The Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Quezon City government shall co-manage the operations of the IT Center through a governing board to be composed of the director general of TESDA as the chairperson and Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr. and a representative of the IT sector as co-chairpersons.

The governing board has agreed on the following IT course offerings for the center: animation, graphic design, system analysis and design, network management, web development and manpower and computer hardware maintenance.

Belmonte will deliver the welcome remarks while TESDA director general Augusto Syjuco will deliver the KPITC milestones. Perseus Echeminada
