How to Earn CPD Units for PRC ID License Renewal?




The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announced that the full implementation of the mandatory requirement in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) units for renewal of PRC ID license will be on July 2017. PRC likewise emphasized that registered and licensed professionals have to adhere with the law, otherwise, they could not be permitted to renew their license(s).

The commission stated in Resolution No. 2016-990 series of 2016 that professionals have to comply with specific number of CPD units every three (3) years to continue with license renewal. As quoted from the latest announcement from PRC,

SEE ALSO: 

The Continuing Professional Development Program Management Committee (CPD-PMC) of the Professional Regulation Commission clarifies that Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as mandatory requirement in the renewal of professional license under Section 10 of R.A. 10912, otherwise known as the CPD Law of 2016, shall be implemented after the effectivity of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of R.A. 10912 which will be in March 2017. Thereafter, the CPD Council for each regulated profession shall issue its Operational Guidelines to implement the general IRR for its profession. However, for those professionals whose Professional Regulatory Laws require CPD credit units prior to the renewal of Professional Identification Cards (PICs), or the professional license, compliance with CPD remains mandatory.
How can professionals earn CPD Units? Registered or Licensed Professionals can acquire CPD units through Professional Track, Academic Track, Self-Directed Training and other activities recommended by the CPD Council. As stated in the Revised resolution, here is the detailed matrix of programs/activities the professionals must do to attain the corresponding CPD units, courtesy of PRC.

    1. Mag Renew ka na by February para maiwasan mo for 3 years ang required CPD units.

      Delete
    2. Hindi nyo po maiiwasan ang CPD units for renewal kasi you need the ff pts to renew:
      0. Jan to June 2017 : 0 pts
      1. June to Dec 2017 : 15 pts
      2. Jan to Dec 2018 : 30 pts
      3. Jan to Dec 2019 : 45 pts
      4. 2020 onwards : 45 pts

      so kung maka renew prior to full implementation of CPD requirements, need mo naman magacquire nang 45pts or more depende sa profession mo within 3 years para marenew mo ulit ang license mo.

      Ang profession na may CPD requirements in placed prior sa new CPD Law, ang start ng CPD units nila ay sa March 2017.

  7. Why is it that the credit unit for publishing in a local and international peer reviewed Journal is the same. It's not fair because publishing in an international journal or ISI journal is more competitive/ rigorous than the local journal.

  8. Earning CPD Points should be from "FREE" Seminars organized by the GOVERNMENT or the DEPARTMENT concerning professionals.

    Ang dating ay todo piga na sa mga mamayang license holder. Kelangan magbayad para makaattend sa mga seminars/natcons. Kelangan magleave or absent which is nakakaapekto din sa work. Paano na lang kung may deadline ka in those days diba?

    Namamatay ka na nga sa TAX tapos need pa ng gastos na to for CPD Points.

    And its time for the world to know that the notion na pag may license ka ay madali kumita ng pera at mayaman ka.

    I wish President Duterte or any "REAL" concerned senator or politician can "REALLY REVIEW" this matter and makita ang tunay na lagay ng mga License ID Holders. Di yung "PAPOGI" lang at papasa pasa ng mga batas para lang may maipasa.

    1. I'm a new professional, isang taon na lang at expired na lisensya ko. The truth is isang seminar pa lang na-aattend ko ever since at iyon ay libre lamang ng kampanyang pinag tatrabahuan ko ngayon na binibigay nila once in a year na mayrong CPD units na 4.75 and that's good for me, but if i accumulate that in 3 years it is not enough to gain my required CPD points to renew, so it will end up enroll myself to seminars which costs 1,000-1,500 for every 4-5 units. Imbes na pang badget mo na ang 1,000-1,500 pang renew ng lisensya, wala kulang pa para pang enroll sa mga seminar seminar na yan! Hindi na ko magtataka kung balang araw tayo na ang manghihingi ng mga skilled and Professionals sa ibang bansa, Why? because of you guys! FYI: Hindi kayo nakakatulong! mas lalo niyo kaming nilalagay sa kahirapan.
      Kaya halos lahat ng mga mahuhusay at magagaling nating propesyonal mas ginugustong mag ibang bansa at sa ibang inang bayan nag sisilbi. Bakit? kasi doon may pag-unlad, dito puro sila sila lang ang nakikinabang. Wake up philippines! What happened? Kinain na talaga kayo ng sistema...
      maganda ang panukalang ito to require professionals to have seminars and to continually learned "IF" they actually make governments/Private Companies to require also to do free seminars for all employees, ang nangyayari kasi pati tayo pinagkakakitaan na. -Truth Slap.

      Nakakawalang gana mag silbi sa bayan kung ganto at ganto lang naman. Haysss.

      Sorry.

    4. sad truth.. Isa pa po ay kawawa naman kaming/tayong mga hindi pa natatanggap sa anumang trabaho.. pano nalang kami/tayo makakapag renew ng license kung wala kaming pag kukunan ng pambayad sa mga seminar knowing the fact that it is costly... sad to say but this is not the real solution that our senators should implement to have a higher standard of education or career in our country... this is just another burden to us. May lisensya ka nga, di mo naman magamit ng husto tapos ngayo di mo pa mare-renew kapag wala kang CPD... wake up people of the Philippines! wake up!

