    whoever enacted this whole CPD units requirement into law is bull..your squeezing every centavo to all Filipino workers who are paid measly..imagine 1,000 pesos to be equivalent to just 4 units in a seminar that can only cater to limited slots how can that accomadate to thousands of professionals?.. instead of saving this money and using it for daily expenses we are subjected to a burden of payment to our already hard-earned license..i just hoped that this was well though about before it was put into law..this is not to educate professionals but is making the already poor Filipino workers even poorer

      There should be a CATEGORY in CPD requirements ,those newly registered and with more than 10 years of experienced. CPD on my opinion must be given FREE OF CHARGE to all Registered professional since we are already paying in our Annual Dues,Chapter Dues and PRC renewal to include Sedula and PTR payment together with quarterly and yearly taxation. What is happening in this government? you strive hard to study and to passed in Government Examination for the ID's is not so easy and cost you a lot of money and sacrifices,now that you overcome these hassles .... then there you go ... you are asking that CPD is a passport to renew our PRC ID " NASAAN NAMAN ANG PUSO NYO at MATALINONG KAISIPAN????

    Unfair po ito lalong lalo na sa mga nagtatrabaho na ng ilang taon na established na ang posisyon at hindi sapat ang oras para dumalo sa iba't ibang seminar. Ibig bang sabihin nito na kapag hindi na-irenew ang lisensiya dahil sa kakulangan ng oras para makumpleto ang units ng CPD ay hindi na ito magagamit ng propesyunal sa kanyang trabaho? Papaano na ang matatagal sa trabaho? Kung ganito rin naman pala ang gusto ng gobyerno ay sana ang kunin nilang trabahador ay lisensyado lahat, hindi sila kukuha ng walang lisensiya. Unfair ito na mas papaboran ang mga nagtatrabaho na walang lisensiya kumpara sa mga licensed professional na naexpired lang ang lisensiya dahil sa CPD units na iyan.

    Pahirap ang ginawa nilang pagpasa sa batas na iyan dahil una, hindi lahat ng nagkaroon ng lisensya ay may trabaho sa ngayon o nagtatrabaho sa field na sakop ng kanyang lisensiya. Pangalawa, masyadong magastos ito dahil para lamang magkaroon ng kakarampot na units ay kailangan mong magbayad ng mahal. Hindi pa ba sapat ang kinikita sa taunang renewal at kailangan pang pahirapan ang bulsa ng mga hindi sapat ang kinikita sa araw-araw? Ikatlo, matinding paghihirap ang dinanas ng isang indibidwal bago niya makuha ang lisensya. May mga nakakailang-take pa nga para lamang makuha ito at ngayon, gagawin nilang tatlong taon lamang ang validity nito. Personal kong opinyon ito, mas nanaiisin ko pa na ang renewal na lang lisensya ay sa pamamagitan ng exam at hindi ng CPD units. Dahil ang exam ay isa o dalawang araw mo lang bubunuin at mas mura kumpara sa CPD units na kakain ng maraming oras at salapi na unfair para sa mga nagtatrabaho.

    Sa kabuuan, tutol ako sa batas na iyan at dapat lamang na gumawa tayo ng petisyon laban sa batas na iyan.

    Dahil sa sitwasyon na iyon, parang ang nangyari lang ay kumuha ka ng exam sa pagiging propesyonal na tatlong taon lang ang validity, hindi iyong pangmatagalan. Ano pa ang susunod? Baka naman pati NSO birth certificate ay kailangan na ring irenew dahil may expiration date na rin ito (biro lang... pampagood vibes lang).

    Tutulan ang batas na ito hangga't maaga pa.

    I agree with everone's sentiments. Salary in the Philippines is so low, now I have to save for a convention in Tagaytay, considering Im from Iligan City, im saving every penny to attend seminars and conventions just to get 45 points. So disheartening! Good that im single, what if i have a family to feed?!

    pag marami na ang nagooffer nang CPD Seminars, bababa na ung seminar fees and it will enhance our professional skills and knowledge continuously dahil mas accessible na ung mga seminars na needed natin for this changing era. Mas pahahalagahan na ang mga Professional and in due time I wish.... wala nang magooffer nang free of charge Professional Fee dahil may required CPD na. Hopefully positive ang maging outcome and not a waste of money and mga CPD providers lang ang kumita, hopefully may supporting activities for this transition years.

  15. There should be a more intensive punishment sa mga non-professional na nag ooffer nang services to fool clients na kumakagat sa libre, (pati client na tumanggap nang libre or sobrang baba kastiguhin na rin). Para masuportahan ung mga compliant sa batas na ito.

  17. In the first place, implementation of this CPD IRR should be after 3 years upon its publication. Please think about it.

  18. Philippines is not ready for this CPD. Please, we are not guinea pigs.

  19. If you implement the CPD system and give a burden to license professional, load a lot burden who those who are practicing profession without license. Cleanse and heavily-penalized industries that accept under-qualified (no professional ID) and unqualified personnel that takes on job for professionals. Then, the demand for true professionals will be high and we can take pay increase on this. PRC and the government is not protecting the interest of the true professionals. In exchange to CPD system, protect the professionals from the competition against no-license people. Those no-license do not renew licenses and does not go through CPD system. If you do not protect licensed professionals, people will opt not to take board exam because they can work as "professional" but without the burden of CPD system.

  20. Mahirap po sa part naming indi naman nagagamit ang aming propesyon to renew license with cpd units, ang laki na po ng tulong samin na after 3 years go to PRC and renew our license and we don't need to submit any units from seminars/ trainings. Malaki pong abala, magastos sa tulad namin indi naman ganun kalaki ang kinikita. Sana naman po ma amend ang CPD na yan dahil malaking pasanin sa tulad namin maliit lang ang kinita at may sariling pamilya.

  21. unfair po ito para sa mga license midwives and nurses na nag work as a clerk or a partime job only or they did'nt use their professional license, aabsent pa po sa office/ work just to attend seminars to earn cpd units. Karamihan po kasi sa ka batch kong nag graduate,, imbes na sa clinic or hospital sila mag work as a registered nurse or midwifes , andun po sila sa office they do paper works just to earn for their family.

  22. ...dahil ba di makapag.comply sa CPD requirements ay kakalimutan na ang lahat ng aming mga paghihirap at pagtitiyaga upang mapasama sa roll ng registered professionals; alam ba nila kung gaanong paghihirap at pasanain ito ng mga magulang makapag.aral lang at maging professional ang mga anak...nasaan ang hustisya? kung nais i-upgrade ng government ang competency among professionals they have to start revising the school curriculum and sponsor programs at the government expense---para may pakinabang naman don sa mga buwis na ibinabayad ng mga professionals...

  23. hindi man lahat ng professsional is inline of what course they graduated, pano ang mga tulad ko na wala sa propesyon na tinapos ko at hindi nagagamit ang license at hindi marenew dahil sa kakulangan ng panahon upang kumita ng pera na gastusin ng aking pamilya ngayon nadagdag pa ang CPD na yan sa liit po ng sweldo ko wala na nga pangrenew e gagastos pa sa CPD na yan.isa pang dahilan ang mga corrupt sa gobyerno di ba nabalita sa TV ang "ITEM FOR SALE" kaylangan mo magbayad or magoffer ng some amount sa higher official ng gobyerno. di ba malupit na kalakaranyan.........
