If you're on the last stretch of reviewing for a licensure examination, take note: The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) has approved the request of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to conduct board exams in May and June 2021.

"Inaprubahan po ng IATF ang request ng Professional Regulation Commission na magsagawa ng licensure examinations for professionals sa Mayo at Hunyo," Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said during  the “Laging Handa” program aired over PTV-4. He also shared that the licensure exams slated for May and June will follow the strict health protocols of the Department of Health (DOH).

Additionally, Roque advises exam takers from communities under general community quarantine (GCQ) to refrain from traveling to areas under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) in order to avoid the spread of COVID-19 in low-risk areas.

In 2020, the licensure examinations originally scheduled from October until December were postponed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In January to March of 2021, however, the PRC was able to conduct licensure exams for medical technologists, sanitary engineers, architects, veterinarians, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, among others, with IATF's go signal.
