Board exams slated in January to March gets IATF’s go signal



The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) will hold licensure examinations for professionals scheduled for January to March, Malacañang announced Friday.

The Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, during its 95 meeting on Thursday night, approved the PRC’s request to administer the upcoming exams as several licensure tests were postponed last year, said presidential spokesperson Harry Roque.

Among the exams that will be held this month include those for aspiring medical technologists, sanitary engineers, and architects, according to the PRC’s website.

The licensure examination for medical technologists is scheduled for January 21 to 22, while the PRC examination for sanitary engineers is set from January 25 to 27.

Aspiring architects are scheduled to take the licensure examination on January 29 and 31.

Meanwhile, tests for graduates of veterinary medicine, physical and occupational therapy, social work, psychology, geology, and mechanical engineering are set in February.

On the other hand, the Physician Licensure Examination and the Licensure Examination for Teachers, along with five other qualifying tests, are scheduled in March.

The PRC deferred the conduct of some licensure exams last year amid the government-imposed restrictions to prevent Covid-19 transmission.
