PTI RANK REQUIREMENTS

Each rank of instructor in PTI can test up to the rank below his own. For example, a Guro Delawa (Instructor 2nd level) can test a student up to Guro Isa (instructor 1st level). The exception to this rule are instructors of Mataas na Guro rank, who have completed the PTI system and therefore can test up to their own level. The senior instructor ranks (Magino'o and Tuhon) are ranks given in recognition to Mataas na Guros for their service to Pekiti-Tirsia and PTI.
