WCAG 2.0 contains 12 guidelines organized under 4 principles: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (POUR for short). There are testable success criteria for each guideline. Compliance to these criteria is measured in three levels: A, AA, or AAA. A guide to understanding and implementing Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 is available at:

PRC and HDOH renewed Memorandum of Understanding

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announces its renewed partnership with the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) on 6 June 2023. The initial partnership was sealed on 30 May 2018 and remained in effect until May 2021.

The partnership was established through the recent Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by the PRC Chairperson, Atty. Charito A. Zamora, Hawaii Director of Health, Dr. Kenneth S. Fink, State of Hawaii Deputy Attorney General Kaena Keao, and Board of Medical Technology Chairperson, Hon. Marilyn A. Cabal-Barza.

The MOU aimed to remove some regulatory barriers that currently apply to Filipino Registered Medical Technologists (RMT) seeking employment in Hawaii through the recognition of their training and experience by the State of Hawaii.

The benefits of this renewed partnership include WAIVER of:

1. applicant's accreditation by a certifying agency acceptable to HDOH; and

2. one (1) year of full-time experience as a medical laboratory technician in a clinical

laboratory acceptable to HDOH.

To learn more about on the MOU, interested and qualified Filipino RMTs may contact the PRC Regional Office - Regulation Division.
