Step-by-step Tutorial for the PRC Online Application for Psychometrician Licensure Exam

NEW UPDATE

(As of March 11, 2014) - Although the Psychometrician option is available on the drop down menu at PRC's online application, a friend verified at the PRC that it is not yet functional or operational, hope soon!)

(March 4, 2014) - Online Application for Licensure Examination of Psychometrician now Available - check procedure below or visit this link -
 




Well for those among you who are excited like me in taking the licensure exam I might as well share some info here that I hope will be helpful. Particularly beneficial to some of our readers who are in far flung areas away from the Professional Regulation Commission Office and Regional offices. It is not easy to call PRC especially perhaps with the thousands of clients they deal with (hope they install more phones and employ more staff to answer public calls). Well also, it is the challenge of those of us doing self-review, unlike when you join a review center your life would be lot more easier and you be lot more informed (some review centers would facilitate processing their reviewers application), so for those wanting a list of review centers check this link  http://psychometricpinas.blogspot.com/p/pyschology-review-centers.html - I have not availed any of these review centers services, since this blog serves to inform so we are providing this list - which needs to be updated. 

After several calls I was able to talk to a lady at the of the Application for Examination Unit at PRC. She informed me that it might be August when they will have the Psychometrician online application ready. I just hope it is not true, hope they will not make examinees cram applying so close the examination date.

So for those who have access to the internet, here are steps, a sort of tutorial (but for now until close the exam date try to regularly monitor PRC website for announcements) on how to do go about the online application for the Psychometrician Licensure Exam or board exam this coming October 28 and 29, 2014. I learned that there's no use of lining up at PRC if you have not accomplished the online application. 


So apply first online and then visit PRC office near you.
