Ralph Recto urges Congress to listen to calls for CPD Law repeal

Oct 17, 2018 @ 9:14

Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said Congress should heed the call of professionals to junk the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Law.

The Batangas politiko said many professionals have complained about the inconveniences caused by the CPD Law.

“In one online poll reportedly conducted by the PRC, 90 percent of the respondents want CPD abolished,” Recto said.

“It is time for Congress to heed the clamor of 3.2 million registered Filipino professionals to unburden them of this law,” he added.

He cited how nurses and teachers have protested in the hurdles presented by the CPD Law to getting their licenses renewed.

“Pulling the plug on the CPD experiment should give all of us time to ponder other means of improving professional competence without the coercive force of the CPD model,” Recto said.

“I am confident that together, we can find a system for professional development that will be embraced by all without the disruptions, inconveniences and the high expenses the present one causes,” he added.
