For the 6th time, AGREA Farm School maintains 100% pass rate


  • 25 new Organic Agriculture Production NCII holders
  • AGREA Farm and Farm School gets DOT accreditation
  • Two Marinduque-based Organic Agriculture Production NCII assessors on the way
  • AGREA, TESDA offers organic farming training plus financial assistance

For the sixth time since the farm school opened in November 2017, 100% of students of the AGREA Farm School Wave 6 pass the Organic Agriculture Production NCII Assessment. 

All 25 examinees from the AGREA Farm School get passing competency remarks for Organic Agriculture Production National Certification (OAP NCII) last 10-12 September 2018. This qualifies all 25 of them as Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)-certified Organic Agriculture Farmers. 

All 25 of these achievers are qualified as competent Organic Agriculture Farmers, Organic Chicken Raisers, Organic Hogs Raisers, Organic Vegetables Farmers, Organic Concoctions and Extracts Producers, and Organic Fertilizer Producers. 

Mr. Keneth de Gracia, a TESDA-certified OAP NCII assessor and Farm Tourism Director of Costales Nature Farms, supervised the evaluation at the AGREA Farm School and Assessment Center in Barangay Cawit, Boac, Marinduque. 

In the previous five NCII assessments that happened this year, AGREA Farm School also recorded a perfect passing rate in the said national assessment. 

Like the farm school’s earlier batches of graduates, this new set of passers is composed of small-scale farmers, agriculturists by profession, Agriculture degree holders, technical vocational trainers, former Overseas Filipino Worker (OFWs), senior high school graduates, senior citizen, and community-based youths.

Multi-accredited farm and farm school
AGREA Farm School is the first TESDA-accredited farm school in Marinduque and is also certified by the Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Training Institute as an Organic Agriculture Learning Site.

The Department of Tourism (DOT) MIMAROPA also accredited AGREA Farm Estate as an agri-tourism farm site. Together with two other farms in Marinduque, these three farms are the first DOT-accredited farm tourism destinations in the whole MIMAROPA region.

Organic Agriculture Production NCII
AGREA’s Organic Agriculture Production (OAP NCII) course is supported by the TESDA Marinduque Provincial Office under the Training for Work Scholarship Program.

OAP NCII is a national level technical-vocational qualification that is consist of competencies that a person must achieve to produce organic farm products such as chicken and vegetables, including the production of organic supplements such as fertilizers, concoctions and extracts, as well as raising organic hogs.

Marinduque-based OAP NCII Assessors
Since November 2017 until this month, the AGREA Farm School was “importing” Organic Agriculture Production NCII assessors from other regional public offices and private agencies (Mindoro and Laguna).

But that will soon change as two Marinduque-based professionals are already in the working into becoming accredited OAP NCII assessors. Both Laurito Morales and Erdie Mistal are former AGREA Farm School alumni and are members of OAP NCII Wave 3.

“Our NCII assessments will now be more accessible for our graduates as we will have local-based Organic Agriculture Production assessors very soon,” said Rafael Seño, Director of the AGREA Farm School and Assessment Center.

Organic farming training plus financial assistance
Deserving scholarship applicants who are willing to take a full 28-day Organic Agriculture Production (OAP) NCII training at the AGREA Farm School are also entitled to financial assistance and book allowance.

The Private Education Student Financial Assistance (PESFA) program is one form of assistance to students in private education under Republic Act 8645, otherwise known as “Expanded Government Assistance to Students and Teachers in Private Education Act”. The TESDA PESFA training at the AGREA Farm School is for September to November 2018 scholarships placements

PESFA program aims to extend financial assistance to marginalized but deserving students in Technical-Vocational Education and Training (TVET) courses and to assist private institutions in their development efforts by assuring a steady supply of enrollees to their course offerings.

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
