The Asean Monitoring Committee of Engineering Services of the Philippines (AMCESP) conducted an assessment on the level of competencies, academic qualification, and professional practices for Asean Chartered Professional Engineers (ACPE).
Some 28 electrical engineers from the Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers of the Philippines, Qatar Chapter (IIEE-SQC) were assessed to obtain certification in their fields of specialisation.
Members of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC); AMCESP; Francis V Mapile, chairman of Professional Regulatory Board of Electrical Engineering (PRBEE); Leandro Conti, chairman of the PRB of Mechanical Engineering; Alnar Detalla, chairman of the PRB of ECE; and member of PRBEE Jaime V Mendoza comprised the expert panel.
Engineer Lyndon Bague attended on behalf of the Commission of Higher Education. The Philippine Technological Council (PTC) specialists of panelist delegations were Dr Florigo C Varona; Engr Robert U Mabulay, vice-chairman of the IIEE AAPER (Asean and Asia Pacific Engineer Registers) Committee; and engineers Sheila C Cabaraban, Florencio D Berenguel, Rodrigo T Pecolera, and Dr Angel de V Vera, members of the IIEE AAPER Committee.
The Batch 7 ACPE applicants benefited from IIEE-mentoring of SQC’s programme on professional development and career certification for its knowledgeable and experienced electrical practitioners. This was based on their recently completed qualifying online interview to be registered as ACPE.
From July 12 to 15, the candidates gathered in Doha for the AMCESP, organised by PRC’s International Affairs Office in Manila.
The 2022 Board of Directors is led by IIEE-SQC president Lauren M Olivos in helping the organisation's general membership gain professional qualifications and career advancement. The ACPE-AER committee chairman, Erwin S Peniones, along with former presidents' advisers, engineers Edgar B Bernardino, Rudilyn S Reyes, and Teofilo F Tongson, supported the recently finished interview for ACPE applicants.
Engineers would be able to undertake their specialised engineering practice and encourage a simpler free flow of professional services under the Mutual Recognition Arrangements, which is under the Community Council throughout the Asean region if eventual endorsement and approval for the ACPE registration were granted.
