Ralph Recto: CPD Law inconvenient for those working in graveyard shift, remote areas

Oct 18, 2018 @ 16:24

Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said that while he recognized the value of continuing professional development (CPD), he is still pushing for the repeal of the law.

The Batangas politiko said so many professionals have been complaining about the red tape and corruption brought about by the CPD law.

“Samantalang kinikilala natin ang importansya ng patuloy na pagdag­dag at paglinang sa kaalaman ng ating mga propesyunal, kaila­ngan rin nating isaalang-alang ang kapakanan nila. Sa reklamo nilang napaka-mahal na presyo ng CPD trainings at seminar, masalimuot na rekisitos at red tape na kadalasan umano ay nagreresulta sa negosyo at corruption, minabuti nating ipanukala na ipatigil muna ang implementasyon nito,” Recto explained.

He also cited the case of professionals working in the graveyard shift and those working in remote areas.

“Naging kumplikado rin para sa maraming propesyunal itong CPD program, lalo na iyung mga nasa graveyard shift, mga nasa liblib na lugar na kinakaila­ngan pang lumuwas sa Maynila o sentro ng kanilang lalawigan at magbayad ng board and lodging para makadalo sa CPD trainings, lalo na sa ating OFWs na walang kaagad na access sa murang training programs abroad,” Recto said.

“Sa panahon nga­yon na pinagpatong-patong ang pasanin ng mga Pilipino mula sa mahal na pagkain at bilihin gawa ng inflation, mataas na presyo ng langis at sadsad na halaga ng piso, magiging madali naman sigurong makakuha ng suporta sa ating kapwa mambabatas upang agad mapawalang bisa itong CPD Act,” he added.
