According to Councilor Jeslito Seen, the PCL-LA offers academic advancement programs to elective officials of the local government units (LGU) in Pangasinan and the country.

According to Dr. Helario Caminero, PCL-LA executive director, PCL-LA was created in June 24, 2010.

He explained that the clientele of these programs are barangay officials who want to finish for just several months their basic education like elementary and high school education, city and municipal officials for their baccalaureate and master courses, provincial officers for their baccalaureate and master degrees.
“Why did they take the courses for several months only? Because as elective officials they have already the real and actual experiences how public administrations are ran,” Seen explained.
What inspired the PCL-LA’s Capacity Program, according to Seen, were the Open University or Online Schools, Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT), Alternative Learning System (ALS), Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency & Accreditation Program (ETEEAP), Bachelor’s Degree for Executives, and PCL-LA’s Customized Innovative Capacity Development-Degree Earning Programme for Public Sector (CD-DEP-PS).
