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 March 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.

    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.

  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.
