In an announcement made in August 2020 on their website and social media pages, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) informed the public that due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the Philippines, October 2020 licensure exams–which included the Chemist and Chemical Technician Licensure Exams initially scheduled on October 20-22, 2020–were postponed to 2021. PRC has since released on their website the 2021 examination schedule.

  1. I graduated as Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology major in Food Technology with Gen. Chemistry units of 3 only and OJT (in food manufacturing) with 30 units and currently working in a food manufacturing company for 6 years as Lab. Analyst (conducting physico-chem.analysis, process technician and micro analysis). May I know if I am qualified for the Chem. Tech.exam? Since I only have 3 units during my college course.
    If not, what are the requirements?

    1. Hello Marina! 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. You may add units from your Chemistry-related work experience (5 years = 12 units) to your total unit count. If your OJT is also Chemistry-related, that can also be added to the total unit count.

      Happy to help!

      Yours truly,
      The SRC Team
