care-related skills was not allowed regardless of the alert level. 

Face-to-face training in areas under an enhanced community quarantine and modified enhanced community quarantine were still suspended. — Revin Mikhael D. Ochave
