DTI requires contractors to undergo PCAB seminars

DAGUPAN CITY – The Department of Trade and Industry is urging contractors to attend the two-day Authorized Managing Officers (AMO) Course  as a  requirement in the release of a Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board (PCAB) license.
Director Peter Mangabat of  DTI-Pangasinan said the AMO Course completion is now a requirement in the release of  a PCAB license, whether  renewal or original issuance. 
The 16-hour AMO course shall cover laws and regulations pertinent to the construction industry such as the National Building Code , Labor Laws, Taxation, Government Procurement Reform Act , Internal Revenue Code, Build-Operate-Transfer Law and the Local Government Code.
“We would like to correct the mistaken belief of contractors that possession of a  DTI business name or SEC registration are sufficient to operate  legitimately as contractor for private domestic construction,” Mangabat  said. 
Mangabat enjoined the unlicensed contractors  to apply for a PCAB license  to avoid possible penalties and future inconveniences.

The AMO course, slated on January 21-22, 2016 in Quezon City will require a registration fee of P5,000 per participant. It is one of the technical seminar offered by the Society of Philippine Electrotechnical Contractors and Suppliers (SPECS), Inc. (VHS/PIA-1Pangasinan)
