How to Apply for DICT PNPKI Digital Certificate on DepEd LMS

This post aims to assist teachers in applying for the Philippine National Public Key Infrastructure (PNPKI) digital certificate on DepEd LMS. 

Why teachers need to have PNPKI Digital Certificate? 

Based on the press release of the Department of Education last June 28, 2021, the PNPKI digital signature is a new requirement of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for all public school teachers who will serve as Electoral Board Members. 

In the released memorandum of our division, the signatories of the procurement- related activities such as BAC members are being prioritized in the application. 

In this endeavor, DepEd made partnership with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) in processing PNPKI digital certificates application.
