BREAKING NEWS: Now Mandatory for First Timer OFW to Take Up Pre-Employment Orientation Seminar Online (PEOS) of POEA with Certificate


This is mandatory for first time overseas workers. Do you know that you can take up and study for FREE via ONLINE now your Pre-Employment Orientation Seminar from POEA? And after you finish the online course and passed the short quizzes, you can download or print your PEOS Certificate. 


Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz, chairman of the Governing Board of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) recently announced that the Board has approved a resolution requiring all first time overseas land-based and sea-based worker-applicants to undergo mandatory Pre-Employment Orientation Seminar (PEOS) through the PEOS Online website  at no cost.
“The PEOS is designed to help an  OFW prepare in terms of having  the right information that he/she needs so he/she  can be assured of  success in working abroad,” said Baldoz, adding that the PEOS Online is free and easily accessible  to  worker-applicants.
Governing Board Resolution No. 6, Series of 2016 was signed by Secretary Baldoz; POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac, vice chairperson; and board members Estrelita Hizon, Alexander E. Asuncion, Milagros Isabel A. Cristobal, and Felix M. Oca.
In issuing  the resolution, Baldoz said the Governing Board realizes the need to provide better protection and empowerment to prospective OFWs through a comprehensive education program that provides adequate, relevant, and useful information to guide overseas worker-applicants in  the  important decision on whether to consider overseas employment over local employment or other livelihood opportunities available in the country.
To effect such a comprehensive education program, Baldoz said the POEA has made available the PEOS modules online.  The online version of the PEOS boasts of comprehensive self-training modules that highlight everything prospective OFWs need to know about working overseas, such as the application requirements and procedures, as well as POEA services using video clips and presentation slides.
The resolution, Baldoz added,  also addresses the clamor  from various  non-government organizations, civil society, and  even industry leaders to make the PEOS mandatory, particularly to first time overseas worker-applicants.
“The PEOS was instituted as a welfare intervention to complement the Pre-Departure  Orientation Seminar (PDOS) in providing information  that would prepare  and guide workers in making a responsible choice about going abroad,” she said.
Overseas worker-applicants can log on to www.peos.poea.gov.ph anytime at the comfort of their home, in an internet cafe, or even through their mobile devices, to experience PEOS almost similarly to as if they were doing it inside the training room.
