Thanks to modern technology, renewing your Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) license can now be done from the comfort of your own home.
Instead of making a personal visit and enduring long waiting lines at their offices, all you have to do these days is to utilize the internet and you’ll be able to process your documents in no time.
Here’s how you can renew your PRC license online:
1. First, visit the official PRC license renewal website at https://www.prc-online.com to access the Licensure Examination and Registration Information System (LERIS V2) and then register for an account there. When you do, make sure that you are using a working e-mail address so you can verify your account through the e-mail you will receive from email@example.com.
You can complete your registration by clicking the “Activate Account” button. After doing so, click the “Sign In” button and enter your username and password. Fill up all the required fields with the right details and be sure to hit the “save information” button only if you’re already done. Otherwise, you won’t be able to edit any of the information anymore.
2. Now click “Select Transaction” and the go to “Renewal.” Next, select your profession from the dropdown menu and enter your PRC license number.
At this point, you will have to choose a payment method and then choose your preferred date and time of pick up.
Your payment options include over the counter payment via bank deposit at BDO, Metrobank, BPI, Landbank, RCBC, Chinabank, Eastern Bank, Union Bank, Security Bank, PNB, DBP, and others.
You may also pay via online banking through BDO Internet Banking, BPI Express Online, Chinabank Online, Metrobank Direct, RCBC Access One, Union Bank EON / Internet Banking, and UCBP Connect.
