With the aim to make the qualifying process for Employment Permit System (EPS)-Korea faster, a computer-based testing facility for the required Korean language test is now available at the main building of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) in Mandaluyong City.
The launching of the testing facility was led by officials of the POEA, Labor Department and Human Resources Department of Korea through its EPS Center in Manila.
The new facility can accommodate up to 40 examinees at a time and has a total area of 238 square meters. The construction of this new facility took Php4.5 million.
According to the head of POEA, Hans Leo J. Cacdac, the new facility would replace the usual paper-based exam which had been held in the country for 8 times since 2005.
The CBT can only be used by former EPS workers who had finished their contracts in Korea and wish to work there again.
