RESOLUTION: Professional Title "LPT" for licensed Teacher (LET passer)

This is pursuant to Board Resolution No. 01 – 2017 which says appending professional title "LPT" will give an impression that the bearer is a bona fide registered and licensed professional.

The implementation will be same with other professional titles such as MD for Medical Doctor, RN for Registered Nurse, Engr. for Engineer, RPT for Registered Physical Therapist, to name a few.

Meanwhile, PRC warned that any person or individual who uses and appends such title to his/her name but is not in fact or found not to be a duly registered and licensed Professional Teacher shall be meted with the corresponding sanctions as prescribed in the General Penalty Clause of R.A.
