  4. Hi Sir,

    Good day!

    Do you have sample copy of certification to be signed by registered chemist from a company? Thank you and godbless!

    1. Hello, Cheryl!

      The certification letter should indicate the number of years of your laboratory work experience, as well as the list of duties and responsibilities concerning your lab work. Have this signed by a registered chemist working full time in the said laboratory. If there are no registered chemists available, certification of work experience can also be done by a non-chemist supervisor in the lab or by HR.

      Submit this along with the other required documents during your application.

  7. Hello!
    Is it necessary to take chemistry subjects from other school to complete the required 30 units?

    thank you

    1. Hello Carmina! 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).

  8. Good day. I’m a BS Biology graduate. I have 15 units of chemistry and almost 3 years work experience in a laboratory. No OJT. I’m still lacking of units to comply for the 30 units. May I ask if there is still other way for me to complete the 30 units? Thank you.

    1. Hello Miel!

      Here are some of our suggestions for you:
      1. Obtain more Chemistry-related work experience (5 years = 12 units max); and
      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.

  9. Hi! I would like to ask if it’s wrong to attach RChT on our names in reports, etc.? This was an on-going confusion to us as registered chem. techs. since the first batch. Is there no abbreviation for our profession? If there’s none, do you have an idea if it’s a plan of the chemistry board to clarify the suffix for chem. techs in the future? Thank you!

    1. Hello, Sheng!

      According to RA 10657, only chemists may affix their designation “RCh” after their name. For Chemical Technicians, no designation was specifically mentioned. Hence, it’s not authorized to use “RChT” for that matter. We’ll post some updates if the Board of Chemistry clarifies this matter. But of course, upon passing the ChemTech Licensure Exam, you are authorized to affix “Registered Chemical Technician” after or below your name since you are duly licensed according to the law. I hope this helps.

      1. That’s sad. Wala naman palang priviledge na attachment sa name kundi purely obligations lang. Pang “primary ID” lang pala. Buti nalaman ko to. Sayang pera para maghabol sa 45 CPD units.

    1. Hello Mark!

      While we await the updating of the PRC Website on the list of ChemTech Licensure Exam application requirements, it’s best to assume that the Transcript of Records needs to have the remarks:

      “For Board Examination Purposes”
      as the Chemist Licensure Exam and other exams also require this.

  10. Hi what are the requirements for BS chemistry 4th yr undergrad to be able to qualify for Chem tech board exams? I’ll be graduating next semester but I’ve completed my units required for chem tech application.

    1. Hi, Jj. According to the PRC, the following are the requirements for Chemical Technicians Board Exam:

      QUALIFICATIONS FOR APPLICANTS FOR CHEMICAL TECHNICIAN

      -A Citizen of the Philippines or a citizen of a foreign country which grants the corresponding privilege to Filipinos
      -Of good moral character and of sound mind
      -Has successfully completed at least thirty (30) units of undergraduate Chemistry courses from an institution duly recognized by CHED or the TESDA. The courses should include both lecture and laboratory courses in the following subjects: General Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. A certified true copy of the applicant’s transcript must accompany the application.
      -Has not been convicted of an offense involving moral turpitude by a court of competent jurisdiction

      DOCUMENTARY REQUIREMENTS

      -Original and photocopy of the National Statistics Office (NSO)-issued Certificate of Birth
      -NSO-issued Marriage Certificate (in case of married female)
      -National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) clearance
      -Certification of Good Moral Character issued by any of the following: barangay, church, school or employer
      -Certified true copy of the Transcript of Records
      -Certification of work experience in a chemical laboratory by a registered chemist (Only for those who have completed less than 30 units of chemistry)

      Important Note: Since you are still an Undergrad, you still need to submit TOR with “”For Board Exam Purposes” notation. You need to request this from your school/university. During your online application, you need to input your date of graduation. In this case, other applicants were able to apply by indicating the date of release of their TOR as their graduation date. However, this may not be the same for all PRC offices. For a more accurate set of guidelines, inquire and clarify this at PRC office near you. I hope this helps. More power.

    1. Hello, Ariane!

      The Live Online Sections (H and Tc) are like in-classroom sections, but the lectures will be carried out online via Zoom. All the classes and exams are scheduled, and since the classes are live, you can engage with your lecturers, ask questions, and participate in interactive learning activities during these sessions. The Live-Online lectures will also be recorded, so if you miss a session, you may rely on the recordings to study at your own pace. We do highly encourage attending the live online classes, though, when you can, for you to be able to engage with your instructors and get the best interactive review experience at a consistent pace, which is important for success in the board exam.

      In the Online Review/Refresher Programs, all lectures are in the form of pre-recorded videos. You will be given instant access to these videos, the online quizzes and simulation exams once your enrollment has been confirmed. Since the lessons are pre-recorded, you can access these anytime, anywhere, at your own pace and convenience, using your mobile, tablet, or desktop.

    1. Hi Rica.

      PRC states on their website that certification of work experience in a chemical laboratory can be submitted for those who have completed less than 30 units of chemistry, but there’s no specific PRC Form mentioned. As far as we know, you can submit a normal certification letter as long as it indicates your number of years of lab work experience, and is signed by a registered chemist working full time in the said laboratory. If there are no registered chemists available, certification of work experience can also be done by a non-chemist supervisor in the lab or by HR.

  30. Hi, I am a BS Biology major in Zoology graduate, and I would like to know if I am qualified to take the Chemistry Technician examination. I only had general chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and biochemistry subjects during my undergraduate years.

    1. Hello Jae! 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. How many Chemistry units were you able to earn during your undergrad? If your earned units are less than 30, here are some of our suggestions for you:

      1. You may add units from your Chemistry-related work experience (5 years = 12 units) to your total unit count. This conversion can also be prorated, for example, 2.5 years of work experience is equivalent to 6 units.
      2. Do you have OJT units (Chemistry-related) that can also be added to the total unit count?

      Happy to help!

  31. I’m a BS Medical Technology graduate. May I ask if Clinical Chemistry subjects we had in the curriculum can be credited to allow us to take the ChemTech Licensure Exam? Thanks po.

    1. Hello Francisco!

      Generally, Chemistry and Chemistry-related subjects (including those involving chemical analysis, for example, Food Chemistry and Analysis) are counted. You may send us a copy of your Transcript of Records (TOR) at info@sisonreview.com for evaluation.

      To clarify, we think it’s still 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.

      Happy to help!

      Best regards,
      The SRC Team
