BONTOC, Mountain Province – One hundred thirty four professionals in this province were served during the mobile outreach services of the Professional Regulation Commission on March 18.
Among the services availed of by the clients during the activity are: renewal of professional identification cards and licenses that had expired and that will expire on or before March 18, 2018; release of available professional ID cards and board certificates; initial registration of new board passers; and application for licensure examinations for civil engineers, certified public accountants, nurses and criminologist.
The activity is part of the 50th founding anniversary of the province and 13th Lang-ay festival.
Acting Gov. Bonifacio Lacwasan said that for the comfort and convenience of professionals in the province, the bridging activity will save the latter from cost of travel and other related expenses in going to PRC-Baguio.
The activity was scheduled on a Saturday so government employees especially those coming from other municipalities will be able to avail of the services and need not file their application for leave from work.
A nurse at the Bontoc General Hospital who applied for the renewal of her license said she is very thankful that the PRC brought its services in the province.
Dubbed as “Agew di maki laglagbo,” the activity was spearheaded and funded by the provincial government through its Public Employment Services Office with assistance from the Provincial Legal Office.
