What is the National Service Training Program (NSTP)?
The National Service Training Program (NSTP) is a training program for students enrolled in tertiary as well vocational/ technical educational institutions; mandated by the state through R. A. 9163 or the “National Service Training Program Act of 2001”. The program aims to enhance civic consciousness and defense preparedness in the youth by developing the ethic of service and patriotism while undergoing training in any of its three (3) program components.
The three components of NSTP are
Reserve Officers Training Course (ROTC),
Literacy Training Service (LTS)
and Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS).
A student shall take up only program of instruction as requisite for graduation
ROTC is a program designed to provide military training among students in order to motivate, train, organize, and mobilize them for defense preparedness.
LTS is a program designed to train students to become teachers of literacy and numeracy skills to school children, out-of- school youth and other segments of society in need of their services.
CWS refers to programs or activities contributory to the general welfare and the betterment of life for the members of the community or the enhancement of its facilities, especially those devoted to improving health, education, environment, entrepreneurship, safety, recreation and morals of the society.

A student shall be undergoing the program for two semesters, normally during the freshman year, by enrolling in NSTP 1 during the 1 st semester and NSTP2 during the 2 nd semester. The said programs of instruction shall carry a non-academic credit of 3 units per semester.
