Do you want to renew your PRC license? Application for renewal of your license is now more convenient and less hassle. With the use of the PRC Licensure Examination and Registration Information System (LERIS), you will be able to do your transaction online. But you will still need to go to the PRC office to claim your renewed license.
This can be possible for Overseas Filipino Workers as well. They can renew their license online, made the payment online, and ask their family member to claim the PRC card.
The relative will need to bring a Special Power of Attorney, a valid ID, and the payment confirmation form.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Act of 2016 states that professionals must have the required number of CPD units from seminars and training before renewing their PRC licenses.
However, renewal of Professional Identification Cards (PIC) without full CPD Compliance is accepted until December 2021. This means that you can renew your license even you did not meet the required CPD Units.
Effective March 1, 2019, the PRC has reduced the number of required CPD units to 15. The PRC also issued Resolution No. 2019-1146, which amended the implementing rules and regulations of the CPD Act of 2016.
Among the changes are: Overseas Filipino Workers will not need any CPD Units when renewing their license, CPD Unites required will not be more than 15, recent board passers will not be covered with CPD units for their first renewal.
