In a commencement exercise held via video conferencing on October 27, four (4) Biliran Province State University (BiPSU) employees have completed the Philippine Quality Award (PQA) Assessors Preparatory Course (APC), a pathway to becoming members of the PQA Pool of Assessors.

In a partnership between the Department of Trade and Industry-Competitiveness Bureau (DTI-CB) and the Philippine Quality Award Foundation, Inc., the program aims to constitute a team of experts who can evaluate organizations that are qualified for the Award and serve as representatives for the PQA Program. The criteria used in the selection of assessors include breadth and depth of experience, diversity of expertise, demeanor and work ethics, leadership and external representation, and knowledge of business, specialized areas, and practices and improvement strategies leading to performance excellence.

Additionally, Mr. Penaranda also received the "Most Collaborative Award," one of the four special awards given during the graduation day.
