RA 9258 Final Copy In Congress

If anyone wants to get the official copy of the RA 9258 or the Guidance and Counseling Act of 2004, I found it in the Congress of the Philippines' website, particularly in their Download Center. Here is their website where you yourself can download it: I purchased a copy of the Rules and Regulation of RA 9258 at the PRC this afternoon. It costs P305, and can be requested at the Records Section of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

This is very important as we look into the law in the light of what's happening lately: the controversy of allowing to take the 1st Board Exam in Guidance & Counseling even those who have only college degrees in Guidance and Counseling as well as allied disciplines but without Masters degrees in Guidance and Counseling. I remember very well when we were organizing the IPCAP way back 2006 that those who will be allowed to take the Board Exams should have their Masters or PhDs in Guidance and Counseling. Before I say anything more on this, I decided to read these documents first and then write here my thoughts. Please pray for this matter which will definitely be something very important for the profession of Guidance and Counseling. God bless
