On Friday, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) was awaiting the approval of President Rodrigo Duterte to expand limited face-to-face classes to three more degree programs.

During the awarding of Certificate of Authority to reopen limited face-to-face classes in Mindoro Occidental, CHED Chairman Prospero De Vera III said in a virtual press conference that he told the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) two weeks ago that he’ll be asking permission from President Duterte to expand limited face-to-face to Maritime, Engineering, and Hotel and Restaurant Management which hands-on experience was needed.

Two weeks ago, I told the IATF that I will be asking permission from the President to expand limited face-to-face to Engineering, Maritime, and HRM which hands-on experience is needed,” said De Vera.

De Vera said that aside from medicine and allied health sciences, the Commission on Higher Education pushed for the expansion of limited face-to-face classes for three degree programs because those degree programs were the courses that students really needed hands-on experience.

According to De Vera, the IATF already endorsed to President Duterte its proposal to expand the conduct of limited face-to-face classes for other degree programs.

De Vera said that the move to expand limited face-to-face classes for other degree programs came after the Commission on Higher Education found out that there’s low coronavirus infection among medical and allied health students — some of whom started attending in-person classes as early as December 2020.

The Commission on Higher Education said that so far, there were more than 100 higher education institutions that offered medicine and allied health science that have been allowed to hold limited face-to-face classes nationwide.
