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,

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.
