RQAT updates

As an RQAT member, I visited seven schools in Region XI who were applying for government permit or recognition of their Information Technology Education programs. As an RQAT member we were tasked to:
  • Assist the Commission on Higher Education XI to conduct evaluation on schools applying for government permit and recognition of pertinent educational programs
  • Prepare reports based upon findings and recommend appropriate actions to the Commission on Higher Education Region XI
  • Coordinate with the Supervisor-in-Charge on various activities, such as schedule of travel, mode of evaluation and reporting of findings and recommendations

This is in pursuant to CMO 19, s. 1997 otherwise known as the operationalization of the Regional Quality Assessment Team (RQAT).

The schools I visited were:

  1. Academia de Davao College
  2. Davao Vision College
  3. Assumption College of Nabunturan
  4. Cor Jesu College
  5. University of Mindanao – Digos Campus
  6. Saint Thomas More – Tagum City
  7. Holy Cross of Sasa


Good evening sir..I just wanna ask if the Southeastern Mindanao Institute of Technology (SMIT) has a permit or their Information Technology education is already recognize by CHED? For the reason of I'm taking up now IT in the said school. Is it necessary that the school must first recognize by the CHED before offering a course for Information Technology or is it one of requirements?...

Thank You Sir... God bless

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hi Randy,

Just want to find the peace and order situation in Dakak, Dipolog? How lang from Dipolog City to Dakak itself? Is Dakak still the venue for the conference? Thanks

hi lynne,

Hello po :) Praise be Jesus and Mary.

Dakak is 30 to 40 minutes (by land) from Dipolog City. Zamboanga Del Norte is peaceful compared to those neighboring provinces (i guess, sorry). Malayo po cya sa mga news na nakikita nyo sa TV :) and as member of the local organizing committee we plan (we will) to tap the services and support of the Provincial Security Group and the local PNP. Participants will be brought to dakak on the 2nd night of the convention which happens to be the Jedi Night (according to SUN-JEDI, so far as a result of initial talks with Hazel Cainglet, Jedi Mktg. Director). The main venue is the Zamboanga Del Norte Convention and Exhibition Center, Gen. Luna St., Dipolog City.

Sir Randy, unta nakatabang ni nga tubag hehehehe Mabuhay ka Sir Randy :)

God Bless
