Manila, May 12, 2014 -- The Professional Regulation Commission announces the resumption of the conduct of the January Board Licensure Examination for Sanitary Engineers (BLESE) effective 2015 and the subsequent schedules.
The Board of Sanitary Engineering resolved to set aside Board Resolution No. 2 series of 2009 and to administer the BLESE twice a year on the months of January and August.
Republic Act No. 1364, the Professional Regulatory Law for the practice of Sanitary Engineering, provides that licensure examination for Sanitary Engineers will be administered twice a year, every last Monday of January and August of every year in the city of Manila.
On May 13, 2009, the Board of Sanitary Engineering provisionally suspended the conduct of the January schedule of the BLESE due to the decrease in the number of BLESE examinees at that time.
Meanwhile, Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) offering courses in Sanitary Engineering have strongly recommended for the resumption of the conduct of the January BLESE to accommodate the increasing number of examinees, as shown in recent years.
