Final Draft of IRR for CPD Law Reduces Requirement to Just 15 Units

The final draft of the new Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the Continuing Professional Development Law of 2016 (CPD Law) has been released. 

On February 4, the PRC announced that it will temporary lift the total enforcement of the CPD law for an indefinite period.

Until the new IRR is released, newly licensed professionals and OFWs are exempted from complying with the CPD requirements, under the transition period. Meanwhile, all councils were directed to reduce the requirement to just 15 CPD units.

Under the final draft of the new IRR, the following provisions are included:

1. CPD is still a mandatory requirement for all licensed professionals. However, the number will be decreased to just 15 units every 3 years.
2. For teachers, CPD forms will be aligned with the DepEd to lessen the burden of paperwork.
3. In-house training and capacity-building activities of government agencies and corporations, including local government units and private employers shall be credited and considered as CPD compliance.
4. More good news awaits professionals after it was announced that “until the PRC complies with certain pre-conditions, all seminars attended by licensed professionals should be recognized as CPD units and shall be accepted as valid for the renewal of their licenses.”
