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: https://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/

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.

The Professional Regulation Commission discloses the need to have more optometrists, nutritionist-dietitians, guidance counselors, mining engineers, geologists, social workers, medical technologists, pharmacists, metallurgical engineers, librarians, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and psychologists.

PRC Chairperson Teresita R. Manzala and Commissioner Jennifer Jardin Manalili revealed that while some professions are now suffering from an oversupply of licensed professionals, such as teachers, nurses and criminologists, many other courses have been undersubscribed in the past years. Hence, the need to inform the public of what courses and professions may be considered by graduating students and their parents for the incoming year and the years after.

During the PRC’s first Talakayan with the media which coincided with the launching of the radio show, “The PRC Professional Hour”, at DZRJ 810AM, the PRC and the 46 Professional Regulatory Boards under PRC’s supervision discussed the myriad issues about their respective boards. The media launch featured the signing of a collaborative agreement between the PRC and DZRJ Chairman, Ramon RJ Jacinto.

The PRC Professional Hour airs every Tuesday at 10AM to 12NN on DZRJ 810AM.
