Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has recently issued a resolution crediting
CPD units to licensed professionals who will assist in administration of board examinations.
PRC Resolution No. 1118 series of 2018 signed by Chairman Teofilo S. Pilando Jr., and Commissioners Yolanda D. Reyes and Jose Y. Cueto Jr on Monday, September 25 is entitled Granting of Continuing Professional Development Credit Units for Registered and Licensed Professionals Who Will Serve as Examination Personnel During the Conduct of Various Professional Licensure Examinations.
The resolution states that registered and licensed professionals are qualified for the tasks of exam personnel such as School Coordinator, Building Supervisor, Floor Supervisor, Room Watchers, Proctors, and Security Personnel.
Based on the Implementing Rules and Regulations of CPD Act of 2016, these professionals may earn CPD units by participating in the program initiated by PRC and the Professional Regulatory Boards such as the licensure examinations.
Because of this, PRC is giving 1 credit unit per hour of actual service rendered to these professionals, as stipulated in the Certificate of Service Rendered which will be issued to them by the Director of Licensure Officer of the Director of Regional Office.
So if the board exam runs for 2 days at 8 hours per day, will the personnel who rendered service for this 2-full day gets 16 CPD units? This is great for professionals! And I believe they also have honoraria for their service.
What’s also nice about this is that professionals don’t have to file the certificate under the Self-Directed Learning, meaning it is automatically credited and they don’t have to pay P500 application fee.
Very good news to all professionals regulated by PRC! Here’s the image of the recently signed Resolution:
