In concern as a partner of the Philippine Professional Commission. In administering appropriate Licensure examination abroad as mandated in executive order 835 dated October 6, 2009.
“The PPO offers special review classes and the training to prospective examiners that could give them better chances of passing their respective professional board examinations through the Special Professional Li censure Board Examination or SPLBE.
