Renewing I.D. for PRC-Licensed Professionals have always been considered a chore, specially if they live far from PRC (Professional Regulation Commission) main offices which are normally located only in major cities. Even professionals in Metro Manila where the PRC head office is located, renewing PRC I.D. is not an easy task with the long queues that they have to put up with in the Sampaloc PRC H.O. Renewal of PRC Professional I.D. or license is an every 3-years ritual for professionals.
Now here's a good news for all PRC-licensed professionals renewing their I.D. or license. They can now renew their I.D./licenses at the mall. Please read the PRC advisory below.
Posted by PRC in its official website on 9/4/2012 :
The Professional Regulation Commission is happy to announce the simultaneous opening of PRC I.D. Renewal Centers in nine (9) Metro Manila malls and four (4) provincial malls on September 5, 2012.
Applicants may proceed to any of the nine Metro Manila SM Malls, which include SM Mall of Asia, SM Novaliches, SM Marikina, SM Masinag, SM Manila, SM Quiapo, SM Harrison Plaza, SM Sta. Mesa and SM Sucat; and the four provincial malls; namely, SM Bacoor, SM Dasmariñas, SM Calamba and SM Lipa City, for the renewal of their Professional Identification Cards and the subsequent issuance/release of their renewed professional IDs after seven (7) working days.
PRC Chairperson Teresita R. Manzala stated that the PRC ID Renewal Center at the Malls is another milestone in the Commission’s e-Services projects. Under this public-private partnership, she said that professionals wishing to renew their PRC IDs will now be able to file their applications and claim their IDs at SM Malls at their own convenience, seven days a week and during mall hours, thus effectively extending PRCs services even during weekends and after government office hours.
