Alleged PRC Review Materials for Licensure Examinations
The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), the agency mandated to implement the regulatory laws and policies for the various regulated professions, is NOT involved in the production, sale, and distribution of review materials for the licensure examinations.
The public is thus advised that the PRC does not endorse or advertise review materials made available for the licensure examinations. It is also not connected or affiliated to sellers/ distributors of such review materials, particularly those that are situated close to the PRC office premises. Their proximity to the PRC premises does not guarantee the quality and credibility of the review materials being sold.
The PRC will continuously take measures to protect the public from false and misleading information, especially those concerning the licensure examinations.
