DOLE’s PRC re-schedules licensure examinations for teachers, physicians, and sanitary engineers
Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday announced that the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), an attached agency of the DOLE, has rescheduled the Board Licensure Examinations for Professional Teachers (BLEPT), Physicians (BLEP), and Sanitary Engineers (BLESE) which were originally scheduled in July and August 2014.
Baldoz said PRC Chairman Teresita Manzala, in a report, informed her that the professional regulatory boards for teachers, medicine, and sanitary engineering recommended the rescheduling of the licensure examinations to give way to the centennial anniversary celebration of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) which coincides with the BLEPT on 27 July 2014.
“The PRC had issued Commission Resolution No.838, Series of 2014, which underlined the need to reschedule the licensure examinations that will be affected by the INC Centennial Celebration,” Baldoz said, adding that she had directed the PRC to disseminate the information on the new schedules as widely as possible to make applicants aware about them.
The new dates of exams and their corresponding deadlines for filing of application are as follows:
For Professional Teachers, the examinations will be 17 August 2014, with the deadline for the filing of application to take the examinations on 14 June 2014.
For Physicians, the examinations, which were originally scheduled on 16, 17, 23, 24 August, has been moved to 23, 24, 30, 31 August 2014, with the deadline to file the application on 1 August 2014.
For Sanitary Engineers, the examinations, which were originally scheduled on 12, 13, 14 August, has been re-scheduled for 26, 27, 28 August 2014, with the deadline on 6 August 2014.
