On January 10, 2018, we have received a notice from EMB Central Office – Memorandum Circular for the “Basic and Refresher Course Training”, under the issuance: MC 2018-001 (Deferment of the Conduct of Basic and Advance Training for Pollution Control Officers for Renewal Purposes) (see attached document). This MC instructs the accredited Training Institutions to defer accepting participants who are due for renewing their accreditation. Further, the renewing PCOs should attend the Advance Training Module to be released by EMB central soon, for use of the Training Institutions. We are attaching a (an unofficial) chart to summarize the provisions of said MC.


We are Pollution Control Association of the Philippines (PCAPI) Region IV-A Chapter, an association of Pollution Control Officers (PCOs) representing various industries in CALABARZON, aimed at helping co-PCOs build capacity in the areas of environmental compliance and sustainable development.
