How to Renew your Real Estate Broker License at PRC this 202220 March 2022
Many expired PRC license, including real estate licenses for real estate brokers, may be lengthy and time-consuming to renew if you don't plan ahead. That's why it's great news that the Professional Regulation Commission or PRC released Resolution No. 1444(A) last year that extends the renewal of the Professional Identification Card (PIC) or the license card.
This means that professionals who still lack the required CPD credit units or Continuing Professional Development units can still have their licenses renewed until December 31, 2022.
But the much better news is, with the COVID-19 pandemic still at large in the country, PRC is now accepting applications to renew its PRC license online through their PRC website!
