Licensure exams for Pinoy teachers in Thailand set in September 2017


BANGKOK: The Philippine Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) through the efforts of PRRD’s Partners for Change – Thailand Chapter will conduct the Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers (BLEPT) in Bangkok, Thailand in September this year.

Last September and December 2016, PPRD’s Partner for Change initiated the move to bring the licensure examination for teachers in Thailand through a letter of request addressed to President Rodrigo Duterte and was duly approved in January this year.

The memorandum of approval sent to Ambassador Gion V. Gounet, UN Ambassador of Goodwill and Chairman of PRRD’s Partners for Change – Thailand Chapter, by the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) stated that “the Commission approves the request for the conduct of BLEPT in Bangkok in September 2017, simultaneous with the conduct of the Local BLEPT.

The BLEPT Examination is scheduled on September 24, 2017 at 8:00 to 1:30 pm for Bachelor of Elementary Education and 8:00 to 6:30 pm for Bachelor of Secondary Education takers.

The registration will commence next month and applicants are advised to prepare the following requirements:

  1. Valid Passport
  2. Transcript of Records (with or without scanned pictures and remarks “for board exam purposes”).

The applicants from Thailand are informed through a Facebook post by Dr. Edgar Eleguen (PRRD’s Partner for Change member) that the Professional Regulatory Commission will send an official advisory to all applicants on how to go about the procedures using the Online Application System (OAS) which is just similar to procedures undertaken by the applicants in local exam.

Applicants may also visit the PRC official website at for the complete list of requirements.
