I am a Biology graduate and I’m with great interest to know if these subjects were included from chemistry-related units: General Physics, General Biology 1 & 2, Microbiology, Morphoanatomy (Plant & Animal), Cell & Molecular Biology, Physiology (Plant & Animal), Genetics, Systematic Biology, Science Technology & Society, Developmental Biology, and Research in Biology 2.
    I need to know so I have my idea if my units were good enough to try and take chemtech board exam. Thank you!

  37. hi. im a graduating bs ChE student and i want to take the chemical technician examination this October. but the problem is im a transferee student. i have finished 3 years bs che in my previous school and have done inorganic, organic, analytical and physical chemistry. is it enough to just use my previous school’s issued TOR?

  38. Hi. am a licensed teacher. I graduated with a degree in Bachelor in Secondary Education Major in Physical Science. Prior to that, I also took Chemistry courses. May I know if I am qualified to take the exam?

    1. Hello Philip! You are qualified to take the Chemical Technician Licensure Exam as long as you meet the minimum 30 units requirement in Chemistry and Chemistry-related subjects (including those involving chemical analysis, for example, Food Chemistry and Analysis).

      Take note that a maximum of 12 units can be added to your total unit count with 5 years of work experience. This conversion can also be prorated, for example, 2.5 years of work experience is equivalent to 6 units.

      Here are some of our suggestions for you:
      1. Obtain more Chemistry-related work experience (5 years = 12 units max);
      2. Take ChemTech subjects that are offered by educational institutions to augment unit deficiencies. The Board of Chemistry recently released guidelines on this and we’ll keep you updated regarding this matter; and
      3. Do you have OJT units (Chemistry-related) that can increase the total unit count?

  40. Hi, ask ko lang po I only have 5 units of Gen. Chem and i have no OJT related to chem as stated in my TOR, and I am currently working in a laboratory for almost 3 years, is there any deadline in which at this certain period; if di makapasa or even at this moment di pa po ako (for example) nakaka earn ng atleast 30 units to qualify for the Chemtech exam will be given for those who are currently working in the laboratories? and based on section 46.1 of RA 10657 “That only registered chemist and Chemical Technicians holding calid CR’s and PIC……..” pano po kaming mga currently working in the lab ? may chance po ba na I-terminate kami by our employer?

    1. Hi, Mark.

      There is no particular deadline, but it will depend on when your company will be able to apply for Certificate of Authority to Operate.

      During inspection by the Board of Chemistry with regards to the application, one of the aspects included is the licensing of employees performing chemical analyses. If there will be personnel who will not be able to comply with the licensure requirements, then the Board of Chemistry considers a commitment from the concerned personnel to take the Chemical Technician Licensure Exam and become registered Chemical Technicians at a later date.

He is planning to complete 30units of chemtech subjects. He already have 10 units of chemtech subjects plus 12 units equivalent for his work experience. What are the subjects he need to take to be able to complete the 8 units? and actually we are not really sure if his 10 units are credited since he took them in 1982.

    May i ask if i am qualified to take chem tech board even though I’m a food tech graduate with 26 units of chemistry only. But i was an intern (6 units ojt) in Alaska Milk corp. wherein chemical analysis was part of our activities. Will the 6 units be credited to the 30-unit requirement?

    If yes, may i also know if it’s necessary to have a certication from licensed chemist? Or it would still be acceptable to have a certication from a licensed chem tech?

    I’m looking forward for a quick response regarding my concern. Thank you and God bless!

    1. Hello Zyra Gail,

      If your on-the-job training (OJT) activities are related to chemical analysis, you may include your OJT units (indicated in the Transcript of Records) in the total unit count. During your application, submit a certification stating your OJT job description in order for it to count as additional units.

      According to published guidelines, the Certification requirement from a registered chemist applies to that obtained from work experience, but not mentioned for the Certification requirement from OJT activities. To clarify, it is best to consult the PRC regarding this matter.

  66. 1. What if i dont have a chemistry units but i have 4 year experience in laboratory, is there any chance that i can take the examination?
    2. If i am not qualified what program is best for me to take?

    1. Hello, Ronald! You are qualified to take the Chemical Technician Licensure Exam as long as you meet the minimum 30 units requirement in Chemistry and Chemistry-related subjects (including those involving chemical analysis, for example, Food Chemistry and Analysis).

      Take note that a maximum of 12 units can be added to your total unit count with 5 years of work experience. This conversion can also be prorated, for example, 2.5 years of work experience is equivalent to 6 units.

      Here are some of our suggestions for you:
      1. Obtain more Chemistry-related work experience (5 years = 12 units max);
      2. Take ChemTech subjects that are offered by educational institutions to augment unit deficiencies. The Board of Chemistry recently released guidelines on this and we’ll keep you updated regarding this matter; and
      3. Do you have OJT units (Chemistry-related) that can increase the total unit count?

If you are planning to take more units for the ChemTech Licensure Exam, as far as we know, certificate programs for those who wish to complete the 30-unit requirement for ChemTech licensure exam application are being offered by Silliman University and the University of San Carlos.

      To clarify, it is best to consult the PRC/Board of Chemistry regarding this matter.

  93. Good evening! I studied BS Pharmacy for two years. May I know if the Physical Pharmacy course can be included so that my 30 units are complete? It’s chemistry-related but it doesn’t have chemistry in its course name. Just wanted to make sure. Thank you!

    1. Hi, Francose!

      Generally, Chemistry and Chemistry-related subjects (including those involving chemical analysis, for example, Food Chemistry and Analysis) are counted.

      To clarify, we think it’s best that you present your TOR to the PRC and Board of Chemistry and let them evaluate the same. As much as we would want to help, it is in the authority of the PRC and Board of Chemistry to make the final decision regarding licensure exam eligibility.
