The DepEd Central Office announced through National Memo 172 the availability of the PRC's 7/24 online verification of eligibility of professional teachers at the latter's website - www.prc.gov.ph
Eligibility verification is thus made easy and fast, increasing reliability and integrity.
In the DepEd-ARMM, this online verification of eligible's name, license number and birth date has been instituted since the assumption to office of Atty Jamar Kulayan as Regional Secretary of DepEd-ARMM. According to Sec Kulayan, "this makes it easy for us to verify whether an applicant is eligible or not. Because of this mechanism we have put to rest allegation of fake eligibility."
The documents of applicants whose name, license number and birth date are not in the online registry are not processed. Regular teachers are advised to check their names in the online registry.
For those who claim that they are LET passers but their names are not in the online registry, are advised to contact the PRC:
Atty. Teresita R. Manzala, Chairperson, Board of Professional Teachers, P. Paredes St. corner Nicanor Reyes St., Sampaloc, Manila, at telephone numbers (02) 314-0026 and (020 735-4476.
Sec Kulayan reminds those with PRC transaction to be extra careful and vigilant with "fixers". These unscrupulous individuals claim to be able to shorten the process or with "inside contacts". There are already incidents of ARMM teachers who have been put in hot seat all the while thinking they are eligible; when they went to PRC to renew their license it was too late to realize they were duped by these fixers. There are also cases on appeal with CSC on fake eligibility.
