  1. Nilo V. Rosende, Central Visayas District says:

    If accepted in the Philippine context, as far as i remember the former ordination required units total of 90 units. Now, these 24 COS is total of 72 units. Does it mean to be ordain you need only 72 units? That is to qualify for ordination? Thank you.

  2. equip-admin says:

    Yes, if the Regional COS is adopted the student can be qualified for ordination – in terms of their educational requirements by finishing these 24 classes. The minimum standard is 3 years of full time equivalent study at a Bachlor’s level. These classes meet that minimum standard.
