CPD Council for Architecture Gives Update at Senate Public Hearing

The Senate has conducted a public hearing last August 9 on the implementation of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Act where various stakeholders voiced their concerns. The forum was chaired by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV of the Committee on Civil Service Government Reorganization, and Professional Regulation, where Arch. Robert M. Mirafuente, Chairman of the CPD Council for Architecture, was invited as a resource person. There, Arch. Mirafuente announced that as of August 1, his Council has already accredited 17 CPD providers and 110 CPD courses. Together, these accredited courses make up a total of 620 credit units, and are currently being offered all over the country including Metro Manila, Bacolod, Baguio, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, General Santos, Lucena, Iloilo, Cavite, Davao, Bulacan, Laguna, and even Singapore. Arch. Mirafuente also described to the Committee the information dissemination efforts  undertaken on the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) website, including an updated calendar of events where architects can easily find courses that are relevant to them and all other information pertinent to it. The UAP website also shares a detailed matrix of up to 55 different ways architects can earn credit units besides attending these accredited seminars and programs. Arch. Mirafuente recommended that architects explore the wide variety of options available to them, as this would give them a well-rounded CPD education.     Courtesy: Arch. Robert M. Mirafuente, FUAP
