These students are Ms. Kristine Carmen D. Diones, Ms. Marlyn S. Lazaro, Mr. Andrew Ian B. Dormitorio, Mr. Marc Louie M. Almario, Ms. Shiela Beatriz L. Barroga, and Mr. Joshua Federick J. Vitaliz. The results of the EnP exam was released by the PRC on 13 June 2018.

The EnP Exam is conducted yearly in compliance with the Republic Act 10587 or The Environmental Planning Act of 2013. The Act aims to regulate the practice of environmental planning by making sure that planning practitioners are competent and qualified to practice their profession. According to the law, only registered and licensed environmental planners will be allowed to head planning groups, departments, and divisions, including the government planning offices of provinces, cities, and municipalities starting this year.

FMDS congratulates EnP. Diones, EnP. Lazaro, EnP. Dormitorio, EnP. Almario, EnP. Vitaliz, and EnP. Barroga for their accomplishments.
