Once you passed a licensure examination, you need to register with Philippine Regulatory Commission or PRC. The good thing is that new board passers can use PRC online registration. This means less hassle as they need not fall in long queues.
The old process of PRC initial registration the applicant is required to submit the duly accomplished oath form and wait for the verification of records. It’s really time consuming from submitting the requirements and falling in long lines at the cashier.
To provide ease and convenience to new board passers who will initially register, the PRC has introduced the LERIS V2 or the Licensure Examination and Registration Information System. The applicant can do the registration online and more applicants are accommodated, thus the hassles were eliminated. But, not all applicants are aware about the online registration process.
To help those first timers to do the PRC online registration, here’s how to do it:
Before opening the PRC LERIS V2 portal, the applicant must have the following:
- Accessible and active email address
- Mobile phone number
- ID photo (in .jpg format)
- Community Tax certificate
Step 1. Using a mobile device or a computer, visit the registration portal at https://www.prc-online.com or the official website of PRC at www.prc.gov.ph . Look for the Initial Registration link and the Central Offices link.
