PRC’s Online Application System pilot-tested

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has pilot-tested its Online Application System (OAS) in two educational institutions pursuant to its thrust of streamlining its systems and procedures.

The OAS was pilot-tested at the University of Baguio and the University of Cordilleras on February 1 and 3, 2012, respectively, to examinees for the March 2012 Criminologists Licensure Examination.  Applicants at the said universities who participated in the pilot testing overwhelmingly favored the adoption of OAS, saying it is user-friendly, faster and more convenient.

An important component of its e-services program, the OAS seeks to make the application process for the licensure examination faster and easier as applicants can apply online anytime, anywhere at their convenience.   With the implementation of the OAS, applicants will just have to go on line and not in line.

Upon successful pilot-testing and subject to further refinements, the OAS will soon be adopted in all PRC offices to serve the growing number of PRC clients especially for the nursing, teachers and criminologists licensure examinations.#