  11. Kawawa naman mga mababa ang salary o ung sapat lamang ang salary na mga professionals. Sana kasi kinonsult muna yan sa taong bayan o samahan ng mga professionals dito man sa pinas o sa ibang bansa kung magiging mandatory ba ito o nde... Nde ba nila naisip na baka naman ang pag attend ng seminars o paggawa ng ibang activities ay para na lang makapuno ng CPD imbes na matuto, nagkakadahumahog sa pagbuno na lang ng CPD units required per profession? Para lang makapagrenew ng licensiya.... Maawa naman ang nagpanukala nito bumalanse naman sana wag lang basta basta implement. Kung magkagayon eh dapat ang gobyerno mismo magbigay ng mga free activities sa mga professionals para makapuno ng CPD units...

  12. Sino ba kasi nagpanukala ng CPD units na yan. Kawawa naman tayong mga mamamayan.

  13. Nasa employer o company naman kung dapat bang tanggapin ang isang applicant. Sila naman ang bahalang magdecide kung sino ba ang qualified at competent pa rin, kaya nga may mga ibinibigay silang exams interviews evaluations etc. So generally, yung mga pinaka competent lang talaga ang matatanggap sa trabaho at makakapagpractice ng professions nila. At yung mga kulang pa sa skills at di updated ang knowledge, sila na lang ang magddecide kung dapat ba silang mag self improvement para sa profession nila, o hindi na. Anyway, kahit pa may license sila pero kung kulang naman sila sa kaalaman at skills, hindi naman sila pipiliin ng employer. So dun pa lang sa process na yun mddistinguish na yung competent, from the incompetent. Yun lang mga may kulang sa skills & knowledge ang dapat maturuan pa. So PRC & lawmakers -> Bakit nyo idadamay na turuan sa cpd seminars yung mga professionals na skillful at competent naman at pumapasa naman sa mga employers at kumpanya nila? Kung tinanggap sila, or the company has been keeping 'em, it means marunong yung professional. So bakit nyo pa gustong turuan sa seminars? Nang sapilitan. At may bayad. Tsaka bakit naman nilahat nyo ang dapat magkaroon ng updates? Kung related sa computers oo, dahil laging may advances sa computer peripherals. Pero let's say, sa midwifery, lagi bang may advances at dapat i-update sa midwifery? As if naman every year or two nagbabago ang gynecology ng babae. So as to give repeated seminars tungkol dun. Uulit ulitin lang nila sa seminars nyan yung mga naituro na sa school about sa midwifery at sa iba pang profession na di nman talaga need ng updates. Paiikut ikutin lang nla nyan mga salita nila pra magtunog bago. Simple lang naman kasi ang solusyon pra masiguro na yung mga magrrenew ng license ay competent pa rin. Hindi cpd seminars ang solusyon. Bigyan nyo na lang ng one time exam yung mga magrrenew. Just to make sure na alam pa rin nila yung profession nla. Kaso ang nangyari kasi, si trillanes atbp, naghanap ng dapat problemahin, tapos ang solusyon nakita nila ilang hakbang ang layo, pero sa pagpunta dun nagsasayaw sila ng cha-cha.

  19. I'm choosing not to renew my license. After 3 years kasi mukhang panibagong pangongolekta nanaman ng points. I'm in the teaching profession pero online. I think there's no way para ma-recognize nila as teaching tong ginagawa ko. Sad life ~

  20. hi. my license expired last dec 2016, and yet till now i havent got a chance to renew it. kelangan ko pa rin ba yung points to renew it even though 2016 pa expired yung license ko? ang hirap kasi sa government kaasar... i've been applying for deped teacher 1 position for 3 consecutive years. nakapag-sub na din ako pero wala pa din.. and then now you ask for points??? wtf!?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hay Naku! Paano naman kaming mga professional teachers na newly grad. Ang hirap na ngang ipasa yung ranking dahil kasama sa points ang experience. Tapos dagdag na naman yang CPD na yan. Gastos plus kailangan mung mag laan ng time to attend seminars, paano na ang kabuhayan? Ano? hindi nalang kami kakain? Sa katulad ko rin na hindi na practice ang profession dahil pahirapan ang pag apply sa government. Hindi naman pwedeng habang nag aantay mag turo ka sa private, mag kano lang naman ang sweldo ng isang private teachers? so para matustusan ang pangangailangan araw2x we need to be practical syempre mag hahanap ka ng trabaho na mas malaki laki ang kita. Ngayun na nag tratrabaho ako sa isang private company at okay naman ang sahod, hindi ko na na practice ang pagtuturo pero balak kung mag turo as part time job ko, pero paano ko magagawa yun kung hindi ko ma renew licensya ko dahil sa CPD na yan. PAg isipan nyong mabuti yan. Maraming hindi na practice profession nila dahil nakahanap sila ng ibang trabaho na may mas malaking kita pero hindi ibig sabihin nun hindi na nila mahal profession nila...hindi na nila e re-renew mga licensya nila, iba pa rin kapag may license ka kahit hindi mo ito na practice Syempre pinaghirapan mo pa rin yan...bunga yan ng pagsisikap mo nung college days mo. Alangan naman mag laan kami ng time to attend semenar at gumastos ng gumastos makalikom lang ng CPD points at ma renew. Dyos ko po. Parang awa nyo na po.
