LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, Sept 1 (PIA) — The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC)-Baguio regional office conducted mobile outreach services dubbed “Araw ng Propesyonal” last August 29 at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center here.
Provincial Employment Services Office (PESO) Chief Alex Ferrer said the activity was undertaken in partnership with the provincial government to provide residents of Pangasinan with an easy and faster access to the services of the agency.
It minimized time, money spent, and effort of applicants since normally, those who wish to transact with PRC need go up to Baguio City where the PRC office is located, said Ferrer.
The services offered by PRC included initial registration of licensure examination passers; renewal of professional identification (ID)/license; release of professional ID card and board certificate (per prior request by the professional and subject to availability); issuance (upon request) of certification of good standing; and application for licensure examinations.
Potenciano Conte, instructor at Pangasinan State University-Lingayen Campus who availed of the services, said, “It is a nice move of PRC as it saves us from effort and expenses. That is really a public service, reaching out to busy clientele.”
PRC will hold the same activity on the following dates and venues: September 3 at the Urdaneta City Cultural and Sports Center in Urdaneta City; September 24 at the Arenas-Resuello Sports Complex in San Carlos City; October 12 at the Provincial Training and Development Center in Lingayen town; and November 26 at the Bayambang Covered Court in the town of Bayambang.
PRC advised professionals who wish to claim their professional ID card and board certificate on the above schedules to send them an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 0921-969-3919 at least three or four working days before the scheduled date with the following information: venue where to claim; complete name; profession; registration number; and date filed.
