PRC Initial Registration: How to Claim PRC License?

Before everything else, we would like first to congratulate you for passing the Licensure Examination for Teachers (Board Exam). You made it! And because of that, you deserve to have a PRC License. That license that you earned from your endeavors will become one of your most significant achievement in life. Your PRC License/PRC ID will be on your hand anytime soon as long as you completed the next process, which is the PRC Initial Registration.


Requirements for New Board Exam Passers

The requirements for the issuance of Certificate of Registration and Professional Identification Card (ID) are the following: 

  1. Notice of Admission (for identification only)

Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has implemented the use of LERIS or the Licensure Examination and Registration Information System. It is a Registration System in the form of a website for the basic professional services like Exam Application, Initial Registration, and PRC License Renewal.

  • Hello! I have question about the issuance of Certificate of Registration and Professional Identification Card (ID) .

    I have tried to ‘initially’ registered a little while ago and it says record mismatched?! Is there a designated time for us to register online?

    I have read in PRC’s official FB page that registration for the issuance of Professional Identification Card (ID) and Certificate of Registration will be from December 16 to 20, 2019 and January 6 to 22, 2020.

    Is this the reason why I can’t register earlier? Do I have to register on the specified date? Please enlighten me . <3

    Also, where and when can we get the LET ID and oath taking ticket?

    Thank you and more power. Anticipating for your kind response!
