The Dr. Carl E. Balita Review Center or popularly known as CBRC is the biggest, most awarded, and the only ISO 9001-2015 certified business of its kind. An off-shoot of the “review experience” of its founder Dr. Carl E. Balita who started in the review industry in 1993. Founded in 2004 with just a chair and a table to boot, CBRC has come a long way with 125 branches now in major cities nationwide, producing hundreds of topnotchers and thousands of board passers.
CBRC Headquarters is strategically located in Sampaloc, Manila, offering review programs in Education: Board Licensure Exam for Professional Teachers (BLEPT) and Languages; Health Sciences: Nurse Licensure Examination (NLE) and Midwifery Licensure Examination (MLE); Criminology; Civil Service; Social Work among many others.
As additional tools for learning, CBRC publishes high quality and best-selling references and reviewers such as "The Ultimate Learning Guide" series and organizes national events aimed for the growth and development of professionals in the country.
Apart from the review centers, CBRC has further expanded to a Tutorial Center, a learning hub that caters to the academic and language needs of its young students. It has also established an entrepreneurial pre-school, the Dr. Carl E. Balita Pedagogy Learning Center.
Additionally, CBRC also actively produces social media content to cater to the current needs of lifelong learners and engages in film productions that portray the hard work and dedication of professionals through the Dr. Carl Balita Productions.
Throughout the years, CBRC has established its dominant position in the Philippines through franchising. It continuously expands its operation internationally in the Middle East, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Canada.
As proof, CBRC has received the Franchise Excellence Hall of Fame Award as the Most Outstanding Filipino Franchise and the Best in Marketing at the Franchise Asia Philippines' "Franchise Excellence Award (FEA)," aligning itself with the country's biggest brands and providing lifelong learners with certifiably quality and consistent results.
