EPS-TOPIK (Employment Permit System-Test of Proficiency in Korean) Test is conducted by Ministry of Employment and Labor of South Korea for the selection of foreigner workers to work in Korea. It tests the language skills of potential foreign employees to make sure that they can perform their duties in Korea efficiently and can also lead their everyday life without any language problems.

Philippines conduct EPS-TOPIK Exam 1 – 3 times or more and based on the EPS-TOPIK score they make a list of eligible Filipino job seekers who can then apply for jobs and get proper working visa(E-9). The Validity of ESP-TOPIK result is 2 years from the date of announcement of results.

This year, EPS-TOPIK Test was once again held by HRDKorea in King’s College which is located in La Trinidad Benguet. In line with this, fifteen (15) Korean students of HELP went to the event last April 13 and 14 to provide their assistance to ensure that the examination goes off without a hitch. They helped with set up, greeting and registration, and site management.

In return for the HELP student’s valuable support, the volunteering for EPS-TOPIK was a fulfilling, worthwhile, and a fun experience for them. Above all, those HELP students had the opportunity to gain and develop skills and meet other volunteers.
