The Professional Regulation Commission – Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Council of Nutrition and Dietetics reaccredited the National Nutrition Council as a CPD Provider to the Nutrition and Dietetics profession effective February 2019 to 2022. With this, the NNC can again provide CPD units to participants and speakers of its CPD-accredited programs. This includes the trainings on Nutrition Program Management, Nutrition Cluster Information Management and conferences for Nutrition Action Officers and District/City Nutrition Program Coordinators.
This is a welcome development for the nutritionist-dietitians that NNC engages with. Not only does NNC provide technical assistance and capacity building to nutrition workers, but as PRC-accredited CPD provider, NNC can also respond to their professional needs.
The CPD Council of Nutrition and Dietetics determines the CPD units to be granted for each activity. Other professionals who will attend the CPD-accredited activities of NNC will also receive units but as approved by their respective profession’s CPD Council.
The reaccreditation is in connection to RA 10912, otherwise known as CPD Law of 2016. In a related issuance, professionals are required to comply with only 15 CPD units for renewal of their professional identification cards as provided under PRC Resolution No. 2019-1146. Such change is effective March 2019 until the end of transition period as defined under Section 10.1 and 10.2 of the resolution.
