Is this the one that gives the rank P2LT as a commissioned officer?

ung sergeant sa video xa rin ang isa sa mga instructor ng PMA sa  silent drills...

err... be careful sir about the accuracy of your information... OPC is different from OCS, or should rather be OCC (http://www.army.mil.ph/Recruitment/commisionship.html)

and btw.... not meant to degrade the skill of that sergeant sa video, but NCOs are not involved in training the Silent Drill Companies of PMA. upperclass cadets are the one in-charge of training new silent drill companies (each class has their own silent drill company)

From what I know, the OPC is a 6-month course for POTC graduates. They get their regular rank as 2LT after being "recognized" (about 3 months). While the OPC is also conducted by the PA's Officer Canadidate School at TRADOC in Camp O'Donnell, it is different from the Officer Candidate Course.

The OCC, on the other hand is a 1-year course, open to qualified college graduates, whether or not you had any prior military training.

Currently, OCS has 3 OCC (OCC CL "KASIDLAKAN" 35-10, OCC CL "MASIKAD" 36-10, OCC CL-37)  and 1 OPC (OPC CL 57-10) classes ongoing. Kasidlakan is slated to graduate around March 2010 with Masikad following suit by August.
