Continuing Professional Development

CCGeo is an accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Provider for Geodetic Engineering by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) through its CPD Council of Geodetic Engineering.

Background

The CPD Act of 2016 (also called the “CPD Law”) defines CPD as “the inculcation of advanced knowledge, skills and ethical values in a post-licensure specialization or in an inter- or multidisciplinary field of study, for assimilation into professional practice, self-directed research and/or lifelong learning.” The CPD Programs can include a set of learning activities accredited by the CPD Council such as seminars, workshops, technical lectures, and trainings, among others.

The CPD Law has made CPD as a mandatory requirement in the renewal of the Professional Identification Cards (PICs) of all registered and licensed professionals.

The CPD Council of Geodetic Engineering chaired by Engr. Randolf S. Vicente (third from left) awards the Certificate of Accreditation to CCGeo to CSU President Anthony M. Penaso (center) and CCGeo Director Engr. Jojene R. Santillan. Also present are Engr. Epifanio D. Lopez (Chair of the Professional Board of Geodetic Engineering, PRC), Engr. Meriam M. Santillan (Dean of the College of Engineering and Geosciences).
CCGeo’s Certificate of Accreditation (No. 2018-003) was given on April 12, 2018.
