Ever since it became a law, many professionals have been clamouring to repeal the CPD law due to the high costs of training, seminars, or other activities are undertaken that is related to their professions to earn the necessary CPD units. Thus, the act was deemed to make the process costly, more bureaucratic, and unnecessarily regulative.

Most if not all Professional are happy about this news if this was indeed true. Most of Filipino professionals think that the CPD law does not do any good to anybody except for those who are making these seminars, workshop, and whatnot as a business.
Overseas Filipino workers are the most affected by this law since it is very difficult for some to earn the required CPD points in order for them to renew their respective licenses.
