“We want to inform that the Commission Resolution announces the approval to conduct Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers (BLEPT) in Bangkok, Thailand,” Ms. Garcia said in the letter.

“It will be sent to POLO-Bangkok once signed by Chair Pilando,” she added.

Garcia also stated that the applicants for the examination must prepare valid passport, Transcript of Records, and the examination fee amounting to US$40.00. The chief also said “cedula” is not one of the requirements for the special board examination.

“PRC will announce the complete procedure of the online application system once it is ready,” Garcia wrote in the letter.

Dr. Edgar Eleguen, Consul Academic Dean for Indo-China Region of United Nations International Open University and a forerunner of the conduct of the licensure exam for teachers in  Thailand, announced through a Facebook post that the Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers (BLEPT) on September 24 will be at the Ekamai International School in Bangkok.

PPRD’s Partner for Change in Thailand initiated the move to bring the licensure examination for teachers in the kingdom through letters of request addressed to President Rodrigo Duterte in September and December last year. PRC’s approval came in January 2017.
