    I am a board passer Mining Engineer and I will be 28 years old this coming April 2018. Am I qualified to apply for PCG? Is there a consideration for the age limit?
    I am so much interested to apply if still qualified.

    Thank you.

    Reply
  48. Hi Sir/Maam

    Good Day!

    Regarding this note:
    For officer candidates, a bachelor’s degree is not enough. The applicant must have a PRC license holder or owns a Civil Service eligibility upon your application in the PCG.

    What if an applicant was a graduate of BS Computer Engineering w/c we all know that this field doesn’t have or not requiring board exam, is still disqualified for officer position?
    or passing civil service exam would substitute for this requirement?

    Thank you!

    Reply
    • Yes, you have to take, pass the Civil Service Exam and obtain a 2nd level eligibility to qualify for an officer position in the PCG.
