The iGovPhil Project officially adopts the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) as the accessibility standard for all its related web development and services. WCAG 2.0 is also an international standard, ISO 40500. This certifies it as a stable and referenceable technical standard.

WCAG 2.0 contains 12 guidelines organized under 4 principles: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (POUR for short). There are testable success criteria for each guideline. Compliance to these criteria is measured in three levels: A, AA, or AAA. A guide to understanding and implementing Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 is available at:

All iGovPhil Project services and content are currently moving towards WCAG Level A compliance. Work is being done to make the system fully compliant with this level.

Nursing Graduates Test Online Application System in Zamboanga

Some 62 nursing graduates in Zamboanga yesterday submitted their applications for the June 30-July 1, 2012 nurse licensure examination (NLE) through the online application system (OAS). On the first day the system was launched at PRC Zamboanga, Ms. Mia Christine I. Fernando of the Ateneo de Zamboanga became the first applicant ever to use the OAS. Gladly receiving her notice of admission shortly after submitting her application at the PRC-Zamboanga application kiosk, Ms. Fernando said she found the system to be user friendly. Ms. Fernando is shown here holding her Notice of Admission with Director Senando Esteban of PRC-Zamboanga.

At the Western Mindanao State University, about 100 nursing graduates attended the orientation on the OAS. The graduates with complete requirements thereafter processed their applications through the PRC’s Zamboanga mobile services at the campus.

The OAS launching at PRC Zamboanga is the 8th in a series of testing and deployment in the regional offices of PRC, which aim to facilitate the submission and processing of applications for the various board examinations through the use of information technology. The system allows applicants to submit applications online in accordance with the PRC’s vision for PRC clients to “go online, not in line.” The OAS was previously tested and deployed successfully in Baguio, Davao, Cebu, Manila, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro and Legazpi.
