CPD No Longer Required For PRC Renewal Of OFWS Should The CPD Act Be Amended

In the present rule of the Professional Regulation Commission, all professionals including those who are working abroad as overseas Filipino workers (OFW) are required to undergo CPD training and exams before they can secure or renew their professional license.

“I am confident that the committee on higher and technical education, through this technical working group, will immediately thresh out the important issues regarding this Continuing Professional Development Act,” said one of the author of the bill which seek to  repeal or change the “Continuing Professional Development Act of 2016” or  Republic Act 10912.

Ads  Sponsored Links          The panel, chaired by Antique Rep. Paolo Everardo Javier, created a technical working group (TWG) to draft a substitute bill on measures seeking to amend or repeal Republic Act 10912 or the “Continuing Professional Development Act of 2016”.  “The law should be amended or even repealed for the sake of our OFWs and local professionals,” Ako Bicol party-list Rep. Rodel Batocabe, one of the authors of the bill, said.  Batocabe, along with fellow Ako Bicol Party-list Reps. Alfredo Garbin, Jr. and Christopher Co filed House Bill 6461 seeking to exempt overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from the continuing professional development requirements in the renewal of their license under the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).  “I am merely voicing out the sentiments of our constituents, particularly OFWs who are unduly burdened by this requirement of a mandatory Continuing Professional Development in order to renew their professional license,” Batocabe said.  He said OFW professionals already undergo professional development in their employment or by their employers abroad.  “So, requiring them to undergo another continuing professional development here, for purposes of license renewal, is already excessive,” Batocabe said.  “Another thing is, during the period when OFWs work abroad, they are in fact outside the jurisdiction of the PRC, so it would be absurd if their license renewal should be subject to the requirements of the PRC while these OFWs are abroad,” he added.  ACT Teachers party-list Rep. Antonio Tinio and Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate insisted that RA 10912 should be repealed, citing that its implementation has imposed multiple, logistical and psychological burdens on professionals especially to nurses and teachers.  For his part, Quezon City Rep. Winston Castelo described as burdensome the practice of continuing professional development not only to the OFWs but to all licensed professionals.  Under the law, PRC undertakes the overall implementation of the CPD programs together with the Professional Regulatory Boards (PRBs).

ur fervent warning to all: do not trust anyone you only knew over the internet.  Being compassionate is one of the good traits of the Filipinos especially the overseas Filipino workers (OFW). They could not help but extend help when they know that somebody needed it badly.  The downside of it is that they are being vulnerable to abuse. Just like an OFW who was victimized by a scammer whom he only knew on social media. The suspect asked him to give money over reasons he only made up and ran away with a sum of P4 million.     Ads     Sponsored Links  The suspect was arrested by the operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Anti-Graft Division following the complaints of his OFW victim, Dale (real name withheld) that he made up stories to gain the victim's compassion and extort money from the poor victim.  The suspect, Jason Rabe, was arrested inside a mall.  Dale narrated that he was giving cash to the suspect in multiple occasions since last year.  Rabe told the OFW that he needed money for the hospitalization of his sibling. He also told the OFW that his parents and his other sibling died just recently.  In total, including the money he sent for an alleged business investment, the suspect took P4 million cash from the OFW victim.  With growing suspicion, the OFW finally investigated and found out that there was no business investment and all the stories that the suspect was telling him were all nonexistent and made up by the suspect to extort cash from him.  NBI Anti-Graft Division acting chief Nathaniel Ramos warns the public to be very cautious, observant and vigilant especially on those people whom you only knew online Rabe is now caressing the iron bars in effect of violation to Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 and estafa charges.

A Filipino woman faked her own death and stole her sister’s identity just to apply for a passport. Unfortunately, she is now about to lose her U.S. citizenship. Identity theft is a serious crime.      Ads  Sponsored Links  A 43-year-old Emilita Arindela, of Mount Desert Island, was sentenced to 10 days in jail for making a false statement on her passport application in federal court in Maine. It’s unclear if she will be stripped off of her American citizenship by federal authorities but it is more likely to happen.  Prosecutors say Arindela was already married when she married an American man in 2000. She moved to the U.S. in 2002 and later became a naturalized citizen, using her sister’s name. Arindela left her second husband and married another man in 2007.  Arindela’s lawyer says his client escaped an abusive marriage in the Philippines and has been a obedience to the US laws.

In spite of the rising prices of commodities and services and others due to the high inflation rate, many Filipinos believe that the country is on the right track. Just recently, the new minimum fare is being set to P10 while the minimum wage remains stuck. That is what the latest SWS survey indicates.      Ads      Sponsored Links   The latest survey shows that from 70% in the second quarter of this year, the statistics went up to 75%.  On the other hand, only 22% believed the Philippines is in the wrong path while 3% of the 1,500 respondents did not give an answer during the conducted survey.  Malacañang welcomes this result as a vindication that the administration is doing their job the keep the country on track.  “PRRD emphasized in numerous occasions that as government workers, we are here to serve the people. Our objective as public servants is thus being able to perform our respective duties well,” Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.  “Therefore, we treat the results of this recent survey not as an accolade but as an inspiration for our men and women in the government as they persist in carrying on with their roles in the service,” Panelo added.  According to the presidential spokesperson, the strong public appreciation would further engage the Filipino people in supporting the Duterte administration in building “a nation where all Filipinos can experience comfortable and decent lives under a trustworthy government.” Filed under the category of commodities and services, high inflation rate, Filipinos, minimum fare, minimum wage, SWS survey
