Requirements for the Psychology Licensure Exam

If you 're planning to take the Psychometrician licensure exam this year you better prepare the following requirements:


  • NSO birth certificate
  • Original and certified true copy of Transcript of Records with your picture. Ask your registrar to give you a TOR for board exam purposes with your picture printed in the TOR. Also, the TOR should have the Special Order number printed. If your school is exempted from issuing SO number, you need to get from your registrar the Certificate of Authentication and Validation from CHED.
  • Original and photocopy of NBI clearance
  • Three (3) notarized certificates of good moral character preferably from your employer, school, church leader, baranggay captain.
  • 2 colored passport size pictures with white background and name tag
  • Cedula (be sure the year is the same from the time you file to PRC)

You may opt to self -review but make sure to read everything about the following subjects: 

According to Section 14 of R.A. 10029 these are the examination subjects for Psychologists:

a. Advance  Theories of Personality
b. Advance Abnormal Psychology
c. Advance Psychological Assessment
d. Psychological Counseling Psychotherapy

Section 15 indicates the examination subjects for Psychometricians:

a. Theories of Personality
b. Abnormal Psychology
c. Industrial Psychology
d. Personality Assessment


If you want to try it on Review Centers here's a few I found on the web. However, the tuition fee for those who  want to take the Psychologist licensure exam would be higher than those of the Psychometricians.

Review Centers for Psycholgist/Psychometrician Licensure Exam:


I haven't included San Juan de Letran's Review Class because the last day of application was April 30. You can check other schools to be sure if they offer review classes for the exam. I think the tuition fee ranges from 8 to 15,000 php.

    Thankyou. :)

  5. Hi misselayneous:-)..i graduated in 2010 and im currently working in a call center as an agent. I dont have a job experience yet related to my course ( i.e. human resources officer, guidance counselor ). I' ve read that you need to have atleast 2 years working experience in the field of psychology in order for you to qualify for the exam. Is this true?

    1. Hi Rommel! Work experience related to the field of psychology is not needed if you want to take the licensure exam. However, you're only qualified to take the licensure exam for Psychometricians since an MA degree is needed for the Psychologists' licensure exam. The work experience is only needed if you are working as a psychometrician or psychologist for the past few years and wanted to apply for a license without examination.

  6. Hi, Misselayneous! Medyo confused ako.. I graduated in 2012, im now working as Secretary to the VP for 1yr and I also have experience in HR for 10 months on the same company.. Im interested to take the Psychometrician Board exam, but when I asked my Dean, sabi niya sa akin kailangan daw na PSYCHOMETRICIAN ang current work para maging qualified to take the exam.. totoo ba? sa First Sat. na kasi ng august yung start ng review eh.. Nag-offer kasi ng review yng school na pinag-graduate-tan ko..

    1. Hey Kimberly! As far as I know no need ng work experience as psychometrician to take the licensure exam. As long as you have completed the required subjects on the board exam and the papers required (as specified above) you can take it. Need lang ng work experience if you're qualified for license without examination.

  7. Good pm! Kelangan po ba na notarized by a lawyer yung good moral? Or pwede na basta may dry seal nung institution na nagbigay sayo ng gmc?
    Tsaka ano po bang format nung nametag sa picture? Dapat po ba middle initial lang or middle name?
    THANK YOU SO MUCH

    1. Hi Ishiel! yes po dapat notarized ng lawyer ung tatlong GMC and with regards to the picture kung maikli lang nman ung name mo pde cguro ung middle name ang ilagay kung kasya. Pero much better cguro kung initials n lang since for identification purposes lang nman ung name sa picture. nsa documents naman ung whole name mo eh.

    1. Hi! A friend of mine suggested that it's better to find a place within the university belt, though I know it would be crowded..so it's better to book early.

    1. Hi Roxanne! As far as I know you can qualify to take the licensure exam for psychologists if you have completed all the required board exam subjects mentioned above, completed a master's degree and given that you have trained/worked under the supervision of a licensed psychologist for a minimum of 200 hours without any problem.

  20. Ahh I see so basically I should have conpleted Masters with Thesis then, to take licensure exam‎.
