Building a professional career in the Philippines is now easier now that individuals can apply for a board examination or renew their license through a LERIS PRC account. 

The LERIS, or Licensure Examination and Registration Information System (LERIS) is the official portal of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to streamline their process. Below is a quick guide professionals can follow to learn how to register and utilize their accounts.

What is the purpose of LERIS?

Like other government organizations, the PRC has made a few of its services available online. The LERIS platform allows professionals to:

  • Apply for a board examination 
  • Reschedule their appointment
  • View their examination results
  • Register for a Professional ID card
  • Renew their license
  • Verify their rating

However, before an individual can use these features, they must register for a LERIS PRC account. Shifting to this system is more convenient for applicants since they no longer have to visit a PRC branch. Processing their transactions is also faster since the automated system lets them receive their professional documents quickly.

Accessing information on personal details, licensure requirements, and exam results is easier since they can view them online.
