Electronics Technician (ECT) Licensure Awareness

Electronics Technician (ECT) Licensure Awareness towards recognition as 
Professional in the Philippines

On February 28, 2012, the IECEP-KSA-CRC held an Officer’s Meeting at Dr. Cafe – Khurais Road, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and created a new committee solely for the Electronics Technician Profession. The said committee is the new product of IECEP-KSA-CRC from the collaborated ideas of its Officers led by Engr. Jandee R. Bonifacio on how to expand the services of the organization to all Electronics Practitioners in Central Region-Saudi Arabia. The Committee is fully described as: Electronics Technician (ECT) Licensure Awareness towards recognition as Professional in the Philippines pursuant to Republic Act No. 9292 - Electronics Engineering Law of 2004. The main objective of this committee is to help our non-licensed Electronics Practitioners especially but not limited to those who are not Electronics Engineering (ECE) Graduates to secure ECT License towards recognition as Professional in the Philippines. The beneficiaries of this committee are the Associate Members (Non-Licensed Electronics Practitioners) and IECEP Organization in general.

The following are the activities of the committee: a.) Encourage non-licensed Electronics Practitioners in Central Region- Saudi Arabia to register with IECEP-KSA-CRC as Associate Members. b.) Enlighten Associate Members on RA 9292 c.) Conduct FREE scheduled Studies/Review in preparation for Special Professional Licensure Board Examination (SPLBE)  d.) Help Associate Members in filing ECT Licensure Exam Application in PRC.

The committee is headed by: Engr. Catalino Criste (Chairperson), Engr. Jandee R. Bonifacio (Committee Head), Engr. Rito Banan (Committee Member), and Registered Master Electrician Rene Gamurot (Committee Member).

The Republic Act No. 9292 – Electronics Engineering Law of 2004 has stipulated many provisions about Electronics Technician Profession. One example of the many provisions of the Act is: ARTICLE III - EXAMINATION, REGISTRATION AND LICENSURE; SEC. 14. Qualifications for Examinations. - In order to be allowed to take the examination for Electronics Engineer or Electronics Technician, an applicant must, at the time of the filing of his/her application, establish to the satisfaction of the Board that: (d) For the Electronics Technician examinations:
(1) is a graduate of an Associate, Technician, Trade or Vocational course in electronics or, subject to the evaluation of the Board, such equivalent and/or related formal or non-formal course or program from any school, college, university or training institution recognized by the Government or the State where it is established, after completing a resident course or program of not less than two (2) years, or (2) has completed at least the minimum third-year equivalent of a Bachelor of Science program in Electronics and Communications Engineering or Electronics
Engineering program according to CHED guidelines, or, subject to the evaluation of the Board such equivalent and/or related engineering course or program from any school, institute, college or university recognized by the Government or State where it is established.

On March 2, 2012 FRIDAY, the FREE Studies/Reviews in preparation for Special Professional Licensure Board Examination (SPLBE) has been started, attended by 5 IECEP-KSA-CRC Officers/Reviewers and 8 interested Non-Licensed Electronics Practitioners. The Committee is confident that it can produce 100 percent ECT Board Passers if all its members will take this program seriously as the committee do.

If you are a Non-Licensed Electronics Practitioner living in Central Region-Saudi Arabia, join IECEP-KSA-CRC to avail this Noble Program and get a chance to become Professional in the Philippines.
