PRC expanding training programs eligible for CPD license renewal

THE PROFESSIONAL Regulation Commission (PRC) is increasing the number of programs that can be accredited under the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Law in order to facilitate compliance by professionals.

Speaking with BusinessWorld, PRC Chairman Teofilo S. Pilando said that the expansion comes as it seeks to expand its training facilities during the law’s transitory period. Part of the program is decentralizing sites that offer CPD units away from Metro Manila.

“There are more providers being accredited and more programs being accredited… We’re improving systems and technologies so that programs can be facilitated,” he said.

PRC Resolution No. 2019-1146, which was released Feb. 13, relaxed the requirements for professionals to renew their professional licenses during the transitory period. It also amends the law’s Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR), reducing the minimum CPD units for license renewal to 15 units from 45.

Also during the transitory period, professionals located overseas and professionals who are newly licensed are exempt from renewing their licenses during the first renewal cycle. Professions governed by Professional Regulatory Laws are also not covered by the guidelines.

The PRC is also using the period to boost the capability of CPD Councils in each regulated profession. Mr. Pilando added, “We’re also building the capacity of the CPD Council.”

Mr. Pilando said that the PRC is improving services outside Metro Manila, adding, “We are enhancing our regional offices and setting up service centers all over the country.” — Gillian M. Cortez
