Chairman Pilando underscores as he recognized the invaluable support and cooperation of PRC RO2 officers and employees in making the momentous occasion possible.
Further, Hon. Commissioner Erwin M.

This is consistent to our mandate and principle that our facilities and services must address the evolving needs of our professionals in all Regions”, said Comissioner Enad.
In collaboration with the DPWH – CTDEO and through the initiative of Congressman Lara, the amount of Ten Million (10M) was included in the National Expenditure Program (NEP) and GAA for FY 2022 covering the 1st Phase implementation of the said project.
The Testing Center will soon house the Computer-Based Licensure Examinations (CBLE) with 180 to 200 workstations for the examinees. The said project will be of great help to the PRC and the examinees as this will serve as venue for the conduct of various CBLEs in the Region which will provide easier access and convenience.
Unveiling of marker of the 2nd Floor of the Office Building was also witnessed by the PRC RO2 Officers and Employees in recognition of Chairman Pilando’s invaluable support on Regional Infrastructure Projects.
With this significant milestone in its history, PRC is hopeful that this building will bring convenience, accessibility, and quality public service.
