I’m just curious, i want to take the exam as it has been my dream and goal career wise. I am taking Masters in Environment and Natural Resource Management at University of the Philippines Open University and I wonder why it’s not included in the list of those who can take the exam.

Hi Rona! I base my list on several references in FB posts and groups of EnPs. I have not encountered that Master’s program in any of these.

I suggest you ask your institute directly to see if the program qualifies you.
