The Professional Regulatory Commission Regional Office VIII unveiled its plans to open an offsite office in Calbayog City during a courtesy call with Mayor Diego Rivera last May 19, 2021.
OIC Regional Director Armond Englis, together with Dioscoro Lumagbas and Chito Caidic discussed the PRC RO8’s plan to set up shop at one of the offices in the Government Offices Center Building in Brgy. Bagacay. They’ve already finished their initial site visit and hopes to be up and running before the scheduled Licensure Exam for Teachers in September 2021. The office will serve a central hub for the 3 provinces of the island of Samar.
The proposed hub will be able to accommodate licensure examinations and other services normally offered at the main Regional Office in Tacloban City. This initiative will reduce the travel time and will pose as a closer alternative for the people of Samar.
Good news, indeed.
