  1. Hi! I would like to ask what the CPD requirement is for CHE for 2022? And what is the equivalent CPD points for a Master’s Degree? Thank you very much.

    1. Hi Engr. Bismonte,

      As of now, PRC has not lifted the transition period for the CPD points meaning only 15 units are required when renewing the PRC license. However, if you graduate from a Masters Degree within the 3 years period prior to the renewal, you will be granted full points. Your chapter should be able to assist you on this. If you do not have a chapter, please advise which chapter you prefer so that we can facilitate connecting you to the chapter of your preference.

      1. Good day, can I be a member in two or more chapters at the same time? I need to catch up on my cpd points so I am looking to register with other chapters. Question two: worst case scenario if I don’t have enough cpd points on time, can I renew late? Any penalty or time limit for late renewal? Question 3: wrt above question, does MBA count or should it be MSCHE only? Thank you very much sir.

        1. You can only be a member of one chapter at a time but you can move from one chapter to another. As of now, you can renew your PRC license with only 15 CPD units or signing the undertaking upon application for renewal. Graduate and post graduate degrees should be aligned to the ChE profession.

  2. Hi, I want to renew my ChE license. How many CPD points to I need. What are the course offerings available?
    I am located in Silang Cavite.

  3. Hi Engr. Delos Santos!
    Currently, PRC still requires 15 CPD points for license renewal. However, for first time renewal especially after graduation, CPD points requirements are waived. On the other hand, if CPD points are not yet sufficient, applicant can apply for undertaking. If you do not have a chapter, please advise which chapter you prefer so that we can facilitate connecting you to the chapter of your preference.
    Thank you!
