The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) formally opened its new offsite service center in Robinsons Place Valencia City, Bukidnon to help decongest the volume of clients in its Cagayan de Oro City office.
The new service center is expected to serve an estimated 50 to 100 clients daily and is also open for those coming from nearby areas in the Bukidnon province, the commission said.
Present at the ceremony were PRC Chairperson Charito A. Zamora, PRC Commissioner Erwin M. Enad, PRC Region X Director Julie L. Sabalza, Professional Regulatory Board (PRB) for Electronics Engineering Chairman Alnar L. Detalla, PRB for Real Estate Service Board Member Pilar T. Banaag, and other PRC officials and employees.
"PRC must strengthen its collaboration and engagement to the stakeholders to bring services closer to the public," said Zamora in his opening speech.
"The presence of PRC in Valencia will bring the professionals closer to them in availing the various PRC services. With this initiative, our professionals in Bukidnon Province will no longer experience the hassle of transacting and going to the PRC Cagayan de Oro," said Bukidnon Fourth District Congresswoman Laarni L. Roque who was also present at the event held last Nov. 26.
PRC Valencia Offsite Service Center is open from Mondays to Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Among the services it offers are processing applications for licensure examinations, initial registration, and renewal of Professional Identification Cards, PRC noted.
