the-job learning and private study. 6. C – Conferences and Meetings (time weighting factor = 1) These include all conferences, symposia, technical inspections and meetings run by APO’s & PTC to provide information. Those run by other acknowledge experts could also be claimed provided that the content relates to the development of one’s professional career. The hours claimed should be for the formal technical presentations and inspections that one attended at such conferences, symposia, inspections and meetings. 7. D – Presentations and Publication of Papers (various time weighting factors) The preparation and presentation of material for courses, conferences, seminars and symposia can be claimed if these activities contribute to the engineering related competencies of engineers and associated professionals. A time weighting factor of 10 should be applied to the actual duration of the presentation if the paper is not published. Material published in journals and conference papers can be claimed as follows: 40 hours per paper for technical papers or research reports for conferences; or 50 hours per paper for papers is referred prior to publication The preparation and presentation of material designed to promote awareness of engineering, membership in PTC and benefits of registration of potential members and the community can be claimed. A time weighting factor of 5 should be applied to the actual duration of the presentation. One may claim up to 30 weighted hours of this type of CPD in any three-year period. 8. E – Service Activities (time weighting factor – 1) Service to the profession may be allowable particularly where it contributes to the continuing professional development of others. Within PTC, this includes contributions as a Member Reviewer, member of a course accreditation team, participation in CPD audits, review of technical papers prior to publication and technical aspects of work undertaken in or for the Boards and Committees of the APO’s and/or PTC, including national committees and technical societies. CPD allowable under this heading is limited to 20% of one’s total in any three years. 9. F – Industry Involvement (for academia) (time weighting factor =1 ) Engineers employed in academic positions are expected to foster links with industry to the benefit of engineering education, research and practice in Philippines. This requirement also ensures that they are exposed to developments in engineering practice outside their academic institutions. Industry involvement will normally be in the form of consulting services. However, where one has close ties with industry, one can include supervision of industry-sponsored research. Supervision of design projects carried out for industry and fieldtrips may also be counted if they have contributed to the above objectives.
